Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" held onto the top spot for the third weekend in a row at the U.S. domestic box-office, holding steady against key newcomers "Django Unchained" and "Les Miserables" which still pulled in impressive numbers.
Dropping just 11% from last weekend, "The Hobbit" took an estimated $32.9 million which gives it a total thus far of $222.7 million.
Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" scored an estimated $30.7 million in its first weekend and, with its mid-week opening numbers added, already has grossed around $64 million. That puts it well ahead of "Inglourious Basterds" at the same point in time a few years ago with 'Django' likely to become Qt's highest-grossing movie.
"Les Miserables" came in third with $28 million, giving it a six-day total thus far of $67.5 million. The film is expected to double that by the end of its run.
