Your final, bygone box office report of 2012:
1. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - $31.9 million, closing out the motion picture year with an unexpected journey, even if our actual lives have been a year of utterly-dependable stagnation.
2. Django Unchained - $30.1 million. Because if there's one combo that always works, it's Leonardo DiCaprio, historical fiction, and then either a young, star-crosssed romance or brutally-enslaved peoples.
3. Les Misérables - $27.3 million, and already over $100 million worldwide. Pretty solid numbers for a musical prequel to Kate & Leopold.
4. Parental Guidance - $14.6 million. It seems Fox has done well to promote this one entirely on its most bankable star: the PG rating.
5. Jack Reacher - $14 million. Happy Cruise Year.
