Box Office Results · January 01, 2012
With many people still on holiday and no new major releases at the movies, all the previously released flicks had a significant increase in their numbers from last weekend.
‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ is virtually unstoppable! It claimed the top spot again this weekend bringing its total domestic gross to almost $135M. At this rate it is completely possible for ‘Ghost Protocol’ to match or surpass the $181M earned back in 1996 by the original ‘Mission: Impossible’ movie.
‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’ held onto the second spot with $22M, and a 9% rise in ticket sales. ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked’ jumped up to the third position due to an astonishing 45% increase in ticket sales!
Now, if you’re impressed with that figure, you’d better brace yourself because tickets for Steven Spielberg’s ‘War Horse’ jumped a staggering 125%!? This heart-warming equine tale leapt from the seventh spot all the way to the fourth! People just love Joey!!!
