Paramount Pictures' "The Wolf of Wall Street" is the box-office leader of the five movies that opened in wide release in the U.S. and Canada on Dec. 25, 2013. However, Warner Bros. Pictures' "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" is still expected to be No. 1 for the period from Dec. 25 to Dec. 29, 2013.

According to a Box Office Mojo report published on Dec. 26, 2013, here are the first-day box-office totals for the five movies that opened in wide release on Christmas Day:

  • "The Wolf of Wall Street" — $9.15 million
  • "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" — $7.8 million
  • "47 Ronin" — $7 million
  • "Grudge Match" — $3.9 million
  • "Justin Bieber: Believe" — $1.25 million

While "The Wolf of Wall Street" (starring Leonardo DiCaprio and based on the real-life story of disgraced Wall Street executive Jordan Belfort) is shaping up to be a hit, and 20th Century Fox's dramedy "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" (directed by and starring Ben Stiller) is doing solid business, the biggest flops of this year's Christmas movies are Universal Pictures' martial-arts flick "47 Ronin" (starring Keanu Reeves), Warner Bros. Pictures' "Grudge Match" (starring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro as two rival boxers who come out of retirement to settle a grudge), and Open Road Pictures' documentary "Justin Bieber: Believe."
