The US Box Office Results Wrap Up
with Sean Lynch
Nothing was ever going to stop The Hunger Games: Catching Fire juggernaut, especially over a holiday weekend when the tweens had full control of their time, therefore it was again the #1 movie at the USA Box Office.
However, the real surprise this weekend was Disney's animated musical Frozen. The CGI flick took $93M across five days beating out the Thanksgivng weekend record previously held by 1999's Toy Story 2.
Meanwhile, Jason Statham put the last nail in the coffin of the "action star" comebacks - after dismal performances from Stallone and Arnie's last few "non Expendables" flicks - with Homefront only managing #5 on debut with just $7M.
Also not faring well was Spike Lee's remake of asian classic Oldboy which took just $850,000 from 583 screens. It's becoming increasingly apparent that Josh Brolin just isn't leading man with most of his "starring" vehicles all crashing and burning big time.
