WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Frozen tops the chart with 31.6 million. The 53 percent drop looks steep, but post-Thanksgiving drops tend to be steep.  More significant is Frozen crossing the 100 million mark in 8 days -- just half the time it took Tangled to do so and more in line with a Pixar-like performance.  With school vacation time yet ahead, Frozen should top Tangled with roughly ~225 million domestic by the end of its run.The Hunger Games: Catching Fire also took a steep Post-Thanksgiving drop of 64 percent, but places with 27 million and 336.7 total domestic (though again the matching amount overseas is actually more important for this sequel).  Whether these Games reach 400 million domestic depends on the reseption the next Hobbit gets this upcoming weekend (the reviews so far have been better than for the first Hobbit).  Out of the Furnace shows with a mere 5.3 million, which seems to have been to gritty for the holdiays and not serious enough for the Oscars crowd. Ouch.  Thor: The Dark World slips to fourth with 4.7 million, but comes within spitting distance of 200 million domestic (and 610.3 million worldwide -- the original made 450 mill total). Delivery Man climbed onto the bottom rung of the Top 5 with 3.8 million, but has yet to recoup its production budget.
