Weekend Box Office: Batman Still on top!
The box office had a lot of competition this weekend with the Olympics on TV, but plenty of folks still made it out to the movies. The big opening this week was supposed to be the “Total Recall” remake… but Batman still sits atop the weekend box office take.
The Dark Knight Rises
For the third week in a row, "The Dark Knight Rises" was the most watched movie at theaters. DKR has now taken in over $350 million!
Colin Farrell should've been the belle of the ball this weekend as the "Total Recall" remake debuted, but a disappointing $26 million opening week leaves producers second-guessing the remake of the much beloved Schwarzenegger film.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days
Another movie that debuted this week is the third installment of the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" franchise. The $14 million take was half of what the previous two films hauled in on their opening weeks.
Ice Age: Continental Drift
The fourth "Ice Age" movie came in fourth place at the box office. If you're counting, that's well over $130 million made for this film so far, at the theaters.
Not many have watched "The Watch." Poor reviews have kept this film from making the big bucks despite a cast of comedy all-stars. That brings the disappointing total haul to $25 million so far in what can only be described as a box office bomb for Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn.
