Smaug wins box-office weekend
The second Hobbit movie didn't open quite as large as the first, but it shows that audience member still have a taste for Middle Earth, and it's good for them, because competition is about to get really stiff. Anchorman 2 and Walking with Dinosaurs both open this Friday, and Saving Mr. Banks and American Hustle will expand wide. Then Christmas Day, we'll get The Wolf of Wall Street, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Grudge Match, Believe, 47 Ronin, and expansions for Inside Llewyn Davis and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
