The Lord of the Rings pulled in an estimated $12.109 million on Friday, down a scant 14.9% from the $14.233 million it earned last Friday.

Rings’ 10-day total stands at $129.276 million to rank #13 for the year so far. On the all time highest grosses list, it stands at #131.

The Friday gross suggests a five-day weekend of around $55 million, a record for the New Year’s frame. That would raise its two-week tally to a whopping $170 million plus. [More]
