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.

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.
