After a blitz of publicity that began many months before it’s opening date, “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” could only manage a second place finish it’s opening weekend scoring $26.8 million. It was expected to do twice that amount.

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” finished number one this weekend with $31.5 million. That gives it $127.5 million for two weeks in release.
