411 Box Office Report: The Hobbit Threepeats As Box Office Champion
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.30.2012

There's no stopping a hobbit on a mission. Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey spent a third consecutive week on top of the box office this weekend. The first film in the new trilogy brought in $32.9 million for the weekend, a mere 11% drop from last week, to hold onto the box office crown. The film has now grossed $222.7 million domestically and $622.7 million worldwide, which puts it at #8 for the year in domestic gross and #10 in terms of worldwide gross after just three weeks. The film's budget is not known.

While it didn't open at #1, Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained is doing just fine. Following a Christmas Day opening on Tuesday, the film brought in $30.7 million over the three-day weekend for the #2 spot. The movie averaged $10,195 from the 3,010 theaters it opened in and has now reached a domestic total of $64 million. The film had a budget of $100 million.

Coming in at #3 was Les Miserables. The film, which like Django opened on Tuesday, brought in $28 million over the three-day weekend, averaging $9,981 from 2,808 theaters. The film has a total domestic gross of $67.5 million and a worldwide gross of $116.2 million from a budget of $61 million.

Parental Guidance opened at #4 with $14.8 million. The Billy Crystal/Bette Midler comedy, which also opened on Tuesday, averaged $4,396 from the 3,367 theaters it played in over the weekend. While the film appeared to be soft on Christmas day it has rebounded nicely; it has a total gross so far of $29.6 million domestically and $36.4 million worldwide from a budget of $25 million.

Jack Reacher fell three spots to make way for the new releases. Tom Cruise's action thriller brought in $14 million for the weekend, equating to a second-weekend drop of just 10%; considering the holiday weekend that is about average. The movie has now grossed $44.7 million domestically and $22.5 million worldwide, from a budget of $60 million.

Judd Apatow's This is 40 was down three spots to #6 with $13.2 million. The sorta-sequel to Knocked Up, which starred Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, actually rose 14% from last weekend's opening gross. The comedy has a total gross of $37.1 million; it had a budget of $35 million.

Lincoln fell two spots, finishing at #7 in its eighth week with $7.5 million. The Steven Spielberg-directed historical biopic has now brought in $132 million on a $65 million budget.

The Guilt Trip was also down two spots in its second weekend, finishing at #8 with $6.7 million. The Seth Rogen/Barbra Streisand road trip comedy jumped a solid 24% from last weekend's opening. It has a total of $21.1 million from a budget of $40 million.

The 3D re-release of Monsters, Inc. fell two rungs to #9 with $6.4 million in its second week. The film saw a 33% jump, and has now grossed a total of $274.4 million including its initial 2D run in 2001 and $543.9 million worldwide on a budget of $115 million.

DreamWorks Animation's Rise of the Guardians finally fell to Earth, down six spots to #10 in its sixth week. The animated adventure drew $4.9 million and has now grossed $90.2 million domestically and $255.4 million worldwide; the budget was $145 million.

The weekend box office tally was $183.2 million, up 18% from last year's $154.8 million gross that was led by Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol's $29.4 million. The box office finished out at $10.79 billion for the year, up 6% from last year's total and a new record. The previous record was 2009, which hit $10.595 billion thanks to Avatar and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

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.
