Paramount maintained its holiday B.O. lead, as “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” collected Thursday $6.4 million, bringing the pic’s Stateside cume to $32.4 million.

Internationally, “Mission” has cumed $96 million through Wednesday.

Warner Bros.’ “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” surged Thursday, up 7%, with $4.8 million, for a Stateside tally of $58.8 million.

Meanwhile, Sony’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” tallied on Thursday $3.3 million, down slightly from Wednesday’s opening-day tally of $3.6 million, though “Tattoo” had an additional $500,000 in midnight grosses that day.

So far, “Dragon Tattoo” has collected $8.4 million domestically.

Par’s “The Adventures of Tintin” — the holiday’s third wide midweek opener — collected $2.4 million Thursday, which is up just slightly from the toon’s $2.3 million opening-day gross. That’s likely a result of more tots out of school — a boon also for Fox’s “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked,” which earned almost $4 million, up 13% over Wednesday. (Approximately 81% of K-12 students are on vacation starting today.)

In total, “Tintin” has collected $8 million domestically; “Alvin,” $36.9 million. Overseas, the pair have collected through Sunday $293.1 million and $13.7 million, respectively.
