'The Hobbit' Breaks Record With $643K New Zealand Debut

"The Hobbit" debuted to a record $643,000 in Peter Jackson's home New Zealand Wednesday as Warner Bros. prepared to open the film in 4,045 theaters in the U.S. on Friday.

That's a lot of theaters, but less than a handful of this year's biggest U.S. releases, including "Dark Knight Rises," the Batman movie that Warner Bros. gave the widest rollout with 4,404 locations in July.
