The Hobbit Kicks Off The Year At The Top Of The Box Office

The HobbitLed by Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, a strong slate of Christmas holdovers and new entry The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death drove revenue up more than 8 percent as the prosperous holiday season came to a close. The spike in moviegoing is welcome news for Hollywood after an overall troubled 2014, when revenue tumbled more than 5 percent over 2013 and attendance hit a two-decade low.

The top 12 films of the weekend, as of Sunday, January 4, are as follows:
