‘Hobbit’ making less money than first film, still poised to win weekend at box office

December 21, 2013 at 9:21 pm by MrCere  - 

moneyThere is good news and bad news for Warner Bros. and Peter Jackson at the box office this weekend. Despite the strong opening of “Anchorman 2,” projections show that “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” will be the number one movie for the second weekend in a row. Different outlets have different takes on the same story. Variety talks about “The Hobbit,” winning the weekend while Boxofficemojo features comparison charts on its front page and complete Middle-earth showdown charts inside.

The comparisons do reveal that DOS may fall well short of its predecessor which makes its run toward $1 billion world wide pretty interesting. As Variety mentions above, the film has managed to gather up $300 million world wide Meanwhile BoxOffice.com has every possible movie in its headline, now in its sixth update.
