Please note that because of the holiday, grosses from some studios likely won't be reported today. Most grosses that have been reported are studio estimates.

Disney's Frozen continued its holiday season strength on Tuesday with an estimated $7.08 million. The New Year's Eve performance for the 3D computer animated blockbuster was down just 10 percent from Monday and was up a healthy 48 percent over last Tuesday's Christmas Eve performance. Frozen has grossed $263.09 million to date, which currently ranks the film as the sixth highest grossing release of 2013 domestically. Today the film is set to overtake the $268.49 million final gross of fellow Disney release Monsters University to move into fifth place for the year.

Warner's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug took in an estimated $5.53 million on New Year's Eve. In the process the second installment of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy surpassed the $200 million domestic mark. The Desolation of Smaug reached the milestone in 19 days and has grossed $201.53 million to date. That places the film 15 percent behind the $238.00 million 19-day take of last year's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was down 15 percent from Monday and up 5 percent over last Tuesday.

Disney's Saving Mr. Banks and Fox's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty both experienced healthy daily increases on New Year's Eve. Saving Mr. Banks was up 36 percent over Monday to take in an estimated $3.93 million for the day, while The Secret Life of Walter Mitty increased 20 percent over Monday to gross an estimated $3.35 million. Respective total grosses stand at $44.08 million for Saving Mr. Banks after twelve days of wide release and at $31.51 million for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty after one week of release.
