MUMBAI: ?The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey? has surpassed the $1 billion milestone at the worldwide box office. The joint announcement was made by New Line Cinema president COO Toby Emmerich, MGM Studios chairman CEO Gary Barber, Warner Bros.

In making the announcement, Fellman stated, "We could not be more proud to have reached this amazing benchmark. Together with our partners at MGM and New Line, everyone at Warner Bros. congratulates Peter Jackson and his entire cast and crew on the extraordinary success of this film"

Kwan Vandenberg said, "From Berlin to Beijing, it is so gratifying to see how the release of ?The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey? has been such an event with audiences around the world. It?s an exciting bellwether as we move toward the release of the second film in the trilogy"

?The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey? a production of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) Pictures, is the first film in Oscar winning filmmaker Peter Jackson?s epic ?The Hobbit?
