Frozen Sweeps To Top Of US Box Office
It nudges Catching Fire Into Second

After debuting in second place against reigning champ The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Disney’s new feature animation Frozen has pulled off the impressive trick of switching places this week, jumping to the top of the US box office charts with $31.6 million. But Katniss and co stayed strong despite losing this round, earning $27 million.

Though the producers were clearly hoping for a little counter-programming action by releasing adult-orientated fare against two films aimed at younger audiences, Christian Bale / Casey Affleck drama Out Of The Furnace had to make do with third place and $5.3 million. That put it ahead of Thor: The Dark World in fourth with $4.7 million and Delivery Man, which leapt up one place to fifth, taking home $3.7 million along the way.

Homefront was sixth with $3.3 million, The Book Thief stayed in seventh with $2.7 million and The Best Man Holiday slipped to eighth and $2.6 million. Rounding out the top 10 we have awards contenders Philomena ninth ($2.2 million) and Dallas Buyers Club 10th with $1.4 million.

To see two sisters take on everyone else and win in the full chart listings, head to Box Office Mojo.
