Box Office Results: The Hobbit Back at No.1 By Barely Outpointing Django Unchained and Surpassing the $600 Million Dollar Mark




The Hobbit Back at No. 1 after out dueling Django Unchained. Les Miserables finished in the No. 3 spot.



box-office1The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey is showing its might by climbing back into the top spot at the box office. The Peter Jackson movie has even hit a couple of mile stones this weekend to boot. It surpassed the $600 million dollar mark world wide and the $200 million dollar mark domestically. This weekend the first installment of the latest Middle Earth trilogy hauled in a strong $31.5 million dollars, just out pointing the No. 2 movie.


Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained fought its way past Les Mis to claim the No. 2 spot and even pushed The Hobbit to the brink. The Weinstein Company is thrilled by this, telling Deadline’s Nikki Finke on Saturday, ”We are having a really big day on Django! From what I can tell, it looks like we will be very close to Hobbit.” Boy, was that exec right on the money. As it looks right now, Django Unchained will finish a mere Half a million dollars behind The Hobbit this weekend, pulling in $31 million dollars.


Les Miserables also had a strong weekend. The Tom Hooper musical did $27.4 million dollars and has made more money than Django Unchained on the whole. The film has cumulated $66.8 million dollars to Django Unchained’s $64 million dollars. And both films surpassed $100 million dollars world wide.


To be honest, all three films won the Holiday Box Office. Warner Bros is happy with The Hobbits take, Weinstein is over the moon for Django, and Les Miserables surpassed some of Universal’s most bullish projections. The film industry won. It’s been a good month.
