Box Office: ‘Hobbit’ Finale Marching Toward $88 Million

Variety: “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” is marching toward a box office victory.

The final installment of Peter Jackson’s “Hobbit” trilogy grossed $16.6 million on Friday in the U.S. on its way to hauling almost $54 million this weekend, which would put its five-day total at $88 million. This is far above recent estimates of $80 million.

Oh boy, at this rate they may re-boot the lord of the rings.You know it can happen. Could you imagine Micheal Bay doing it? LOL

I was actually curious if there was even slight talk of them either rebooting, or extending it somehow. I listened to a few interviews where they mentioned how much visuals and technology has changed since the first movie so they wish they could update them. One point they mentioned it was awkward that The Hobbit was actually looking better than what was technically later stories.
