The Dark Knight Rises continued to dominate the box office over the weekend, crossing the $350 million mark while Total Recall and Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3 had pretty mediocre openings.
The Dark Knight Rises continued to dominate the box office this weekend with another $64 million and putting it just shy of $300 million for it’s two weeks out.
There was no question if The Dark Knight Rises was going to be on the top of the charts for the weekend, the only question was how big of an opening it was going to have. The answer: third highest ever.
The weekend before the The Dark Knight Rises takes over the box office, Ice Age 4 was number one but it was not the greatest opening compared to previous Ice Ages and the other animated movies that have come out this year.
The Amazing Spider-Man dominated over the Fourth of July holiday but was down from the debuts of the previous Spidey trilogy.
With GI Joe: Retalliation out of the way, Ted managed to sweep in and have the highest opening weekend ever for an R rated comedy and the weekend as a whole was the best overall for June.
Animation continues to dominate the box office although Brave took over from two week champ, Madagascar 3.
Both of the new movies bombed at the box office this weekend, leaving the way wide open for Madagascar 3 to repeat and take the number one spot again.
The return of the Madagascar gang brought in slightly more money than the return of Ridley Scott to sci-fi over the weekend.
Snow White and the Huntsman took advantage of being the only new wide release and easily took the top spot away from MIB3 over the weekend.
