The surprise is just how many showed up opening weekend!

The film not only swallowed the competition like an enormous dragon hoarding gold — it even beat its own franchise record!

Though the final installment was expected to make only $70 million over its first five days, the holiday hit brought in $90.6!

That's more than either An Unexpected Journey ($84.6 mil) or The Desolation of Smaug ($73.6 mil) pulled in for their openings — though to be fair, Five Armies did have the advantage of a long weekend, opening on a Wednesday.

The final Hobbit was NOT able to dethrone The Return Of The King however; the final Lord Of The Rings film earned $124 million in its first five days.
