On a weekend in which most of the country was facing unusually frigid temperatures, Disney Animation's Frozen held well enough to take first place away from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Meanwhile, the lone newcomer Out of the Furnace was a major disappointment.Frozen fell 53 percent to $31.6 million, which is the highest post-Thanksgiving gross ever ahead of Toy Story 2 ($27.8 million). In comparison, Tangled fell 56 percent to $21.6 million on the same weekend in 2010. Frozen has now earned $134.3 million, and it remains on track for a total around $250 million.After hanging on well through the Thanksgiving holiday, Catching Fire plummeted 64 percent to $27 million this weekend. That's not a particularly good hold; for example, the last two Twilight movies held a bit better coming off Thanksgiving weekend. To date, Catching Fire has earned $336.7 million, and is still on pace to wind up north of $400 million.At 2,101 locations, Out of the Furnace opened »

Indiewire will provide updates of our predictions for the 86th Academy Award nominations through January 16th, 2014, when the nominations are announced. Here's our take on the best visual effects race. "Gravity" is absolutely the film to beat here (and is probably the one category I'd call right now). It is among 10 films that made the finalist list, which snubbed the likes of "Man of Steel" and "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty." Best visual effects predictions below. Check out all predictions in all the categories here. Lock (and Likely Winner): 1. Gravity Strong Bets 2. The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug 3. Pacific Rim 4. Star Trek Into Darkness 5. Iron Man 3 Definite Possibilities: 6. World War Z 7. Oblivion 8. Elysium 9. The Lone Ranger 10.

We kicked off our look back at the year in film with The 2013 Movie Trailer Mash-Up earlier this week, and now we have a second retrospective video paying tribute to the big screen releases this year. This one seems to have a lot more movies included, but that might just be hasty speculation. Cinefile 2013 from Miguel Branco isn't quite as grandiose as our first retrospective, but it's still a great, comprehensive look back at film. We wish the sound editing was a little more finely tuned and dialogue interconnected, but films like Dallas Buyers Club, Prince Avalanche, Pacific Rim and more still get their due diligence. Watch! Here's Miguel Branco's Cinefile 2013, sent to us by the video's creator himself via YouTube: We do have to nitpick a little bit since there's some of The Monuments Men still in the video, but this was likely in the works long before that »

New web series “Fear Force Five” is poised to take the daikaiju genre to delirious new heights when it premieres for free just in time for Christmas.
Jack Perez, director of Some Guy Who Kills People, Monster Island, and Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, is the mastermind behind the monstrous new CineFix web series, set to debut December 23rd. How crazy will this show get? The first episode’s gargantuan threat is a giant zombie pirate with a lobster claw hand. You won’t see that in “Attack on Titan.”

the cavalry in Iron Man 3... soon to be Oscar nominated
I am clearly not adept at predicting the finalists because two of the film's I had actually predicted for nominations did not even make the list: say goodbye to the Man of Steel and Oz: The Great and Powerful. Other films that Oscar won't even be considering now for this prize include: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, »

Warner Bros. has launched a three-month electronic sell-through test of five titles on Reelhouse, a startup the studio has invested in that caters to fans who want more than just a digital copy of a movie.
The studio on Thursday began offering “The Great Gatsby,” “Man of Steel,” “Argo,” the “Dark Knight” trilogy and “Pacific Rim” for rental or purchase on the Reelhouse website. The titles are presented on customized pages, which can include news and blog posts, images, free and bundled extras, interactive games, photos and both physical and digital merchandise.
Reelhouse launched a year ago, initially positioned as a platform for indie filmmakers seeking to reach ardent fans. Warner Bros. got involved through Turner/Warner Bros.’ MediaCamp startup accelerator program, which participated as a minority investor in a $1.3 million seed round of funding earlier this year.
