It was an absolutely huge weekend at the box office, for both last week’s champion and this week’s new release. Here’s what went down.
Catching Fire did an incredible $74.5 million in its second weekend in release, dropping just 53% week to week, bringing its current total to $296 million and counting. Will it make it to over $400 million within a month. Magic 8 Ball says there’s a very good chance.

In its first weekend out, Disney’s Frozen was also a huge success, bringing in $66 million to debut in second place. The film should certainly have a solid run through the holiday season.
As for the rest of the top five, Thor: The Dark World hit third place with $11 million, putting it just a little over $10 million from the $200 million mark in North America. The Best Man Holiday was in fourth with $8.5 million while Homefront, this weekend’s other new release, barely registered with $6.9 million.
