Box Office: The Hobbit continues to lead as 2015 begins

The first weekend of the new year continued the strong holiday showing at the box office with many returning movies holding up well and a low-key horror sequel faring better than some expected, while Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (New Line/WB) followed in the path of its previous installment by remaining in first place for a third weekend in a row. It grossed an estimated $21.9 million this weekend, down 46% in its third weekend, and it’s grossed $220.8 million so far domestically, making it the twelfth movie of 2014 to gross more than $200 million.

Box Office: Hobbit holds off against Unbroken and Into The Woods

Despite the competition opening on Christmas Day which put it into third place behind two of those new movies, Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (New Line/WB) still managed to win the weekend with an estimated $41 million, down 24% from its opening weekend. It has grossed $168.1 million domestically and is well on its way to joining the $200 million club this year. It brought in an additional $8 million in domestic IMAX theaters over the four-day Christmas holiday including Thursday, bringing its domestic IMAX gross to $25 million. Internationally, “The Battle of the Five Armies” has reached $405.1 million for a worldwide total of $573.6 million.
