Topping the weekend box office with an estimated $73.7 million, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug [HOBT2] fell short of the record $84.6 million debut by The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey last year.  The fantasy sequel attracted the Tolkein fanbase that was 60% male.

Last weekend's champ Frozen [FROZE] slipped to second at $22.2 million.  The disney animated film has earned $164.4 million.

A Mdea Christmas [MADCH] debuted in third place with $16.2 million, the lowest opening in Tyler Perry's franchise.
