Out with the old, in with the new? Not according to the final box office tally of 2013, where once again repeat business was the name of the game!
The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug won its third consecutive weekend with a dragon-sized haul of $29.9 million!
Not far behind with $28.8 mil was Disney's megahit Frozen, still surprisingly hot after six weeks!
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and American Hustle kept newcomer The Wolf Of Wall Street out of the top four.
The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty and 47 Ronin barely cracked the top ten with respective 7th and 9th place finishes.
But that meant bad news for Justin Bieber whose new movie Believe continued to struggle, earning only $2 million all weekend.
The good news is that 2013 is was an even better year for the box office than 2012. By the end of December 31st, Hollywood will have grossed around $10.9 BILLION!
That's good for everyone! Like they say, a rising tide lifts all barrels full of dwarves! At least, that's what the adage will be if The Hobbit keeps winning the box office!
