The Hobbit Box Office

Tom Cruise Film Struggles With ‘The Hobbit’

This hobbit isn’t giving in. “The Hobbit” is a box-office success that Tom Cruise’s “Jack Reacher” is having trouble competing with.

Tom Cruise and a popular action novel series combined can’t topple the success of J. R. R. Tolkien’s epic, which the fans have been waiting for since “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of The King”. That is one powerful ring indeed.

“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” took the top spot with earnings of $37.6 million according to

“The Hobbit” has brought in $148.9 million in ten days and proves to be a top performer for Warner Bros..

This isn’t saying that “Jack Reacher” was a flop. Quite the opposite, as it has raked in $15.6 million and placed second at the box office, an impressive feat that no doubt Tom Cruise had a lot to do with. Face it; audiences love Tom Cruise.

The premier for “Jack Reacher” had been postponed due to the Connecticut shooting, but the film is doing well in spite of a possible backlash against violent movies.
