Movies and Women: Please join an Audience

The success of “Catching Fire” and “Frozen” should put to rest the assumption that audiences don’t want to see female-centric movies, especially female-led action-adventure stories, an assumption that is often trotted out as a defense of gender imbalance on the screen. In a thematic alignment with extreme winter weather in much of the United States, the No. 1 movie was “Frozen” (Walt Disney Studios), which took in about $31.6 million, for a two-week total of $134.3 million. Second place, according to Rentrak, which compiles box-office data, went to “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” (Lionsgate), which sold about $27 million in tickets, for a three-week domestic total of $336.7 million.Catching-Fire
