'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' Marches Past the $100M Mark After Leading Tuesday with $9.8MDecember 24, 2014 12:18 PM

by Daniel Garris

Warner's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies took in $9.80 million on Tuesday to lead the daily box office for a seventh consecutive day. In the process, the third and final chapter of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy surpassed the $100 million domestic milestone yesterday. The Battle of the Five Armies was up a solid 9 percent over Monday's performance. The film has grossed $107.94 million in its first week of release. That places The Battle of the Five Armies 12 percent ahead of the $96.05 million seven-day start of last year's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and 5 percent behind the $113.15 million seven-day take of 2012's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Fox's Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb grossed $4.14 million to remain in second. The third installment of the Ben Stiller led franchise had another nice daily hold on Tuesday, as it was up a strong 22 percent over Monday. With that said, the film is still running significantly below expectations with a five-day start of $24.65 million. That places Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb 16 percent behind the $29.46 million five-day take of 2011's Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked.

Fellow family film Annie held steady in third place with $3.54 million. Sony's musical remake starring Quvenzhané Wallis, Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz increased 11 percent over Monday's performance. Annie continues to remain within shouting distance of Secret of the Tomb, as it has grossed $22.61 million in five days. Annie is currently running 23 percent behind the pace of the already mentioned Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 continued to claim fourth place with $1.91 million. The third installment of Lionsgate's blockbuster franchise was up 11 percent over Monday and up 39 percent over last Tuesday. Mockingjay - Part 1 has grossed $292.98 million in 33 days. The film is now just $7.02 million away from becoming the second release of 2014 to reach the $300 million domestic milestone.

Fox's Exodus: Gods and Kings rounded out the day's unchanged top five with $1.56 million. The pricey Ridley Scott directed biblical epic was up 21 percent from Monday and down 29 percent from last Tuesday. Exodus: Gods and Kings has grossed a lackluster $41.79 million through twelve days of release.
