Box Office Roundup (11/29 – 12/1)

Maria Millage ’17/ Emertainment Monthly Staff Writer

The second installment in the popular Hunger Games franchise is still leading the box office by a solid margin this weekend, likely because of both the hype surrounding it prior to its release and the praise it has been receiving from critics and audience members alike. The film is a definite improvement over the adaptation of the first and that’s clearly still drawing audiences in droves to theaters. Disney’s newcomer Frozen stole the second place spot from Thor: The Dark World. However Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston as the buff Norse god of thunder and his adopted brother, still brought in enough crowds to earn the film third place. Frozen, meanwhile, is being called a new and entertaining kind of fairy tale that is a good option for all ages.
