BOX OFFICE: THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG Set To Be #1 For Third Week In A Row

While Disney's Frozen continues to perform well at the North American box office (beating The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug to #1 yesterday), the Peter Jackson helmed sequel is set to retain the top spot for the third straight weekend. Hit the jump for further details!


Amazingly, Frozen is set to have the second best weekend gross of all-time for a film in its sixth week of release, after edging past The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug yesterday to take the #1 spot at the North American box office. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie took $10.3 million for an estimated three day total of over $28 million. That gives the Disney animated movie a domestic cume of $229.8 million, although Peter Jackson's follow-up to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey took $10.1 million on Friday for a weekend total of upwards of $30 million. The sequel passed $500 million worldwide on Thursday, while 47 Ronin continues to struggle as analysts suggest a loss of $175 million for Universal. What did you guys watch this weekend?
