It was believed that "The Hobbit," "Django Unchained" and "Les Miserables" would battle for first place at the domestic box office this weekend, But "Texas Chainsaw 3D" exceeded expectations by grossing $23 million, which was enough to beat all of its competition. The film, which is a sequel to Tobe Hooper 1974 original, cost only $20 million to make, but has a lousy 21% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. A sequel is already being planned. "Django Unchained" ended up in second place with $20.1 million, breaking the $100 million mark domestically. It's currently on track to become the highest-grossing Quentin Tarantino film. "Inglourious Basterds" holds that record with $120 million. "The Hobbit" took third place by grossing another $17.5 million. It has now earned $820 million worldwide. "Les Miserables" took fourth with $16.1 million, bringing its domestic total past the $100 million mark, the fastest for any musical. As expected, Matt Damon's "Promised Land" continued to struggle as it expanded nationwide. »
