The Hobbit Breaks Midnight Records!

| Filed under: Film FlickersHarry PotterTwilightBookz

Hobbit Midnight Screening Record

12 million at 12 o'clock has a pretty nice ring to it.

But The Hobbit went for the baker's dozen, grossing a record-breaking $13 million at its midnight screenings Thursday night!

This pales in comparison to the midnight grosses of Harry Potter or Twilight, but it's not bad for a book that was written 75 years ago!

Tolkien fans around the country took An Unexpected Journey, setting it on the path to breaking the December opening weekend record as well.

Thirteen million marks the most a December midnight release has ever made, only topping the previous record by The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King.

So Peter Jackson, we're happy and sad for you!

    Heck, I can't stay up that late any longer, getting older :)
    Read the books in college and liked Lord of the Rings way better than The Hobbit.

    what records exactly? many films this year had much bigger midnight takes. Like over $30mill for dark knight rises and twilight thingy.
