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: 'Dark Knight Rises' wins again with $64.1 million; nobody watches 'The Watch'

Alright, here are the facts about The Dark Knight Rises:

• Warner Bros.’ $250 million sequel is an utterly huge movie.
• It earned $64.1 million in its second weekend (a 60 percent drop).
• It has grossed $289.1 million after ten days.
• This total is less than the The Dark Knight had earned at the same point in its run ($313.8 million), and that’s fine.
• This total is also less than the The Avengers had earned at the same point in its run ($373.1 million), and that’s also fine.
• Overseas, the film has already grossed $248.2 million, and its headed for a finish between $900 million and $1 billion worldwide.

The reality is that it doesn’t matter if the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy beats any other film at the box office — The Dark Knight Rises is a truly gigantic hit that will have the suits at the studio very, very happy.

That said, the film is certainly performing below initial expectations. READ FULL STORY

For the second weekend in a row, The Dark Knight Rises will top the box office, but it’s falling much faster than industry insiders expected. Perhaps those Olympic opening ceremonies, which were watched by a record number of people, are to blame?

The $250 million Warner Brothers film dropped 76 percent from its first Friday to $18.1 million, which should lead to a $60 million weekend. After eight days, Rises has grossed $243.1 million total. For comparison, The Dark Knight fell 65 percent on its second Friday to $23.2 million, giving it an eight-day total of $261.8 million. That film went on to have a $75.2 million sophomore weekend.

Box office preview: How will 'The Dark Knight Rises' hold up in its second weekend?

Last weekend, a dark cloud hung over the box office after the tragedy in Aurora, Colo. rocked the country.

The Dark Knight Rises still managed a stunning $160.9 million opening weekend — the third best of all time — but most believe it could have finished with substantially more money had audiences not been avoiding the theater.

There’s definitely still some tension in the air this frame, but movie going is expected to return at least somewhat back to normal. Two new openers are hitting theaters — sci-fi comedy The Watch and dance sequel Step Up Revolution — but they won’t be any match for the second weekend of The Dark Knight Rises. Here’s how the box office may play out: READ FULL STORY

'The Watch' outtake reel: Ben Stiller has the butt of a 12-year-old girl, apparently -- NSFW VIDEO

As the sci-fi comedy The Watch nears its opening weekend this Friday, director Akiva Schaffer (Hot Rod) has released what he calls “an outtake reel” of NSFW moments and ad-libs from the film. Given star Vince Vaughn’s renown proclivity for improvisation, it inevitably includes an observation about costar Ben Stiller’s posterior that makes one wonder how Vaughn could know about the thing he claims to know about. Check out the trailer below:  READ FULL STORY

'The Watch': Ben Stiller comedy gets new name, red-band trailer

Back in March, Fox pulled the trailer and poster from Ben Stiller’s summer film Neighborhood Watch from theaters in Florida, following the aftermath of Trayvon Martin’s death in the state. (The 17-year-old Martin was shot and killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.) But now the film is also getting a nationwide facelift. With the release of the red band trailer for the movie comes a new name — The Watch.

Starring Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and Richard Ayoade, The Watch centers on a group of foul-mouthed volunteers, who find themselves battling aliens while making pithy sexual remarks. Watch the seriously not-safe-for-work trailer below.
