BOX OFFICE: THE DARK KNIGHT RISES And TOTAL RECALL To Battle For #1 This Weekend
Well, it's fair to say that not many people will have seen this coming! Despite analysts predicting yesterday that Total Recall looked set to hit the #3 spot at the North American box office, VERY early estimates now have it as going head-to-head with The Dark Knight Rises for #1.
Deadline reports that Len Wiseman's Total Recall remake looks set to give The Dark Knight Rises a run for its money at the North America box office this weekend as matinee trends indicate that the weekend will pan out far differently than previously reported (read details on that by clicking HERE). Total Recall is on course to gross between $9.5 million - $12.5 millon today and $26 million - $32 million for the weekend (that's an awful lot higher than the prediction which had it on course for a paltry $20 million opening for third place behind Diary Of A Wimpy Kid 3: Dog Days). Meanwhile, Christopher Nolan's epic finale to his Batman trilogy is predicted to have a weekend total of $27 million - $33 million. A slightly better estimate, but a VERY close contest between the two films.
