The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies hit the UK box office on 12th December 2015 with a £9.7 million debut weekend.
Being hailed as the last chance to see a Middle Earth move at the cinema the film had a 7 week stay on the box office taking £40.9 million during that time.
The film did well across the globe, it took over $255 million in the US and across the globe it grossed $941.5 million.
In the UK it is the 37th highest grossing film ever while across the world it is the 27th highest grossing film ever.

Also new on the UK video chart is: Dumb and Dumber To at 2, Tinker Bell and The Legend of The Neverbeast at 3 and direct to video film Mankinds Last Stand at 9.
Taking a very respectable £9.8 million the third and last film in The Hobbit, and The Middle Earth saga manages to beat everything else with ease, and it also beats the second of The Hobbit films but not the first.
The new number one film takes over from last weeks top film Paddington which falls a single place after two weeks at the top, it's total gross so far is £14.3 million.
Also new this week is Tinker Bell and The Legend of The Neverbeast at 7.

Other new video to chart this week
Ride Along at 3
Disney released the 5th Tinker Bell feature film at UK cinemas on February 14th this year, over a 6 week period if debuted at 6 with £966,920 but then flew up to number 6 the following week taking £1,207,245.
It took a total gross of £5,459,408 which is by far the highest of the Tinker Bell films, the previous high being £3,798,612 from Tinker Bell and the Secret of the Wings in 2012.
Frozen continues it run on the video chart with a 13th week none of them being lower than 3.
Last weeks top film, Robocop falls to 3 this week.
Maybe because of the slightly less than favorable reviews are the reason but The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey debuts this week with a less than expected £11,601,538, still excellent but for best opening weekends that gross places it only at 33, between Pirates of the Caribbean 4 and 2, still an excellent gross but I don't think it will have a dominance over the box office like Skyfall has.
The Hobbit was nearly the only film released this week, but Disney did release Tinker Bell and the Secret of the Wings which landed at 5 with £528,82
Falling to number 2 this week is Rise of the Guardians which grossed £1,250,469 over the weekend.
