Box Office Predictions: 'The Hobbit' Rises, 'Avatar' Falls

Sensei's call streak hit eleven weeks last week. This week, how high can "The Hobbit" climb?

Sensei's weekend predictions and revenue results go as follows:

1. "The Hobbit" ($107 million)  - After nine years of waiting, fans finally get to return to Middle Earth. While I don't see a "Twilight: Breaking Dawn" or "Hunger Games"-like breakout, I do see one closer to "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," which opened to just more than $100 million in 2008. Film will easily set the record for the highest opening ever in the month of December (beating both "I Am Legend" and "Avatar").

2. "Rise of the Guardians" ($6.2 million) - Film came close to beating James Bond last week, this time it pulls ahead.

3. "Skyfall" ($5.9 million) - Film is making a run for the $1 billion mark worldwide. That would be quite an accomplishment considering how few films cross such a marker. Only time will tell, but will be fun watching "Skyfall" try to make it there.

4. "Lincoln" ($5.2 million) - Film should get a boost off its recent award nominations. Amazing, a film getting awards buzz that audiences actually want to see.

5. "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part Two" ($4.6 million) - Based on worldwide grosses, film has already become the most successful entry in the franchise (currently more than $750 million). Anything earned past this is just icing on the cake.

That's Sensei's calls. Have a great weekend.
