‘Protocol’ retains top spot at Friday B.O.

Par actioner takes in $10.7 mil for domestic cume of $113.6 mil

Hollywood is taking a New Year’s vacation, allowing America to catch up on holiday releases.

Paramount’s “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” won again yesterday with $10.7 million. The actioner has cumed $113.6 million domestically, making it the second highest grossing entry in the franchise by its second wide Saturday (“Mission: Impossible II” had earned $121.7 million by this point in 2000, aided by a Wednesday summer release).

“Ghost Protocol” should land close to $40 million through Sunday.

Warner Bros.’ “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” came in second with 7.7 million, followed by Fox’s “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked” with $7.1 million. At their third weekend in wide release, pics have cumed $117.7 million and $83.5 million, respectively.

Next, Sony’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” grossed $5.4 million yesterday. Its current domestic cume is $46.2 million, and studio expects it to cross the $60 million mark through Monday.

Other holdovers include Fox’s “We Bought a Zoo” and Disney’s “War Horse,” which took a Friday haul of $4.9 million and $4.7 million, respectively. Finally, Par’s “The Adventures of Tintin” grossed $4.4 million yesterday.

Though the domestic B.O. is seeing little love in new wide releases, Weinstein Co. bowed “The Iron Lady,” Focus Features bowed “Pariah,” Sony Pictures Classics bowed “A Separation” and Magnolia bowed “Angels Crest” all in limited release yesterday.
