The dwarfs and elves of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" prevailed at the North American box office again over the weekend, as its 33 million dollars (USD) in ticket sales topped both the star-packed musical "Les Miserables" and the western "Django Unchained." "The Hobbit," in its third week of release, has now grossed 222.7 million domestically. Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," a western starring Jamie Fox as a slave turned bounty hunter, took second with an impressive nearly 31 million. Despite surging past "The Hobbit" on Christmas day with an 18 million opening, "Les Miz" managed only third place in U.S. and Canadian sales with 28 million as Christmas shoppers returned from the malls to boost Hollywood's box office, according to studio estimates. Tom Cruise's crime drama "Jack Reacher," a film that features author Lee Child's former military investigator solving a fatal sniper attack, landed in fifth with 14 million, outpaced by "Parental Guidance," the Billy Crystal-Bette Midler as grandparents comedy, which took in 14.8 million to nab the fourth spot.
