It was a Merry Christmas indeed for the film industry!!

Two of the season's blockbusters— Les Misérables and Django Unchained— got a BIG visit from Santa Claus this year with HUGE earnings from yesterday's movie theaters.

Not only did Les Miz recieve the #1 advance ticket sales of all Christmas releases EVER, but the musical also earned the top spot at the box office with total grosses at approximately $18 million.

A very different kind of film, Quentin Tarantino's gory Django Unchained, trailed close behind with earnings of approximately $15 million yesterday.

One studio exec explained the reasoning behind the films' success, sharing:

“Christmas Day has very unique play patterns by genre, region of the country, ethnicity, and target demo. You won’t really know where films are headed until Friday. But that’s a fantastic number for Les Miz.”

Hmm, inneresting…

The controversy revolving around these films probably lent a hand to their premiere success. Who wouldn't want to see Leonardo DiCaprio throwing around the n-word or the flick that gave us all a glimpse of Anne Hathaway's va-jay-jay!! LOL.

Bring on awards season!
