‘Mission Impossible- Ghost Protocol’ began the year 2012 holding on to the #1 spot in the box office. Tom Cruise’s movie finished the end of the year with $31.2million in the United States with a grand total of $134.1million since it premiered. It seems like it will be a mission impossible to take its place.

Lastly, ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked’ followed the example by keeping the third place for the second consecutive week. The other two films that followed have received a lot of positive reviews: ‘War Horse’ & ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’.
