Disney's 'Frozen' hot, but can't catch 'Catching Fire' at box office

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' sizzled at the number one spot at the box office this weekend while Disney's 'Frozen' kept it cool in second place. On its second weekend 'Catching Fire' raked in $75 million, a Thanksgiving record.

Fire and ice were the big winners at the box office this weekend, with “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” once again taking the top spot and the animated Disney flick “Frozen” coming in second.

The second installment in the wildly popular “Hunger Games” series took in a scorching $75 million in its second weekend, a Thanksgiving record, bringing its total domestic haul to $297 million. The sequel took in $110.2 million in ticket sales from Wednesday to Sunday.

The animated Disney retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s “Snow Queen” earned $67 million in its opening weekend and $93 million from Wednesday to Sunday.

“Thor: The Dark World,” which was knocked out of the No. 1 slot by “Fire” last week, slipped to third with $11.1 million.
