Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows

December 17, 2011 by staff 

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, “Sherlock Holmes” and “Alvin and the Chipmunks” are not delivering the extremely strong opening weekends many box office-watchers had hoped for, but “Mission: Impossible” is drawing some impressive numbers in its limited release.

Early estimates have “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” taking in $14.5 million on Friday and on track to a weekend in the $37.5 million range. That is nothing like the $62.3 million the original “Holmes” opened to in 2009, and nowhere near the $60 million that some optimistic box-office watchers had predicted for the Warner Bros. movie.

“Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked,” grossed an estimated $6.6 million Friday, setting it up for a weekend of about $23.3 million. Fox expected the third in its “Alvin and the Chipmunks” franchise to have a weekend in the mid-to-high $20 million range.

“Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol,” meanwhile, roared into 300 IMAX theaters and 125 other locations with impressive results. The movie took an estimated $4.7 million Friday night, and is looking at a $13.3 million weekend.

The fourth installment of Paramount and Skydance’s popular action franchise had a remarkable per-location average of $31,280, according to rival-studio estimates.

The movie is getting a boost from the “Dark Knight Rises” prologue, which is showing before “M:I4″ in IMAX theaters.

Earlier:

After two wretched weekends at the box office, sequels to “Sherlock Holmes,” “Alvin and the Chipmunks” “Mission: Impossible” are riding in to rescue the domestic movie business.

The three films will kick off a tentpole onslaught that will see eight movies released wide over nine days. The studios hope that they’ll also kickstart the box office.
