The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey looks to have edged out two challengers for the weekend’s top spot at the box office.

Peter Jackson’s latest fantasy epic earned $32.9 million in its third weekend, just enough to beat new release Django Unchained, with a projected $30.7 million in ticket sales.

Les Misérables, in its debut week, took third place with $28 million.

The family comedy Parental Guidance and Tom Cruise’s action-packed Jack Reacher came in fourth and fifth with $14.8 million and $14 million, respectively.

Rounding out the Top 10 were This Is 40 ($13.2 million), Lincoln ($7.5 million), The Guilt Trip ($6.7 million), the animated re-release Monsters Inc 3D ($6.3 million), and Rise of the Guardians ($4.9 million).
