BOX OFFICE: THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY To Surpass $300M Domestically Today
The latest box office update for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey confirms that the Peter Jackson-directed fantasy epic will cross the $300M domestic mark today, becoming the fifth film of 2012 to do so.
Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has been a big hit at the box office despite less than rave reviews, and the latest update on the first of a new Middle-earth trilogy comes from ERC Box Office. The film will today become the fifth movie of 2012 to surpass the $300 million mark domestically, joining Marvel's The Avengers ($623M), The Dark Knight Rises ($448M), The Hunger Games ($408M) and Skyfall ($303M). The Hobbit has grossed nearly $960M worldwide, and with a China release confirmed for later this week, crossing the $1 billion mark is now a given. This should be great news for Warner Bros., as the studio will be releasing The Desolation Of Smaug on December 13th this year and There And Back Again on July 18th, 2014.
