BOX OFFICE: Peter Jackson's THE HOBBIT Finale Crosses $800 Million

Only one 2014 film has made more money than The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies and that would be Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction. Though, I'm sure Peter Jackson doesn't mind as his film has crossed $800M this weekend.


The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies added $9.8 million at the overseas box office this weekend. Its international total now stands at $558 million and its global total is $803.1 million. The second highest grossing film of 2014 still has some fight left in but won't catch Michael Bay's billion dollar monster Transformers: Age Of Extinction. I'm sure director Peter Jackson is thrilled his final installment in the Middle-earth trilogy has crossed $800 million benchmark, but it is underperforming the two previous films in the series.  2013's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug earned $960.4 million and 2012's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey grossed over a billion.

For those of you interested in the domestic box office, American Sniper, which stars Bradley Cooper ("Guardians Of The Galaxy"), smoked the competition with $88 million and Blackhat, which stars Chris Hemsworth ("Avengers: Age Of Ultron"), couldn't even crack the top ten in its debut weekend.

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town. Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain. As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.
