The Dark Knight Rises tops box office for third weekend in a row
Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Sunday, August 5, 2012
The latest Bat-film beat the remake of Total Recall this weekend at theaters. For the third weekend in a row The Dark Knight Rises was the number one movie in theaters, taking in an estimated $36.4 million dollars. That brings the movie's total domestic gross up to $354.6 million dollars. With another $378 million bucks earned from international venues, TDKR has a worldwide gross of $733 million dollars.
Len Wiseman's remake of Total Recall fell into the number two slot with a so-so gross of $26 million dollars. The movie is estimated to have cost its makers $125 million dollars, so a showing in the black for the new Recall is unlikely to come just from its domestic ticket sales.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days continued to show that this lesser-budgeted movie series is a smart business to be in. Based on the hit series of kids books, Dog Days opened with $14.7m in ticket sales.
Ice Age: Continental Drift dropped two places to #4 with $8.4m in new ticket sales. The picture's four-week total is $131.8 million dollars.
The Watch is down to #5 ($6.3m new, $25.3m total).
Ted is down one spot to #6 ($5.4m new, and a colossal $203.4m total).
Step Up Revolution is at #7 in its second weekend in release ($5.3m new, $23 mil total).
The Amazing Spider-Man is at #8 ($4.3m new, $250 million dollars total).
Brave is at #9 ($2.8m new, $223m total).
And at #10 is one of the summer's sweetest success stories, Steven Soderberg's Magic Mike ($1.3m new, $110.9m total).
