"The Hobbit 3" Tops Box Office Weekend, "Woman in Black 2" Lands in 4th PlaceSubmit Comment
"The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" once again took first place at the domestic box office weekend, earning an additional $22 million to bring its worldwide total to $723 million in three weeks of release. The movie has yet to open in one of the biggest markets, China, which will happen on January 23rd. It's expected that "The Hobbit 3" will easily cross the $1 billion mark.

The only new wide release of the weekend was "Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death," which landed in fourth place with $15.1 million. The original film debuted to $20.9 million back in 2012 and went on to gross $128 million worldwide. The sequel has a 26% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.

On the specialty side, "A Most Violent Year," from director JC Chandor (Margin Call), opened in four theaters in New York and Los Angeles, grossing $188,000, which is an impressive $45,000 per location. The new movie is expected to be an awards contender. It has an 89% fresh rating.

Like we didn't know the final Hobbit would take tops at the BO. Was there any other film that could do so?

A few things:

1. I'm glad as f*ck we will see no more Hobbit sh*t. Hollywood will have to finally find a way to make bang at the BO every every few years without resorting to lavish CGI spectacles as found in the Lord of the Rings films.

2. It's amazing that sh*t such as Transformers 3 and 4 and this repetitive Lord of the Rings garbage, both of which look like every other film in the respective series, can make so much at the box office without giving the audience its money's worth in the form of original, unique content.

3. I cannot believe they green lit a sequel to the Woman in Black claptrap.

Saw Hobbit and enjoyed it. Women in black bleh. Don't care.

Just watched Son of a gun which was very good, slow in some parts but a decent film and Poker night whiuch was a good low budget movie.
