With all the hype surrounding the release of "Les Misérables" on Christmas day, many movie fans expected the Tom Hooper musical to cruise to the top spot at the box office this weekend. But "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" upset the apple cart, earning its third box office title in a row with an estimated $32.9 million according to Film.com.

That's not to say that "Les Misérables" was a disappointment, as Hugh Jackman and company finished with a solid $28 million for the weekend. But that amount still left it behind both "The Hobbit" and Quentin Tarantino's bloodsoaked revenge epic "Django Unchained," which brought in $30.7 million.

For a full rundown of the holiday box office, including figures for "Jack Reacher" and "Parental Guidance," head to Film.com. »
