"Les Miserables" and "Django Unchained" Break Christmas Day Box Office Records

Posted: December 26th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Les Miserables" and "Django Unchained" Break Christmas Day Box Office RecordsSubmit Comment
The domestic box office results for Christmas Day have now been calculated, showing that "Les Miserables" grossed $18 million on just Tuesday. The film stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway, and has a 73% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.

The film set the record for the highest opening day for a musical, and the second highest Christmas Day opening of all time, behind "Sherlock Holmes," which earned $24.6 million back in 2009.

Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" took second place at the box office with $15 million, breaking the record for the biggest Christmas Day opening for an R-rated film, easily surpassing the $10 million earned by "Ali" in 2002. The movie, which has a 89% fresh rating, also took the third highest Christmas Day opening, behind "Sherlock Holmes" and "Les Miserables."

Both "Les Miserables" and "Django Unchained" are award contenders, and were able to knock "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" from its top spot.

Christmas Day Box Office Results:

1. Les Miserables - $18,111,665
2. Django Unchained - $15,011,121
3. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - $11,300,000
4. Parental Guidance - $6,317,559
5. Jack Reacher - $5,301,000
6. This Is 40 - $4,369,495
7. The Guilt Trip - $2,606,000
8. Lincoln - $2,319,971
9. Monsters, Inc 3D - $1,456,311
10. Life of Pi - $1,307,211

Revenge? Nah. QT would never use the same theme in more than one movie. We all know that, right?

Wasn't Jackie Brown his only movie ignoring that theme?or did it have some revenge?I don't remember..

No, Jackie Brown was revenge themed too, as noticed by this reviewer:

Quentin Tarantino has made another movie. Or, rather, Quentin Tarantino has made the same movie again.

As in both "Kill Bill" movies, "Inglourious Basterds" and "Jackie Brown," revenge drives "Django Unchained," in which a courtly outlaw (Christoph Waltz) and a runaway slave named Django (Jamie Foxx) search for the slave's wife. Their quest leads to a plantation overseen by a gleeful maniac (Leonardo DiCaprio), whose role has "best supporting actor nominee" written all over it.

And if that's not enough

Jackie Brown’s revenge plot is born more out of necessity than bloodlust - the authorities are going to throw her in jail if she doesn’t help them catch gun runner Ordell; meanwhile, Ordell wants to kill her before she can rat him out. Jackie manages to double-cross both parties with a brilliant plan that ends with Ordell shot by ATF agents and her holding onto his secret retirement fund of $500,000. It's the only of his films where the protagonist doesn't kill anyone.

QT's kinda like that barfly chick who can tie cherries into puppies or some sh*t. Really good at some narrow, limited skill, and nothing more.

Make a comedy, or a sci-fi actioner, QT. Do something fresh and new, you talented hack.

I must admit I did enjoy kill bill vol 1...it was a brainless action movie.vol 2 solved my insomnia problem.

Actually Tarantino's next movie should be "Minkowski and the Tall Man are Useless, Inbred, Crackers."
