Audiences are still flocking to Middle-Earth.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is #1 at the box office for the second straight week, with $36.7 million in ticket sales.

That was enough to beat two new releases — the Tom Cruise action flick Jack Reacher, which came in second with $15.6 million, and the Judd Apatow-directed comedy This Is 40, which nabbed third with $12 million.

The animated Rise of the Guardians and Lincoln came in fourth and fifth places with $5.9 million and $5.6 million, respectively.

Rounding out the Top 10 were the Seth RogenBarbra Streisand road comedy The Guilt Trip ($5.4 million), the Monsters Inc. 3D re-release ($5 million), Skyfall ($4.7 million), Life of Pi ($3.8 million), and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 ($2.7 million).
