Les Miserables and Django Unchained Shatter Christmas Records

by at . Comments

So much for our terrible Les Miserables review.

The big screen version of this world famous musical banked $18.2 million yesterday, according to The Hollywood Reporter, setting a new benchmark for weekday Christmas Day openings.

Sherlock Holmes owns the overall Christmas record when it opened on a Friday and earned $24.6 million.

Django Unchained, meanwhile, didn't exactly disappoint, either. Despite Spike Lee's protest.

The Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio-driven drama shot past Ali to become the highest-grossing R-rated movie to open on December 25. It brought in a cool $15 million.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey raked in $11.3 million, with Parental Guidance and Jack Reacher rounding out the top five.
