"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" remains on top as the No. 1 movie in America with $36.7 million. Sure, the Peter Jackson movie based on J.R.R. Tolkien's novel dropped a steep 57 percent, but still held the crown.
Meanwhile, low expectations for Tom Cruise's "Jack Reacher" yielded a modest $15.6 million opening. Based on Lee Child's "One Shot," the Paramount film needed a strong word of mouth to keep it rolling past the Holidays.
