The movie that won’t quit, Frozen, landed in second place. The film, in its eleventh week of release, earned $9.3 million to bring its cume to $360 million. Even though the Frozen DVD has been announced, audiences are still flocking to see the Disney masterpiece.

Third place belonged to the first of the new movies released this week to make its presence felt on the box office chart, That Awkward Moment. The Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller-starring rom-com banked $9 million in its first weekend. That figure may go up as couples looking for Valentine’s Day-type fare zero in on that flick.

Coming in fourth place was another animated movie that shows no signs of slowing, The Nut Job. The Will Arnett and Katherine Heigl-starring vehicle sold another $7.6 million in tickets, bringing its total to a sequel demanding $50.2 million.
