‘Les Miz’ Sweeps Box Office

Can you hear the producers sing? Les Misérables is dominating on the big screen just like it did the stage: opening on Christmas Day, the musical raked in a massive $17.5 million, and was the top advance ticket-seller among all releases. Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, which also debuted Tuesday, took in around $3 million less than the Victor Hugo adaptation. Nothing like watching two and a half hours of death and despair to get into the holiday spirit.
