2012 saw Marvel's The Avengers ($1.5B), The Dark Knight Rises ($1.08B), and Skyfall ($1.03B) all surpassing the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office. And now it looks like we can add a fourth title to that list: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Director Peter Jackson's return to Middle-earth has been going strong since its December 14th debut, and has grossed $921 million worldwide so far, with $288.7M domestically and $632.2M internationally. With several more weeks in theaters and a February 22nd debut in China, The Hobbit will likely become the 15th film to ever grosss over $1B. The film is currently the 23rd highest grossing movie of all time, which is obviously great news for Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema. The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug is scheduled to be released December 13th this year, while There And Back Again will hit theaters June 18th, 2014. Follow @PaulRomCBM !function(d, »
