The Hobbit 2 Desolates the Competition

Well, except for Frozen because that's still doing well.

Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug ($73.7 million) easily took the top spot at the box office this weekend. Though it made less than An Unexpected Journey's $84 million, Smaug could still have strong legs throughout the Holiday Season and push it close the $1 Billion mark worldwide.

As for Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas, it took in $16 million for third place which is decent. However, it marks one of Tyler Perry's lowest openings.
