What else has been incredibly impressive is Tom Cruise’s latest turn as Ethan Hunt. Since Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol opened it has racked up $78.6 million at the domestic box office.

On Sunday alone, Spielberg’s War Horse came in third, behind Ghost Protocol and the second Sherlock Holmes film. Since Spielberg’s War Horse debuted, it has also earned the rare high grade on CinemaScore -- a service that tracks audience opinion. The picture is currently holding fast at an A-.

Where War Horse will finish, time will tell. But at this rate, War Horse is quickly making it one of Spielberg’s most popular films (don’t miss our Top 10 Steven Spielberg movies!).
