In its fourth weekend of wide release, Frozen landed in 3rd place with a stellar $19.2 million (estimated). The film eased just 15% from last weekend, and its total gross of $191.6M has now surpassed Wreck-It Ralph’s $189.4M. In a few days, Frozen will also overtake Tangled’s domestic gross of $200.8M and may approach the $300M mark as it goes on to become Disney’s most successful CG feature to date. Overseas, Frozen has tacked on an additional $152.6M for a worldwide total of $344.2M.

Disney also pushed its Walt Disney biopic Saving Mr. Banks into wide release last weekend. The film landed in fifth place with $9.3 mil (est) and a mild $4,418 per theater average. Fox’s peculiar animated feature pickup Walking with Dinosaurs which was marketed slightly and only as a film for small tots, opened in 8th place with a paltry $7.3M (est). The film’s wide debut in 3,231 theaters netted a miserable $2,259 per theater average. The last animated film to flop so badly in a 3000+ theater debut was Disney’s 2011 release Mars Needs Moms. Dinosaurs performed poorly overseas as well, netting just $13.8M from 41 territories.
