The Hobbit Wins Opening Weekend Box Office

Box Office: The Hobbit Sets a December Record

Looks like Middle-earth has a lot of fans: Peter Jackson's epic adaptation The Hobbit earned $84.8 million in its opening weekend, setting a new record for the best December opening weekend. It also set a record for one-day opening, reaping $34.5 million on Friday and besting the previous record, coincidentally held by 2003's Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. In a steep drop-off, Rise of the Guardians came in second with $7.4 million, followed by Lincoln with $7.2 million. Last week's champ, Skyfall, slipped to fourth with $7 million, followed by Life of Pi with $5.4 million.
