I saw that The Hobbit was number one at the box office for the third straight week, earning $32.9 million, bringing its totals to $222.7 million domestically and $600 million worldwide.
As I have said before, I do believe this film has “legs” and that word of mouth ultimately beats out mixed reviews. I believe it will continue to do well at the box office in the coming weeks, even when it drops from first place. A bomb, it isn’t, in spite of what some people seem to think.
Runners-up were Django Unchained, $30.7 million, Les Miserables, $28 million, Parental Guidance, $14.8 million and Jack Reacher, $14 million.
In honor of the occasion, my two Thorin videos (I really need to make a new one–)
At any rate, it’s good news with which to bid farewell to the old year and welcome the new.
Happy New Year’s Eve/New Year, everyone!!
