    "Les Miserables" topped the Christmas box office, grossing approximately $17.5 million on its opening day.

Also released yesterday was the family comedy "Parental Guidance" starring Bette Midler and Billy Crystal. "The Hobbit" was released earlier this month, but still made $10.8 million in Christmas Day viewings.
