Appropriately, “Frozen” Tops Weekend Box Office

NEW YORK (January 5, 2014) On a wintry weekend, Disney's "Frozen" reclaimed the top spot at the box office with $20.7 million, freezing out the horror spinoff "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones,” according to studio estimates Sunday.

Paramount's "The Marked Ones" debuted in second place with $18.2 million, a total that includes Thursday night screenings.

The film, a stand-alone story spun off from the lucrative, low-budget horror franchise "Paranormal Activity,” but it wasn't able to overcome Disney's animated "Frozen," which has been a hit for family audiences for the last seven weeks.

Another hold-over, Warner Bros.' "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," came in third with $16.3 million in its fourth week of release.

The near-blizzard snow storm that battered the Northeast may have tempered the weekend's box-office business.
