Frozen heated up the box office this weekend, earning an estimated $31.6 million. The Disney feature, which dropped 53% from the previous weekend, overtook The Hunger Games: Catching Fire for first place. It is the first time an animated film has moved upward into first place during its second weekend since Disney’s Tangled in 2010. Frozen has now grossed $134.3M at the domestic box office; Tangled had only $96.6M at this point in its run, and went on to gross over $200M.

Frozen added an extra $30.6M from foreign box office receipts, boosting its overseas cume to $55.9M. In total, the film has grossed $190.2M worldwide and is on track to become this year’s fourth animated feature to gross over $500 million, alongside Despicable Me 2, Monsters University, and The Croods.
