In the short time that Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has been in theaters, it has managed to break past $500 million at the worldwide box office.  The bigwigs at New Line Cinema and Warner Bros made the official announcement today that the film has brought in $523.7 million to date.  It brought in $179.7 million domestically with another $344 million coming in internationally.  And I’mma let you finish, but you gotta know that its release in Australia was the biggest Boxing Day opening of ALL TIME.  (Yes, I did just pull a Kanye.  And yes, it was intentional.  And yes, I do think it was funny.)

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is the first installment of a three-part epic based on Tolkien’s The Hobbit.

Have y’all seen it yet?  What did you think?
