1. Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol- $44.1 million
2. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows- $31 million
3. Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked- $19.5 million
4. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo- $19.5 million
5. The Adventures of Tintin- $15.1 million

7. War Horse- $14.5 million
8. New Year's Eve- $5.2 million
9. The Darkest Hour- $5.1 million
10. Hugo- $3.3 million
No surprises here based on the 3 day estimates, but it is notable that War Horse made almost $15 million in two days. That's very good, especially considering it's only in 2300 theatres.
1. Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol- $9.6 million
2. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows- $7.3 million
3. Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked- $6.8 million
4. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo- $4.7 million
5. The Adventures of Tintin- $4.6 million
6. We Bought a Zoo- $4.3 million
7. War Horse- $4.2 million
8. New Year's Eve- $1.7 million
9. The Darkest Hour- $1.5 million
10. The Muppets- $1 million
Quite a few people seem to be counting out Dragon Tattoo and saying it will finish with $60-70 million. That's nonsense. I'd say it's on pace for $90-100 million and maybe more depending on WOM. It'll have nearly $40 million by the end of tomorrow, and will make $15+ million on the weekend, so that already brings it to approximately $55 million. As kids and teens go back to school, Alvin, Sherlock, and Zoo will fall. There are some adult films coming out in January, but none will have the WOM that DT has (except maybe The Grey, which I hear it fantastic). It might not be the $200 million hit that some expected, but in hindsight, that was a ridiculous expectation. We're in the midst of a pretty huge box-office slump and it's not a tough film to swallow, especially around Christmas.
Oh, and War Horse had a pretty big drop, but that may have something to do with its release date. It'll probably pick up on the weekend.
