A pair of holdovers, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and “Frozen,” look to heat up what is historically a chilly weekend at the domestic box office. The pair are expected to gross somewhere in the high-$20 millions, low-$30 millions each after fueling a record-setting Thanksgiving B.O. feast last weekend.
“Frozen” might have a slight edge over “Hunger Games” given the toon’s broad family appeal.
The only new release will be Relativity Media’s revenge drama “Out of the Furnace,” starring Christian Bale, Zoe Saldana, Casey Affleck and Woody Harrelson. Pic, which bowed Wednesday at four locations and expands nationwide on Friday, is expected to gross $6 million-$8 million, a decent start for the modestly budgeted film.
