(Newser) – Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey pulled in $32.9 million this week to rule the box-office roost for a third consecutive week, relegating Quentin Tarantino's controversial Django Unchained to the No. 2 spot, with $30.7 million. Les Miserables was close by in third place, with $28 million. And Hollywood looks set to end the year with a record-breaking bang, notes the Hollywood Reporter: Revenues for 2012 are set to hit $10.8 billion tomorrow, up 5.8% over last year and topping the previous record of $10.6 billion in 2009.

saw it yesterday. I was not impressed, it was no where near Lord Of The Rings caliber. they could have easily shaved 60-75 minutes off it & made it much more interesting.

After getting almost nauseous from all of the SMOKING in the movie, we walked out after the first hour and got our money back! ALL SMOKING OUT OF THE MOVIES, NOW!

and again Hollywood's not mentioning the true adjusted figures..."adjusted for ticket prices and inflation" this movie is doing much worse than the first three in the series...by a lot.
