Home Movies Box Office: “Les Miz” in at Number 1, “Django” Follows Closely, Tom...

The receipts are still being counted for Christmas Day box office. But it does look like a lot of people made it from their dinner tables to the movie theaters. “Les Miserables” came in at a boffo number 1 with somewhere between $16-$18 million. (UPDATE $18.2 Million– very nice!) Quentin Tarantino’s wild ride, “Django Unchained,” finished a close second. All of this means that Tom Cruise in “Jack Reacher” was knocked to number 5. The final numbers will be available later Wednesday. A couple of things are as I predicted: “Les Miz” has a pent up demand, and once it hit theaters, it took off. Internationally, the numbers will go even crazier. “Django” is a word of mouth hit. Forget the so called “controversies” about racism and the N word. (They– the controversies– are manufactured.) Every single person I know who’s seen “Django” loves it. Black, white, purple, doesn’t matter. It’s a great entertainment. So hold on for updates and keep refreshing…

What do you think?
