‘The Hobbit’ Ventures Its Way To The Top


After earning an astounding 31 million on its opening day, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has met the expectations of many by dominating the box office this past weekend with a current estimated total of 73+ million. Disappointingly, this is a dip in performance for the franchise seeing as how The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey made about 10 million more in its opening weekend last year. Far behind it, but in second place on this week’s top ten comes last week’s highest selling film, Frozen, which had earned about 22 million. The latest installment to the long-running Madea series, A Madea Christmas made its debut this weekend as well, with about 16 million made in opening sales, with many more to follow once Christmas comes closer in the coming days.
