PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Hunger Games, hungry for more, remains on fire.

The record-setting sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the highest-grossing November release in movie history, made it two weekends in a row in the top spot by earning an estimated $74-million on its second weekend of release.

The impressive runner-up spot went to the debuting animated attraction, Frozen, which took in a robust $67-million.

Third place went to the holdover sequel, Thor: The Dark World, which totaled $11-million, while another holdover sequel, The Best Man Holiday, finished fourth with $8-million.

Two other new releases also finished in the top ten:

The action drama, Homefront, took in $7-million, good for fifth, while the holiday musical drama, Black Nativity, was eighth with $4-million.

Overall, with two big hits leading the way on an active post-Thanksgiving weekend, industry-wide totals were well above those of a year ago.
