LOS ANGELES (AP) - Hollywood has picked up a little Christmas bonus.

Studios generally underestimated the size of their movie audiences over the weekend, and they're now revising the holiday revenues upward.

Leading the way is Tom Cruise's "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," which pulled in $29.5 million for the weekend. That Monday figure is $3 million more than distributor Paramount estimated a day earlier.

For the four-day period Friday to Monday, Paramount estimates
"Ghost Protocol" will have taken in $46.2 million to raise its domestic total to $78.6 million.

Studios Monday also reported stronger results than they did a day earlier for Robert Downey Jr.'s "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" at $20.3 million; Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin" at $9.7 million; and Matt Damon's "We Bought a Zoo" at $9.5 million.
