The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’s momentum has not wavered, as the Peter Jackson directed epic remained atop the box office throne for a third straight week, taking in an estimated $32.9 million.
Headlined by Martin Freeman as unwitting hero Bilbo Baggins, The Hobbit has made $222.7 million domestically. Rounding out the top five, in descending order, is Quentin Tarantino’s spaghetti Western homage Django Unchained (#2, $30.7 million), Les Miserables (#3, $28 million), the Billy Crystal/Bette Midler comedy Parental Guidance (#4, $14.8 million), and the disappointing Tom Cruise action mystery Jack Reacher. Budgeted at $60 million, Jack Reacher has made a little over $44 million in its two weeks of release.
