Holiday Weekend Brings Big Box Office Numbers

It was a record breaking weekend at the box office.

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" earned a prodigious $75 million, while 3-D animated musical "Frozen" opened with $67 million.

Both films bested the previous Thanksgiving record holder, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," which earned $57.5 million in 2001 over a three-day period.

"Frozen" is now the biggest Thanksgiving wide release opener ever.

From Wednesday to Sunday, "Catching Fire" brought in $110.2 million, bringing the domestic total to $297 million. "Frozen" scored $93 million.
