LOS ANGELES (AP) — It took Leatherface and his chainsaw to chase tiny hobbit Bilbo Baggins out of the top spot at the box office.

Studio estimates Sunday show the horror sequel “Texas Chainsaw 3-D” at No. 1 with a $23 million debut. The follow-up to 1974’s “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” has masked killer Leatherface on the loose again.

Quentin Tarantino’s revenge saga “Django Unchained” held on at No. 2 for a second-straight weekend with $20.1 million, raising its domestic total to $106.4 million.

After three weekends at No. 1, part one of Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” trilogy slipped to third with $17.5 million. That lifts the domestic haul to $263.8 million for “The Hobbit,” which also has topped $500 million overseas to raise its worldwide total to about $800 million.
