The frame’s top contenders are a familiar pair as they dominated the box office last weekend with a wide margin of victory. The only difference this time is it appears Disney’s “Frozen” will slip past “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” for first by Sunday with about $28 million.
Friday, however, Lionsgate’s “Catching Fire” still held the lead. It took $7.7 million to “Frozen’s” $6.8 million. And Lionsgate projects the “Hunger Games” sequel to take in about $27.5 million in three days, within licking distance of “Frozen,” though rival studio estimates have its haul closer to about $25 million.
Either result would be a strong third weekend performance for the actioner, which will have a domestic cume upwards of $330 million by Monday.
