"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" was the unexpected winner at the box office for another weekend, grossing $32.9 domestically, according to the latest estimates.

Although "Les Misérables" was expected to attract the largest audiences this weekend -- its first since opening on Christmas -- the Anne Hathaway musical remains in third place behind "Django Unchained" ($30.6 million) with an estimated $28 million. Its six-day total of $67.4 million, however, is the best ever for a musical.

In the same time period, Quentin Tarantino's controversial "Django" has raked in over $64 million, more than half the total gross of "Inglorious Basterds" -- $120.5 million -- the director's last flick.

In other box-office news, "Skyfall" just surpassed the $1 billion worldwide milestone, making it the 14th-highest-grossing film.

Here are the Top 10 films for the weekend based on the latest estimates:

1. "The Hobbit," $32.9 million
2. "Django Unchained," $30.6 million
3. "Les Misérables," $28 million
