Box Score: Thanksgiving is Frozen and Catching Fire



Hollywood is especially thankful this holiday weekend as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire [HGAM2] led the box office to a new Thanksgiving record high.  The sequel took in an estimated $110.1 million over five days, besting the previous high of $82.4 million by Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Catching Fire has amassed $296.5 million after two weekends.

Frozen [FROZE] debuted in second place with $93.0 million to set a new mark for the five-days Thanksgiving weekend, surpassing the $80.1 million record held by Toy Story 2 for 14 years.  With great word of mouth from a CinemaScore of A+, Disney's animated musical should enjoy a long winter.

The other new releases didn't fare as well.  Homefront [HMFRN] secured $9.8 million to open in fifth place.

In its first weekend of wide release, The Book Thief [BKTHF] finished seventh at $6.4 million.  The drama stands at $7.9 million.

Black Nativity [BNTVT] managed just $5.0 million in its debut over Thanksgiving, while Philomena [PHILO] earned $4.6 million in its wide expansion to 835 theaters.
