Disney's Frozen

As the East Coast and mid-West continue enduring wintery weather, it's fitting that Disney's Frozen re-takes the weekend box office.

In its seventh weekend, the animated film claims the office top spot with $20.7 million as its domestic haul closes in on $300 million. Frozen has surpassed $600 million worldwide, making it the second highest grossing Disney Animation release, behind The Lion King; and is expected to soon pass that film's $312 million domestic haul, too.

In at #2 is the weekend's sole new release, the horror flick, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones. The film debuts with $18.2 million to start, a total that includes Thursday night screenings. It's a stand-alone story spun off from the low-budget horror franchise, Paranormal Activity.

Last weekend's top movie, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, falls to #3 this weekend with $16.2 million and $229.6 million today.

After debuting at #5, The Wolf Of Wall Street climbs to #4 with $13.4 million; and American Hustle closes out the top 5 with $13.2 million.

That's a wrap for this weekend. This upcoming week, look out for the release of The Legend of Hercules.

This weekend's top 10 is as follows:

1. "Frozen," $20.7 million.
2. "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones," $18.2 million.
