New Line-MGM’s The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies will see out 2014 as the dominant film as the worldwide tally climbed to $573.6m.
New Line-MGM’s The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies stayed top in its second session over the December holiday weekend to reach $169m through Warner Bros, while Sony Picture’s The Interview grossed $2.8m from 331 sites in a day-and-date digital launch that drew 2million rentals and downloads.
In a development that looks set to exacerbate simmering unrest between Sony Pictures and the major exhibitors, the studio has moved ahead with an online platform release for the controversial comedy.
