Los Angeles - Tom Cruise's latest mission has won a holiday weekend that's shaping up with some silent nights at movie theaters as business continues to lag.

Studio estimates Sunday place Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol a solid No 1 with $26.5m domestically over its first weekend in full release.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows was No 2 in its second weekend with $17.8m. Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked finished third with $13.3m.

Big newcomers failed to light up the box office, though.

David Fincher and Daniel Craig's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was No 4 with $13m, Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin was No 5 with $9.1m and Cameron Crowe and Matt Damon's We Bought a Zoo was No 6 with $7.8m.
