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!!!

Sam Worthington's Disorderly Conduct Charge Dropped, Scary Mugshot Revealed!

Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!

Eek! Even though it's low quality, the Avatar star's jailhouse avatar is frightening!

The last time we laid eyes on Sam Worthington, he had full locks of furry goodness on his head AND his chest!

Now?! Other than the paintbrush looking patch on his chinny-chin-chin, those hair follicles have been all but terminated!! Fred Durst, anyone??

We wonder if they were damaged when he was pepper sprayed in Hotlanta Saturday?!

Maybe his barber gave him a bad cut this weekend and that's why he was angry before arriving at Vortex!!

Either way, reports are surfacing that Sam's hairy situation may be at an end. Apparently witnesses failed to appear in court today and all charges against the 36-year-old Australian actor have been dropped.

We'd tell him to take a chill pill, but what if a side-effect is baldness?

Sam Worthington Was ARRESTED For Fighting Outside Atlanta Club!

Filed under: Legal MattersParty Poppin'

Sam Worthington got a little feisty outside a club in Atlanta, Georgia over the weekend and his eyes have paid the piper.

The Australian actor was PEPPER SPRAYED by a doorman at Vortex and placed in handcuffs until cops arrived to charge him with disorderly conduct.

Worthington got so angry after he was denied entry into the establishment (because he was already too drunk and didn't have proper ID), that he pushed

Filed under: Film Flickers

When you wrote and directed the two highest grossing films ever made, it's a safe bet your studio will greenlight a sequel or three!!

Titanic wrapped up neatly after Rose finally allowed her heart to go on, so we understand why James Cameron is so focused on sequels for Avatar!

The mastermind behind the brilliant movie recently revealed his intentions to make three more film on Pandora, including one prequel.

As the first three films will tell an entire story, he is forced to go a new direction for Avatar 4.

James admitted:

Peter Jackson Wants A THIRD Installment In The Hobbit Franchise!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Peter Jackson wants a third hobbit

James Cameron has Avatar and Peter Jackson has The Hobbit.

The director of the upcoming prequels to the Lord of the Rings trilogy has finished shooting the films that follow Bilbo Baggins' journey to Middle Earth, but since the second installment in the series doesn't hit theaters until December 2013, he wants to shoot MORE footage!

But obviously he can't go ahead and make another movie since there are no more books left to adapt — or can he?

Jackson says he's talking to the studio about potentially breaking up the second Hobbit movie into TWO parts. That's right. He wants to split one book into THREE movies!

That's only more money for

Disney Is Now In The Flying Secret Dragons Business

Filed under: Film FlickersDisney

disney dragons

WE WANT IN!

They tried to keep it a secret, buuuuuut you can't really hide a flying dragon!

People have seen flying fire-breathing dragons all around Shafter's Minter Field in Bakersfield, CA all week!

After tons witnessed 15 foot "realistic" dragons cruising hundreds of feet in the air, Disney fessed up and admitted the dragons belong to Daenerys Targaryen them.

A spokeswoman for the mouse confirmed that what people around the airport saw was indeed a project of Glendale-based Walt Disney Imagineering, but rudely refused to give any deets, saying only:

"I can't really tell you much. So sorry. We're really always looking for new ways to expand the magic at Disney Parks. But we really don't have any specific comments about what you're asking me about."

UGH! But what are they for???

The talk on around the Disney blogs is the flying reptiles will be part of an Avatar show in Florida. Buuuut, there's always the chance Disney is preparing for war against Dreamworks' How To Train You Dragon touring show.

Just like we did for Cars Land, we'll just have wait to see what Magic Mickey has in store!

Passing $600 Mil Domestically, Avengers Worth Ten Times Their Weight In Gold!

Robert Downey Jr. WIth A Bag O Money - Avengers

Go ahead, put fresh batteries in your calculator, we'll wait!

Gold sells for $1.5k an ounce these days and the combined weight of The Avengers — excluding Thor's hammer — is around 2,500 pounds.

The flick literally earned 10x the cost of that in gold! Just in the United States!

This puts Avengers squarely in 3rd place all time in the domestic box office rankings, behind only Avatar — now with its own nightclub — and Titanic, which needed two releases a decade apart to own that much!!

As of now
