BOX OFFICE: THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY Expected To Cross $1B Mark By March

We have an update on the box office gross for Peter Jackson's first Hobbit film, and it looks like An Unexpected Journey will become the 15th movie to surpass the $1 billion by March. Hit the jump for full details.



2012 saw Marvel's The Avengers ($1.5B), The Dark Knight Rises ($1.08B), and Skyfall ($1.03B) all surpassing the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office. And now it looks like we can add a fourth title to that list: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Director Peter Jackson's return to Middle-earth has been going strong since its December 14th debut, and has grossed $921 million worldwide so far, with $288.7M domestically and $632.2M internationally. With several more weeks in theaters and a February 22nd debut in China, The Hobbit will likely become the 15th film to ever grosss over $1B. The film is currently the 23rd highest grossing movie of all time, which is obviously great news for Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema. The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug is scheduled to be released December 13th this year, while There And Back Again will hit theaters June 18th, 2014.
