'Hobbit' Passes $200 Million, 'Django,' 'Les Mis' Still Strong
The Hobbit held the top spot at the beginning of the final weekend of 2012, though Django Unchained and Les Miserables weren't far behind. The first in a planned Lord of the Rings prequel trilogy earned an estimated $10.73 million on Friday, which was actually up seven percent from the same day last week. That pushed its total past $200 million, making it the 11th 2012 movie to reach that level. That ties 2007 for most titles with over $200 million. For the three-day weekend, The Hobbit should wind up with over $30 million. After losing to Les Miserables in its first three days, Django Unchained finally inched past the musical on Friday; the Quentin Tarantino revenge western added $9.67 million for a four-day total of $43 million. That's about on par with Inglourious Basterds's grosses through the same point, and that movie's $120.5 million total looks like a nice target for Django. The movie should wind up between $27 and $30 million for the weekend.
