Box Office Numbers: Christmas Weekend


The numbers are a little funky this weekend due to the Wednesday openings, and even the placements are kind of throwing me off…

See, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is all the way down at 4, while Tintin is at 5. I’m rather disappointed by both of those. Mission Impossible hopping back up to number 1 is weird, but Alvin and Sherlock remaining so high in light of newer, better movies means that people didn’t just leave the kids alone at home to see Dragon Tattoo. Well, when you say it like that…

Check out the full numbers below.
