The Hobbit Has The LARGEST-EVER December Domestic Box Office Debut!

| Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness BlitzBookz


That's right, folks!

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has beat out Avatar!

Peter Jackson's newest adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic debuted this weekend to an estimated $84.8 MILLION weekend box office, which secures it above the James Cameron sci-fi extravaganza as the largest ever domestic debut for a film released in December!

Oh, and with the $138.2 million it made overseas, the flick has made a combined $223 MILLION worldwide!

Holy SHIZ! Way to go, Gandalf!

Or perhaps we should be congratulating the much-criticized high-frame-rate format in which the film was shot, as IMAX theaters playing the film in such averaged $44,000 per screen while regular screens made $31,000!

Either way, they can only go UP from here on out!

Ch-ch-check out the full box office top ten from this weekendAFTER THE JUMP!!!

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, $84.8 million
Rise of the Guardians, $7.4 million
Lincoln, $7.2 million
Skyfall, $7 million
Life of Pi, $5.4 million
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, $5.2 million
Wreck-It Ralph, $3.3 million
Playing for Keeps, $3.2 million
Red Dawn, $2.4 million
Silver Linings Playbook, $2.1 million

    The only one that interests me is Lincoln, and it is not playing at my local theater. Will have to look up Silver Linings Playbook on IMDB to see what it is about. Sure hope they release some good movies soon, getting close to Christmas.
