Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol remained at the top spot at the Box Office during the Christmas weekend earning $ 26.5 million.

Cruise’s fourth Mission flick was a bright spot over the festive weekend filled with so-so tidings for Hollywood, whose usually busy holiday stretch since Thanksgiving has been a bust.

The movie raised its total to $ 59 million since it started a week earlier in huge-screen cinemas and expanded nationwide last Wednesday, and distributor Paramount estimated that revenues will reach $ 72.7 million by Monday.

In second place was Warner Bros.’ Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. The detective adventure starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law brought in an estimated $ 17.8 million in its second weekend.

Generally well-reviewed movies like Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin, David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo opened with modest to weak results.

FOX’s Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked placed third with $ 13.3 million in domestic sales, the Daily Telegraph reported.

SONY’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara came fourth with $ 13 million and The Adventures of Tintin, directed by Steven Spielberg, grabbed the fifth slot with $ 9.1 million.

As of Friday, Ghost Protocol had also brought in a healthy $ 118 million overseas.
