the-hobbit-number-one-weekend-box-office-jack-reacher-this-is-40

Tom Cruise may be taller than a hobbit - not by much, mind you - but this weekend, our friends from Middle Earth towered above the A-list star…in the weekend box office!

After having the largest-ever December debut, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey continued strong for the second time, making an estimated $36.7 million between Friday and Sunday!

And THAT, friends, brings their domestic total to $150 million!

Jack Reacher, meanwhile, came in second with only $15.6 million…and Paul Rudd's This Is 40 followed close by with $12 million, making it the smallest-ever Judd Apatow-directed debut!

YEESH!

But honestly, what could they have expected?

Peter Jackson's adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien is a STAPLE for the holiday season, after all!

Ch-ch-check out the rest of the box office top ten…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

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

Lord Of The Rings Theme Park On Its Way?

Filed under: DisneyOrlando Bloom

There’s going to be a lot of pressure for the actor playing Orlando Bloom’s character to make him look good.

After the success of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, it appears that Universal is looking into the possibility of creating a Lord of the Rings themed amusement park.

Here’s the post, which is rumored to be from Universal, that’s been making its way around competitor Disney's forums:

Imagine if you will a world unlike any you've ever visited before: it's Middle Earth, the ancient and beautiful land forged by J.R.R. Tolkien as the backdrop for his two most well known creations, Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Walk as a human among dwarves, elves, orcs and hobbits — all faithfully recreated and portrayed in the spirit of the original characters as they appeared in both the books and the movies. In this land you'll experience one-of-a-kind rides and attractions that bring to life some of the most memorable experiences of Tolkien's world including Bilbo's hobbit hole, the fortress at Isengard (before it was destroyed) and even the dark world of Mordor — including the terrifying volcanic Mount Doom.

Would U like to see a Lord Of The Rings themed amusement park?
