“Hobbit” fans led by way on the final day of 2014 at the U.S. box office as New Line-MGM’s “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” grossed $6 million to lift its total to $189.5 million after 15 days.
“Five Armies” edged Universal’s holiday hit “Unbroken,” which took in $5.9 million on New Year’s Eve to finish its first week at $62.5 million. Disney’s seventh day of “Into the Woods” followed closely with $5.3 million to push its one-week gross past $64 million.

Warner Bros. reports The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies added an estimated $6.0 million on New Year's Eve Wednesday as it retained first place. That figure brings the finale's domestic total up to $189.5 million through 15 days of release -- 11 percent more than The Desolation of Smaug earned through the same release point.
Unbroken grabbed $5.9 million yesterday in second place, giving the Universal pic a total of $62.5 million through 7 days. Angelina Jolie's directorial effort is pacing 19 percent ahead of where The Curious Case of Benjamin Button stood at the same point following its Christmas Day release six years ago.
