I guess you really can’t stop the Peter Jackson power train of The Hobbit. The film remained at the top of the Box Office for it’s third straight week in a row, by bringing in another $21.9million. This brings it’s Worldwide Total to be over $700million and counting. I personally thought the film was pretty subpar, but a lot of others are obviously enjoying it. You can listen to more of my thoughts on the latest Gourmet Scum Radio episode HERE.
The only movie that premiered this past weekend was The Woman In Black 2: Angel of Death, which fared very well with $15.1million. Given that the studio bought the film for only $1million dollars, I’d say we’ll be seeing another sequel in the near future. You can check out the rest of the Top Ten below!
1. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies $21.9 million
2. Into the Woods $19.1 million
3. Unbroken $18.4 million
4. The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death $15.1 million
5. Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb $14.5 million
6. Annie $11.4 million
7. The Imitation Game $8.1 million
8. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 $7.7 million
9. The Gambler $6.3 million
10. Big Hero 6 $4.8 million
Next week we see the return of Bryan Mills, as Liam Neeson comes back to the silver screen in Taken 3. I’m sure it’s going to shake things up and finally dethrone The Hobbit, especially since this film touts to be the last of the series. What will happen for sure? We’ll see you on the next edition of Weekend Roundup and let you know what happens!
