Box office preview: 'The Bourne Legacy' and 'The Campaign' duke it out

After a full three weeks atop the chart The Dark Knight Rises will likely descend a few spots this weekend due to the arrival of The Bourne Legacy and The Campaign.

The two male-driven tentpoles are looking to make a big splash, while fellow newcomer Hope Springs, which debuted on Wednesday, will likely make smaller waves. Here’s how the box office might shake out:

1. The Bourne Legacy – $37 million

Universal spent $125 million on this sequel, which has Jeremy Renner taking over the franchise from Matt Damon. Although Renner’s profile was certainly raised by his presence in The Avengers and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, he’s not a proven box office draw on his own, and fans who loved the pairing of Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass (both of whom are out) may stay away. Thus, it’s likely that Legacy will start off with about half of what 2007′s The Bourne Ultimatum opened with ($69.3 million), but the franchise has ample credibility working in its favor. Action fans should turn out in large enough numbers to give the film a $37 million debut. READ FULL STORY

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 update: 'Dark Knight Rises' leads Friday with $10.4 million; 'Total Recall' at No. 2

Make it three weeks in a row for Bruce Wayne!

The Dark Knight Rises once again topped the box office on Friday, grossing $10.4 million — a healthy 45 percent decline from its previous Friday haul, when the film dropped a somewhat alarming 76 percent. Rises should earn about $36 million over the weekend, which would lift its domestic total to $354 million.

In second place, Sony’s rebooted Total Recall, which stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, and Jessica Biel, earned $9.2 million, and it may finish the frame with a soft $25 million — a bit less than the $25.5 million opening for the original Total Recall (you know, the one with Ah-nold) back in 1990. Ouch. Despite reports that the reboot carried a $200 million budget, Sony claims it spent $125 million on the picture.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days took third place on Friday, but it notched the weakest first Friday of the franchise with $5.9 million. The original 2010 Diary grossed $7.4 million on its opening day, and finished the weekend with $22.1 million. Last year’s sequel, Rodrick Rules, started with $7.3 million on the way to a $23.8 million debut. Dog Days, which cost Fox $22 million to produce, will likely earn a not-totally-wimpy $18 million in its opening frame.

Rounding out the Top 5 were two other Fox films, Ice Age: Continental Drift and The Watch, which grossed $2.5 million and $1.9 million on Friday, respectively. Ice Age may find another $9 million. The Watch, in just its second weekend, will earn an awful $6 million.

1. The Dark Knight Rises – $10.4 million
2. Total Recall – $9.2 million
3. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days – $5.9 million
4. Ice Age: Continental Drift – $2.5 million
5. The Watch – $1.9 million

'Total Recall' Comic-Con panel: Colin Farrell talks filling Arnold's shoes, and a neat homage to the 1990 version

The Project: Total Recall

The Panel: Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston, Jessica Biel, director Len Wiseman

The Big Revelations: With the film heading to theaters in exactly a month, there wasn’t much more to reveal that hasn’t already been revealed. But there were a few interesting tidbits featured in the footage screened. So…

Footage Screened: Wiseman unveiled a six-minute sizzle reel, which was essentially an expanded version of the most recent trailer. But I did pick out two key new moments: One, after Colin Farrell’s Douglas Quaid is plunged into his Rekall-driven spy adventure, he realizes he has to get rid of his phone, since that’s how he’s being tracked. One problem: It’s inside his hand.

And two: READ FULL STORY

'Total Recall' trailer: Three-breasted mutant alert! Three-breasted mutant alert!

Finally! We’d heard reports that it was real, that it was actually happening. But in the latest trailer for Total Recall, we finally get to see the three-breasted mutant woman for ourselves.

Of course, the mythic figure harkens back to the 1990 adaptation of the head-squeezing Philip K. Dick sci-fi story that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger. Is the new version better? Welllll, this isn’t a red band trailer, so final judgment will likely have to wait until after the film hits theaters Aug. 3. But have a look for yourself: READ FULL STORY

CinemaCon 2012: Will 'Total Recall' remake feature woman with three boobs?

There are a lot of questions about the upcoming Total Recall remake.

Will Colin Farrell be able to fill the action-hero shoes of Arnold Schwarzenegger? How closely will the remake stick to the original Philip K. Dick story, and how much will it take from the 1990 movie version? Can Kate Beckinsale be as alluring (and duplicitous) as Sharon Stone?

Most of that can only be answered when the film finally debuts on Aug. 3, but footage previewed by Sony Pictures at CinemaCon tonight did answer the question already posed in our headline.

'Total Recall' trailer: Kate Beckinsale vs. Jessica Biel...TO THE DEATH!!!

The full trailer for this August’s vaguely anticipated Total Recall remake hit the Internet yesterday. The plot outline remains roughly the same as the outlandish 1990 classic: An everyman feels dissatisfied with his perfect life and is haunted by dreams of a more exciting existence, so he visits his friendly neighborhood memory implant service. Tonally, though, this new Recall suggests a futuristic Bourne, with Colin Farrell suddenly discovering a remarkable array of secret-agent Krav Maga skills. Also, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel get into a fight, and every time they punch each other, it sounds like a metal fist punching a mushroom cloud. Also, John Cho and Bryan Cranston both wear wigs. Curiously, there is still no sign of the three-breasted mutant prostitute. READ FULL STORY

'Total Recall' trailer teaser: Flying cars and angry Beckinsale

Colin-Farell

This Sunday, the trailer for the upcoming Total Recall remake will hit Apple Trailers. In anticipation of that blessed event, which has now ruined your plans for the weekend, Columbia has released a 30-second teaser for the trailer. First impressions: It looks like a less candy-colored Fifth Element, Kate Beckinsale looks angry, and in just 30 seconds the teaser fits in over a dozen Inception foghorn sounds, which is surely a new record. Wouldn’t it be great if someone made a whole movie where the soundtrack was just Inception foghorns?

Alas, for fans of the original, nowhere in these 30 seconds is there a sighting of the long-promised three-breasted mutant prostitute, but we’ll keep hoping that the movie finds room for the three-breasted mutant prostitute, mostly because it gives us the chance to write the words “three-breasted mutant prostitute,” which is a phrase we never get to use when we write about The Hunger Games.
