Three additional titles piled into theatres on Christmas Day, capping off the busiest box office week of 2012. As expected, Universal’s Les Miserables was Tuesday’s clear winner, earning an estimated $18.2 million from 2,808 locations. Django Unchained placed second with just over $15 million from 3,010 locations – beating the $14.3 million debut of Inglourious Basterds to become the best opening ever for director Quentin Tarantino. After eleven days on top, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey fell to third place with $11.3 million, though that still placed it well ahead of Christmas Day’s final gift. The Fox comedy Parental Guidance had the widest release of the day (3,358 locations) but still wound up in fourth with an estimated $6.4 million.

Title Tuesday Total
1.  Les Miserables $18,200,000 $18.2
2.  Django Unchained $15,030,000 $15
3.  The Hobbit $11,300,000 $168.3
4.  Parental Guidance $6,400,000 $6.4
5.  Jack Reacher $5,300,000 $23.5
