Django Unchained fell 33 percent from its opening weekend, dipping to just under $21 million and falling to second place.

It's on pace to out-earn Inglorious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino’s previous highest grossest film.

Here is a look at the very diverse top five from the year's first weekend of box office receipts:

  1. Texas Chainsaw 3D: $23 million
  2. Django Unchained: $20.8 million
  3. The Hobbit: $17.5 million
  4. Les Miserables: $16.1 million
  5. Parental Guidance: $10.1 million
