Box office report: 'Dark Knight Rises' soars to $36.4 mil; 'Total Recall' barely matches original's debut


A sci-fi reboot and kiddie sequel were no match for the third weekend of Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster Batman finale.

The Dark Knight Rises led the box office for a third weekend in a row, grossing $36.4 million and giving Warner Bros.’ $250 million-budgeted Batman sequel $354.6 million domestically after 17 days. The film enjoyed a healthy 41 percent decline from its previous frame, and if its weekend estimate holds up, Rises will have notched a slimmer third weekend drop than The Dark Knight, which fell 43 percent to $42.7 million during its third weekend, thereby lifting its total to $393.8 million.

Box office report: 'Ice Age: Continental Drift' wins the weekend with $46 million

Spider-Man has been knocked off…and not by The Lizard.

Fox’s Ice Age: Continental Drift, the fourth film in the animated franchise, won the weekend with an estimated $46 million opening at the box office. The family-friendly flick bowed in 3,881 theaters and earned an $11, 853 per-theater average over the Friday-to-Sunday period. The film has already made roughly seven times that much in foreign territories. Compared to the previous installments in the Ice Age series, Continental Drift fell smack dab between the second and third film’s openings. And thanks to an bullish “A-” grade from CinemaScore, Continental Drift should get some strong word of mouth and hold up well with younger audiences and their parents.


Box office update: 'Ice Age' freezes the competition with $16.5 million on Friday

No surprises here. The weekend’s only wide debut, Fox’s Ice Age: Continental Drift, was the top dog at the box office on Friday, earning $16.5 million. That solid bow puts the fourth chapter in the studio’s animated sequel on pace to not only win the weekend, but also to finish in the high-40s, assuming parents don’t mind keeping the kids indoors on a summer Saturday. Assuming those predictions are correct, Continental Drift should land between the second and third installments in the franchise, but fall short of its animated summer compadres, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted and Brave, which both finished their first weekends with $60 million or better. But that’s only part of the picture, Ice Age has already proven that it’s a hit overseas, where it’s on track to collect an additional $250 million by the time the weekend comes to a close.
