411 Box Office Report: The Hobbit Rules For a Second Week at #1
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.23.2012

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey found itself on top of the box office with ease for a second week. The Peter Jackson-directed fantasy epic maintained its #1 ranking this weekend with a $36.7 million take. That equates to a 57% drop, which is about right for a major "event film" with the kind of opening that it did. The film has now grossed $149.9 million domestically and $433.9 million worldwide. The film's budget is not known.

Coming in at #2 is Jack Reacher. Tom Cruise's action drama opened with $15.6 million for the weekend, which would be considered a bit on the low side if not for the extended weekend likely taking some business from the initial three-day take. The film averaged $4,654 from the 3,352 theaters it opened in and added $2.5 million overseas for a total first-weekend take of $18.1 million. The budget was $60 million.

Judd Apatow's This is 40 opened at #3 with $12 million. The sorta-sequel to Knocked Up, which starred Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, averaged $4,132 from the 2,912 theaters it opened in. The film had a budget of $35 million.

Down two spots to #4 was DreamWorks Animation's Rise of the Guardians. The animated adventure drew $5.9 million in its fifth weekend and has now grossed $79.7 million domestically and $225.6 million worldwide; the budget was $145 million.

Lincoln was also down two spots, finishing at #5 in its seventh week with $5.6 million. The Steven Spielberg-directed historical biopic has now brought in $116.8 million on a $65 million budget.

The Guilt Trip disappointed, opening flat at #6 with $5.4 million. The Seth Rogen/Barbra Streisand road trip comedy was hampered by its opening earlier in the week and averaged just $2,217 from 2,431 theaters. The film has a total since Wednesday of $7.4 million from a budget of $40 million.

The 3D re-release of Monsters, Inc. opened at #7 with $5 million. It too opened on Tuesday and thus suffered for the weekend take, averaging $1,925 from 2,618 theaters. The film has grossed a total of $262.4 million including its initial 2D run in 2001 and $531.9 million worldwide on a budget of $115 million.

Skyfall was down four spots in its seventh weekend, finishing at #8 with $4.7 million. The latest in the Bond franchise has a domestic total to $280 million and a worldwide total of $974.3 million. The film had a budget of $200 million.

Life of Pi also fell four spots, down to #9 in its fifth week with $3.8 million. The Ang Lee-directed film has now grossed $76.2 million domestically and $235.8 million worldwide with a budget of $120 million.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 dropped four spots to close out the top 10 in its sixth weekend. The vampire/werewolf action/romance brought in $2.6 million and has now grossed $281.6 million domestically and $794.8 million worldwide on a $120 million budget.

The weekend box office tally was $110.4 million, down 14% from last year's $128.1 million gross that was led by Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol's $29.6 million.

Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.
