With just one week to go until the digital release of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (on March 12) and two weeks until the Blu-ray and DVD (on March 19), the film has crossed the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office. The New Line/Warner Bros. and MGM release has earned $301.1 million domestically and $700 million internationally.

"An Unexpected Journey" has become only the 15th film to ever cross the $1 billion mark. Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King previously earned $1.119 billion in 2003 and sits at #6 on the all-time list.

The second film, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, is scheduled to hit theaters on December 13, 2013, and The Hobbit: There and Back Again was just moved from July 18, 2014 to December 17, 2014.
