Disney fans have done it again! Even with all the competition from The Hobbit sequel and Wolf of Wall Street, Frozen has reclaimed the throne as top box office film The animated Disney musical, based on “The Snow Queen” by Hans Christian Anderson, swept the other post-holiday movies out of the water on Friday. The film made approximately $10.3M, clearing an unobstructed path to the top of the charts. Frozen has made $229.8M so far, and it looks like it just might keep its crown through the end of the weekend! But the competition is fierce—almost as fierce as a dragon! The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug came in close behind the Disney film, earning $10.1M and leaving it just shy of being the treasure of the holiday season. The bronze trophy goes to Anchorman 2, which made $7.1M this past Friday. This puts the movie at $71.2M in 10 days, and an estimated $22M over its second weekend. American Hustle claimed fourth place, and raked in $6.4M for a grand total of $46.9M in just 15 days.  David O. Russell’s last film, Silver Linings Playbook, did not do as well, taking about two weeks to reach $50M, with a $132.1M total. And finally, The Wolf of Wall Street. While this film could have been great, and nearly beat The Hobbit sequel in sales over Christmas weekend, it lost its spot after earning $6.4M this weekend. The post-holiday newer releases also took some time in the spotlight, though with a smaller audience. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, starring Ben Stiller, made a nice $4.5M. 47 Ronin made about $3.4M, and Grudge Match picked up $2.4M. Justin Beiber’s documentary Believe brought up the rear with only $790,000 in three days. Be sure to check back soon for the official weekend numbers!
