The Hobbit film took in $9.3 million on Christmas Day, while the Leonardo DiCaprio-starrer The Wolf of Wall Street made just under that amount with $9.2 million.

Will Ferrell‘s Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues came in at number three with $8.1 million earned.

Coming in at fourth place was also another new opener The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, which earned $7.8 million.

Keanu Reaves47 Ronin and Sylvester Stallone‘s Grudge Match also were new openers, but did not fare as well at the box office, bringing in $7 million and $4 million, respectively.

    The Wolf of Wall Street was one of the best made movies I have seen lately. If Leonardo Di Caprio does not win the Oscar for best actor this year, then there is something seriously wrong with the academy voters. He was absolutely brilliant in the movie. You almost hate his character, but you kind of root for him too. A lot of language in this film, but boy did he take us on a rollercoaster ride. 3 hours of pure entertainment. Trust me people, you will love this movie and it will make you laugh. Seriously laugh
