Frozen has cooled off The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in its opening UK weekend and its second weekend at the US box office.

The Disney animated tale banked around £4.7 million at the UK box office and led the US multiplexes with a haul of 31.6 million dollars (£19.3 million) over the weekend, taking over the top spot from Catching Fire.

Alfonso Cuaron's outer space adventure Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, took third place in the UK, followed by Saving Mr Banks.

Lionsgate's Hunger Games sequel, which topped the box office for the last two weeks, slid to second place in America with 27 million dollars (£16.5 million) in its third week of release, according to studio estimates.

Both Frozen and Catching Fire continued to draw in the crowds around the world. Catching Fire added 44.3 million dollars (£27 million) internationally, bringing its global cumulative total to 673.4 million dollars (£411.2 million) over four weeks. With many millions still to come, Catching Fire has already almost equalled the 691.2 million dollars (£422.1 million) worldwide of the 2012 original.

Frozen too, has found strong business globally, adding 30.6 million dollars (£18.7 million) internationally over the weekend.

You'll appreciate their quirky ways and they'll be impressed by your extensive knowledge. It's a match made in heaven. You'll probably have to make the first move.More
