Pariah movie

Of most importance to us is how Pariah did this weekend in its limited opening engagements, and we'll get to that in a second.

But first, no surprise, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol was No. 1 again this weekend, bringing the franchise and Tom Cruise's career back to life, pulling in over $300 million worldwide to date. 

Other films, like Sherlock Holmes and We Bought A Zoo increased their box office totals significantly, and War Horse opened strongly as well.

But Pariah did extremely well in its very limited platform release this weekend, making almost $81,500 in only 4 theaters nationwide. The film expands to more theaters on January 6th, and strong word of mouth and solid reviews should help it pull in some solid numbers.

Here's this weekend's list:

1) Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol Par$31,250,000 Total: $134,139,000
2)Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows WB $22,095,000 Total:$132,100,000
