The Hobbit Sets Box Office Record for December Opening
The Hobbit also set a December midnight showing record at $13 million, over three times higher than any previous December film.
It's estimated that the film will pull in anywhere between $85 and $105 million this weekend.
Looks like the film will settle in for a nice long holiday run... any predictions on how much it'll pull in worldwide? The previous 3 films each approached $1 billion--I expect this one to be close too.
