Tom Cruise And Judd Apatow Tackled By The Hobbit In The Weekend Box Office!

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!!!

The Hobbit Has The LARGEST-EVER December Domestic Box Office Debut!

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness BlitzBookz

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!

The Hobbit Breaks Midnight Records!

Filed under: Film FlickersHarry PotterTwilightBookz

Hobbit Midnight Screening Record

12 million at 12 o'clock has a pretty nice ring to it.

But The Hobbit went for the baker's dozen, grossing a record-breaking $13 million at its midnight screenings Thursday night!

This pales in comparison to the midnight grosses of Harry Potter or Twilight, but it's not bad for a book that was written 75 years ago!

Tolkien fans around the country took An Unexpected Journey, setting it on the path to breaking the December opening weekend record as well.

Thirteen million marks the most a December midnight release has ever made, only topping the previous record by The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King.

So Peter Jackson, we're happy and sad for you!

Kate Middleton Too Sick To Smoke Pipe Weed With The Hobbit! NOT Going To Royal Screening!

Aww poor, poor Kate Middleton!

After all the stress and devastation Prince William's wife has been through over the past week, taking a trip to Middle Earth to visit everyone's favorite little people (sorry Snow White dwarves!) would have been a magical way to unwind…

But it seems that Kate's hyperemesis gravidarum AKA reallly horrible morning sickness is back with a vengeance, thus the Duchess has decided to NOT attend London's Hobbit premiere on Wednesday.

A rep for the couple explains:

Why Is The Hobbit Making Film Goers Physically Ill?!?!

Filed under: Film FlickersBookz

And it is NOT because of the plot!

Or at least we are like 89% positive that it isn't because of the plot.

Some cinema lovers were granted a sneak peek at the new and hopeful December blockbuster, The Hobbit, but many left with mixed, slightly sick feelings afterwards. No, LITERALLY!

According to reports, the film's 48-frames-per-second tech triggered nausea in more than one moviegoer!

Here was how some described feeling after seeing the movie:
