Weekend B.O. Aug.3-5 ('DKR' Beats 'Recall')

As expected, The Dark Knight Rises beat the action packed (but PG-13 tame), tedious and totally devoid of personality (compared to Paul Verhoeven's 1990 original) Total Recall, without a doubt, one of the least neccessary remakes in recent memory.

DKR

As expected, The Dark Knight Rises beat the action packed (but PG-13 tame), tedious and totally devoid of personality (compared to Paul Verhoeven's 1990 original) Total Recall, without a doubt, one of the least neccessary remakes in recent memory.

And the strong showing of DKR is perhaps an indication that people who stayed away from seeing the film because of the Colorado movie theater shootings, are now going to see it, and that it's getting repeat business as well.

Meanwhile both Magic Mike and Moonrise Kingdom are proving to be two of the real sleepers of the summer film season.

And the raunchy R rated comedy Ted is actually outgrossing DKR in many overseas markets.

As for Beasts of The Southern Wild, the film is continues to do solid business, moving up a notch to 12th place this week, expanding to 318 theaters, with a b.o. total just short of $6 million so far.

1) The Dark Knight Rises  WB  $36,440,000 Total: $354,638,000
