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.

This weekend’s only wide release, counterprogramming fare for families and teen auds, is Relativity’s “Out of the Furnace” with Woody Harrelson, Christian Bale, Casey Affleck and Zoe Saldana. »
