Weekend Box Office: Little People and Elderly Given Attention


Your weekend box office:

1. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - $84.8 million, setting a new December record over I Am Legend. Because if there's one thing mainstream America loves more than vampires and Will Smith, it's high fantasy, apparently.

2. Rise of the Guardians - $7.4 million, still making true so many Christmas wishes for the Easter Bunny to be an Australian stereotype.

3. Lincoln - $7.2 million, climbing up from the fourth spot with its new tagline, "This Is About Young Santa."

4. Skyfall - $7 million, falling three positions but nonetheless now at over $950 million worldwide. (Somewhat less in Bond's native currency, BondBuck$.)

5. Life of Pi - $5.4 million. Meanwhile, the prior weekend's sole new release, Playing for Keeps, slips to eighth, still haunted by its inclusion of Gerard Butler.
