The Hobbit still ruling weekend box office

Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is still holding on strong to its number one spot in the box office bringing in an additional $32.9 million this weekend — the film has grossed a whopping $222.7 million after three weeks in theaters. Tribute.ca users are giving it 3.9 out of a possible 5 stars. The next three spots are being taken over by debuts that were all released on Christmas day. The spaghetti western Django Unchained, which stars Jamie Foxx as a rescued slave who tries to save his wife (Kerry Washington) from her captor (Leonardo DiCaprio), rides in at second place with $30.7 million and a 4.1 star rating. Not too far behind is the highly-anticipated film adaptation of Les Misérables, which comes in third with $28 million. It’s a very popular pick with Tribute.ca users, who are giving it an impressive 4.7 stars. Bringing a little humor to the weekend box office is the fourth place film, Parental Guidance. Starring veteran actors Billy Crystal and Bette Midler as grandparents pinned with the task of babysitting their rowdy grandkids, the comedy earned $14.8 million and 4.4 stars. Rounding out the top five is the Tom Cruise thriller Jack Reacher. It dropped three spots from last week but still raked in $14 million and is a hit with Tribute.ca users, who are giving it 4.1 stars.

    The Hobbit is the best movie of the year for sure! Awesome! Dark Knight Rises and Avengers suck!

    Did you get all that from your mom, Trevor? You must have, since it’s the exact same thing she said during our pillow talk after all that coitis. At least she was right about The Hobbit.
