There is nothing dwarf-like at all about the success of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which debuts with $85 million this weekend across North America in 4,045 theatres for Warner Bros. The Peter Jackson Fantasy Flick also sets a Box Office record for highest December weekend and biggest December opening ever (Friday – $37.5 million) and also sets a record for highest opening ever in December.
Last week’s Champ Skyfall slips to second this weekend with $7.1 million, neck-in-neck with Rise of the Guardian earning $7.0 million in third.
Disney‘s Lincoln continues to perform impeccably in fourth with $6.7 million, now it its sixth week of release. The Historical Drama no doubt got a boost from Thursday’s Golden Globe nomination announcements, where it led the way a smashing seven nominations.
Not much particularly earth-shattering on the bottom end of this weekend’s Top Ten as Wreck-It Ralph lands in seventh with $3.2 million for Disney, while Playing for Keeps earns $3 million in eighth. TIFF 2012 People’s Choice Winner Silver Linings Playbook, which received three Golden Globe nominations earlier this week, rounds things out with $2.0 million.
Unbelieveable!Skyfall, in its fifth week of release, climbs to the top of the Box Office this weekend, usurping the three-week reign of The Twlight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Earning $10.8 million on a tepid weekend at the theatres, the latest in the James Bond Franchise has made over $261 million now domestically for Sony Pictures.
Paramount Pictures’ Rise of the Guardian rises to second spot this weekend earning $10.4 million in its third week of release, just ahead of Breaking Dawn – Part 2, which slips to third spot in this its fourth week in theatres with $8.9 million this weekend, closing-in on the $300 million mark domestically for Summit Entertainment/eOne Films.
Lincoln still continues to go strong in fourth spot for Disney with $8.8 million, with tons of Oscar buzz driving Moviegoers to the theatres to see dual Oscar Winners respectively, Sally Field and Daniel Day-Lewis.
This weekend’s sole debut in the Top Ten comes from Playing for Keeps, the Rom-Com starring Gerard Butler from FilmDistrict/VVS Films, earning $6.1 million from 2,837 theatres. Critics unfortunately weren’t charmed, tallying-in at 2% on Rotten Tomatoes. Fans however are responding, with the Film making the grade with a B+ via CinemaScore.
The Weinstein Co.’s Killing them Softly meanwhile, rounds out the Top Ten with $2.8 million in its second week. Reviews overall have been solid, maintaining a 76% on the Tomatometer.
