After two weeks at the top,"Catching Fire" slipped on the ice of "Frozen." Without a major new release in the way, "Frozen" does indeed take over, at least for now, to the tune of $31.6 million. "Catching Fire" is second with $26.3 million.
It wasn't as big as "The Avengers" but it did beat "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2." It would be "Iron Man 3" with a box office haul of $175 million. It completely dwarfed the competition.
Disney has announced that for the second year in a row it will open for one day and one night for 24 hours. The promotion is to kick off summer and also promote its soon-to-be-released "Monsters University!" film.
