The Hobbit Defeats Jack Reacher, Repeats as Box Office Champion

by at . Comments

Tom Cruise hasn't been given much reason to celebrate this holiday season, as his latest action flick fizzled at the box office.

Jack Reacher, a movie based on a best-selling collection of Lee Child novels, garnered a mere $15.6 million on Friday and Saturday, a scant improvement over Cruise's previous vehicle, Rock of Ages.

So much for talk of a franchise.
