‘Five Armies’ lifts gloom

Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit:The Battle Of Five Armies’ has grossed $34.4m after two days of release, giving a much needed boost to the North American box office.  It made a flying start on Wednesday with an outstanding $24.5m off 3,875 theatres (including $11.2m from preview screenings) for the second highest mid-week opening of all time.  Although the film fell by 59% on Thursday, it’s in line with a Wednesday five-day launch and should enjoy a strong Friday.
