Frozen wins the weekend!

There was a chance this weekend for Walt Disney’s Frozen to over take The Hunger Games Sequel. It did and Frozen also knocked down Christian Bale’s Out of the Furnace. Insert all the fire and ice jokes you want here. So how did Frozen rank over with recent Disney endeavors?


Ray Subers of Box Office Mojo had this to report: “Frozen fell 53 percent to $31.6 million, which is the highest post-Thanksgiving gross ever ahead of Toy Story 2 ($27.8 million). In comparison, Tangled fell 56 percent to $21.6 million on the same weekend in 2010. Frozen has now earned $134.3 million, and it remains on track for a total around $250 million”.

I will see it in HFR 3D, in I-Max 3D, in regular 3D then wash rinse and repeat

I went to see "Out of the Furnace" this weekend.  It was a very god movie, awesome cast, but really depressing movie.

CalamityJohnson 12/9/2013 9:21:54 AM

no brainer. this is opening weekend fodder for sure. This is the meat and potatoes portion of the story. As for 3D? No way. The only movie I thought 3D enhanced was Avatar. Totally overrated and distracting.

jedibanner 12/9/2013 9:22:05 AM

3D is still alive? Huh....who knew...

Can't wait to see the midnight show of the Hobbit in good old fashion 2D greatness.

Got my tickets bought already for Friday's Hobbiity goodness.

And yes...no 3D! My daughter insisted on no 3D. "Daddy, it hurts my eyes". Good girl. :)

Glad to see Thor will creep up to 200 million domestic which I predicted wouldn't. Shame on me.

I also predicted Catching Fire would be number 1 domestic and beat Iron Man 3. Looks like it will be a tiight race. CF still needs 75 million and will take a bigger hit come this weekend. Probably make 15 million.

The Hobbit in 3D HFR is only one of two movies that DIDN't hurt my eyes. I forget what the other movie was. But even Avatar gave me a massive headache.

I'm going to check it out in regular 2D, then 3D HFR - if places around me have it.

 I saw Out of the Furnace too. Great cast and story, but yeah it was pretty depressing. Still enjoyed it though. Is that weird.

DarthBob 12/9/2013 11:05:42 AM

Will see 2D this weekend; for me 3D is just overrated hype and adds nothing to the movie going experience. I believe its sole purpose is to separate movie goers from more of their hard earned money while providing absolutely no increase in entertainment value. If you like then good for you.

ElBaz13 12/9/2013 11:57:11 AM

@Darthbob.

It's just an excuse to raise ticket prices and a very cheap way of doing it.

I still recall the backlash when ticket prices went up here. At one point it was $14-15 to see a movie (this was before 3D). It was getting ridiculous and then movie theatres were wondering why numbers were dwindling.

The prices have been good, they are about $10-11 now and been like that for a awhile. But...in order to increase ticket prices, they went the 3D route (following Cameron's lead) and kept the prices up, even though they said they would lower them once 3D was mainstream. Now it's just a prime excise to make a few extra bucks a seat.

I'm 3D blind therefore have no benefot from it. What pisses me off is when a theatre only has 3D showings and I want to see that movie. I'm forced to fork over the extra fee for something I can't benefit.

I just can't get into any of the LotR or Hobbit movies no matter how hard I try.  Good enough way to spend a few hours on a weekend, but other than that, I can take it or leave it.
