Propelled by fabulous word of mouth, Disney’s animated feature “Frozen” continued hot ticket sales with $15.1 million.

“The Wolf of Wall Street,” directed by Martin Scorsese, was third with $9 million. The film runs two hours and 59 minutes, which limits it box office potential by about 20%. Newcomer “The Legend of Hercules” finished a disappointing fourth with $8.6 million.
