Box Office: “Frozen” does $20, “Paranormal” $18, “Anchorman” clears $100 million mark

A Tepid weekend at the box office, with holiday holdovers rounding up a few more bucks, pre-Oscar nominations (“American Hustle” is leading “Wolf of Wall Street” by a wide margin, which could shrink if the Oscars favor the latter).

“Frozen” did another $20 million. “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones” managed $18 million.

“Walter Mitty” and “Wolf of Wall Street” should surpass “A Madea Christmas” (which reached $50 million) by next weekend. “Hustle” should hit $100 million by next weekend.

“Saving Mr. Banks” is on track to hit $75, unless Oscar pitches in.

“August: Osage County” is still on only five screens, but will roll out next weekend just as the Oscar nominations are about to be announced.

“Inside Llewyn Davis,” “All is Lost” and “Nebraska” all sit below $10 million takes, in desperate need of a little Academy Award nomination lift.

And “Anchorman 2” did another $11 million to leap past the $100 million mark.
