The epic conclusion to Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy – and his Middle-earth series – The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has become just the second film of 2014 to cross $800 million at the global box office, with the fantasy epic pushing its global haul to $803.1 million this past weekend.

The Battle of the Five Armies remains the lowest-grossing instalment of the Middle-earth franchise behind The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring ($869.3 million), and is the second-biggest movie of last year after Transformers: Age of Extinction, which sits on $1.087 billion.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies crosses the $700 million mark worldwide

4 January 2015 11:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has become the eighth movie of 2014 to cross $700 million at the global box office, with the epic conclusion to Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy pushing its worldwide haul to $722.9 million this weekend.

The Battle of the Five Armies is now the fifth-highest grossing movie of last year, and looks like it should go on to overtake X-Men: Days of Future Past ($746 million), Maleficent ($757.8 million) and Guardians of the Galaxy ($772.6 million), which would leave it trailing only Transformers: Age of Extinction, which pulled in $1.087 billion.

In terms of Jackson’s Middle-earth saga, the final Hobbit movie remains in sixth place and will need to reach $870 million if it is to overtake The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, which earned $869.3 million back in 2001.
