The Dark Knight Rises Wins Again, Total Recall Bombs at Box Office

by at . Comments

Movie goers this weekend proved they are not sick of The Dark Knight Rises. But they may be sick of remakes.

The final installment of Christopher Nolan's trilogy earned $36.4 million, enough to place it atop the box office for the third consecutive week. It has now garnered $354.6 million domestically in 17 days.

Go Batman!

In other movie news, Sony's remake of Total Recall - with Colin Farrell in the role Arnold Schwarzenegger made famous - did not make the major dent many expected.

It finished in second place with $26 million, which (adjusted for inflation) is nearly $20 million less than the original on its opening weekend.

Take a look at the top five below:

  1. The Dark Knight Rises: $36.4 million
  2. Total Recall: $26.0 million
  3. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days: $14.7 million
  4. Ice Age: Continental Drift: $8.4 million
  5. The Watch: $6.4 million
