Warner Bros. Pictures' The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey fended off newcomers Django Unchained and Les Misérables to top the box office for a second weekend. Peter Jackson's first part in the trilogy based on J. R. R. Tolkien's beloved work, posted $10.7 million and looks to end off the weekend with around $33-34 million, taking the film's domestic total past $220 million. In second, Weinstein Co's Django Unchained under the direction of Quentin Tarantino, barely held off Les Misérables with $9.7 million vs. $9.4 million. Frontlined by Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Don Jonson, Kurt Russell, Keri Washington and Samuel L. Jackson, the western revenge actioner will most likely lose its position to Les Mis come Sunday weekend estimates. Despite some putting Django ahead when the weekend's done, I'm backing Les Mis to charm the holiday crowd more with $29 million over Django's $28.5 million. Both films opened on Christmas Day. »
