The Hobbit Three-peats at Box Office
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey won its third consecutive weekend against new movies Django Unchained and Les Miserables. While the two new movies have been critical darlings, none of them are as all ages as The Hobbit so the victory doesn't come as much of a surprise. It will be interesting to see how many weekends it stays at number 1 as there really isn't any serious competition coming out for several weeks. The Hobbit dropped a tiny 11% from last weekend for a domestic take of $32.9 million for a US total of $222.7M. Not sure its international box office but the current total is $464M for a worldwide total of $686.7M. The film should easily be the 15th film to cross the $1 billion threshold.
