Box Office Breakdown: ‘Wolf’ Is No Match for ‘The Hobbit’

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Despite the formidable opponent Scorsese's Oscar buzz-generating The Wolf of Wall Street appeared, it did not have enough pull to say The Lord of the Rings fans who flocked for the third consecutive week to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug remain at number one.

The sequel to last year's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey earned $29.8 million this week, while Frozen was bumped up one spot from last week to number two with $28.8 million. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues fell to number three with its $20.1 million draw, and American Hustle stayed put at number four with $19.5 million. The Wolf of Wall Street debuted at number five with $18.5 million.
