‘The Hobbit’ Dominates Weekend Box Office

The HobbitThe Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies opened to a massive $90.6 million in North America, while Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb and Annie both suffered soft starts as the crucial year-end holidays got underway.

Five Armies soared in its five-day domestic debut after earning an A- CinemaScore, including a weekend tally of $56.2 million.
