django unchained poster (foxx & dicaprio)*Box office estimates through Saturday are now available.

According to Nikki Finke at Deadline, Les Misérables placed behind Quentin Tarantino’s controversial Django Unchained, which is quite a feat for an R-rated pic.

“We are having a really big day on Django!” a TWC (The Weinstein Company) exec gushes to me Saturday. “From what I can tell, it looks like we will be very close to Hobbit.” Yowza!
