jamie foxx (as cowboy with gun in 'django')*No matter what the critics said, “Django” wasn’t going to be chained.

The controversial Quentin Tarantino flick has already made a whole lot of money, but only came in No. 2 this past weekend to “Texas Chainsaw 3-D,” which debuted at No. 1 with $23 million.

“Chainsaw” surprised a lot of pundits with its strong box office showing because it was almost universally panned by critics.

Jamie Foxx and his lovely “Django Unchained” cast mates have brought in a total of $106.4 million since its release on Christmas Day. It could easily top $200 million before it’s all over.

Other popular films included “The Hobbit,” which garnered $263.8 million after three weeks in the States. Its international earnings boasted $561 million. “Les Miserables” closed the weekend out at No. 4 but earning an overall $103.6 million since being released.
