Disney animation, ‘Frozen’, made a flying start at the North American box office, grossing a powerful $15.2m on Wednesday as the Thanksgiving session got under way. With first night audiences awarding the film an outstanding ‘A+’ CinemaScore, word of mouth should propel it to a $75m+ five-day tally.
Usually that would be enough for ‘Frozen’ to claim the No. 1 spot but ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ is showing no sign of slowing down. The action sequel earned a whacking $20.7m on Wednesday and should enjoy a second weekend hold close to the $100m mark.
