(Newser) – Anyone else detecting a theme to the weekend? Disney's Frozen has claimed the box office crown, reeling in $20.7 million. That was enough to put Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones in the No. 2 slot with $18.2 million; The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was in third. The AP notes that ticket sales were probably off because of—you guessed it—that whole "polar vortex" thing.

Given the level of imagination with which Hollywood generally approaches these things, I expect by this December we will be seeing, "Frozen and Furious", "Frosty with a Chance of Meatballs", "Siberian Hunger Games", and "Iron Man vs. The Abominable Snowman" all in theaters. They will all bomb, of course, and numerous studio executives will moan about how terrible a business movies have become, because audiences are just so darn unpredictable. There will be absolutely no way to make the business work except by raising ticket prices.

It's only fitting that Disney's Frozen leads the way during this "polar vortex" time.
