Weekend Box Office- December 13-15, 2013

Written in



Bilbo and company could not match the opening of An Unexpected Journey but still opened huge worldwide. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug opened to $73.7 million down from last year’s $84.7 million but should not be cause for worry. Many thought An Unexpected Journey’s opening was disappointing and it went on to gross $1 billion worldwide. After one weekend Desolation of Smaug is sitting at $205 million with worldwide totals.

Tyler Perry released another Madea movie. This time a Christmas tale which I am sure involved her slapping kids, being funny and one of her family dealing with an abusive husband who ends up learning the true meaning of love just in time for the holidays. I swear I just made that up so if I guessed the plot of it I am sorry. Bringing in $16 million was on the low end for Madea but it was up against a lot of competition.
