The Hobbit made only $7.74 mil. on Monday, which is quite a disappointment, to be realistic.
In comparison, Return of the King made 13.6 mil. on its first Monday, and it was its sixth day of the release.
That is disappointing but not surprising considering it sold less tickets
on its opening weekend than The Two Towers
. It only made more money because of IMAX.
Not to take away the significance that AUJ sold fewer tickets than TTT, but worthy of note, with respect to the Monday-after-release numbers: For ROTK, the Monday in question was the one right before Christmas (the 22nd) - more schools and businesses were closed on that day than this past Monday (the 17th).
