  • Box Office Top Five: Frozen Forever

    1. Frozen, $20.7 million weekend (last week: no. 2; $297.8 million cumulative) Can Disney (which owns the good ship Grantland) keep Frozen in theaters until a Despicable Me 3 or another Pixar flick rolls into town?

    Roger Goodell is an idiot. Who in their right mind would schedule the 48th Super Bowl on the same day as the 10th annual Puppy Bowl? Only a foolish person, especially when considering what Animal Planet has in store this year. The NFL and Fox don’t stand a chance. It’s almost as if the organizers […]
