Tom Cruise Welcomes 2012 at the Top of the Box Office Again while Meryl Streep makes her Move

Perhaps the comeback of the year for 2012 is already a done deal with Mr. Tom Cruise. The previously polarizing, and formerly loved, actor seems to be getting back into everyone’s good graces on account of his smash box office hit, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocal. The fourth film in the series lead the weekend again with another $31.2 million for a total of $134 million. Watch this one to cruise, pun intended, to somewhere over $200 million when all is said and done. Landing in second over the new year weekend was Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows with another $22 million for a total of $132 million. Both films were up big over the past weekend as was every movie with War Horse gaining the most up 25%. Take a look at all the films and their strong grosses below… One more note belongs to Meryl Streep who should win an Oscar for her new film The Iron Lady. The drama opened in limited release over the weekend in just 4 theaters with a gigantic per screen average of $55,450. Meryl can do no wrong! … For more on all the numbers, head to Box Office Mojo here.
