BOX OFFICE: THE DARK KNIGHT RISES #1 With $36.2M, TOTAL RECALL Stumbles With $26.5M
Deadline is reporting that this weekend's box office receipts are off by as much as twenty-five percent from a year ago. Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises came out on top, and Total Recall opened with a thud.
From the Aurora shooting to the Olympic games box office receipts of $120M are off by as much as twenty-five percent from this time a year ago.
Going into it's third weekend The Dark Knight Rises was expected to have to contend with Total Recall for the number one spot at the box office. After the dust has cleared Batman has come out on top with an estimated $36.2M, well ahead of Sony's Total Recall which is expected to pull in a dismal $26.5M. If these numbers don't miraculously improve the reboot of Arnold Schwarzenegger's 1990 science-fiction adventure film will most certainly struggle to make back it's $150M budget. If anything this weekend has proved once again that Colin Farrell can not carry a movie.
It isn't all bad news for Sony as The Amazing Spider-Man pulled in $4.5M this weekend pushing it's domestic take over $250M.
The Dark Knight Rises is now playing at your local theater. The film stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate.
