Christmas in Connecticut
Anyway, the business of the box office rolls along, and The Hobbit is probably going to kick ass, even though it's another three hour tour. Take that, Cloud Atlas! (11:52am, Sunday) Boo-YAH! 84 million, with second place (Rise of the Guardians) making a mere 7 million pittance. That's an old fashioned ass-kicking. No other debuts to speak of. However, I would like to point out that Life of the Pi has been at #5 for four weeks in a row. Is there a '5555' sequence in ¶? No, wait, that's the "new paragraph" symbol. π. There we go. Also, Silver Linings Playbook makes a triumphant return to the Top 10, coming in at #10. This kind of thing tends to happen when one film crushes the competition like that damn Hobbit movie. I'm afraid the Oscar community's going to again wait until the third installment to laud you with more golden statuettes, Jackson. Nothing personal, it's just tradition now.
