Weekend Box-Office: August 3-5, 2012

Aug. 5, 2012by: Dave Davis

And still The Dark Knight Rises!

Batman is triumphant at the box office for his third straight weekend as THE DARK KNIGHT RISES again takes the #1 spot with another $36.4 million.

The Olympics still seem to be biting into attention that might otherwise be spent in theaters, and while RISES ultimately may not quite reach the heights of THE DARK KNIGHT's $533M domestic total, it collected more than enough to keep director Len Wiseman's slick remake of TOTAL RECALL away from the top.

Colin Farrell's PG-13 sci-fi mindjob only managed a $26 million debut (and some apathetic critical and audience response). The Arnie-free version of the Philip K. Dick story will have to make some hefty bank internationally to get near its official $125M budget (unofficially reported as high as $200M).

The weekend's other new release, DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: DOG DAYS, came in third with $14.7 million. The third movie in the series adapted from the popular books made a fair bit less than the openings of the original DIARY OF A WIMPY KID and its sequel, which started with $22.1M and $23.7M respectively. Both of those movies did have the benefit of opening in March, away from big blockbuster material (although the second movie opened against SUCKER PUNCH and still won the weekend).

After the top 3, things drop to the single millions as ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT again comes in ahead of last week's new but ill-fated Ben Stiller/Vince Vaughn reunion THE WATCH.

But one of the summer's surprise champions is a cuddly bear with a foul mouth, Seth MacFarlane's TED.

The R-rated comedy crossed the $200 million mark this weekend, making it star Mark Wahlberg's biggest movie. And it's holding place on the chart better than some movies that opened after it, including THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, STEP UP REVOLUTION and SAVAGES. And as it opens internationally, TED is even beating THE DARK KNIGHT RISES in some locations and has pulled in another $77M from overseas audiences -- and it hasn't even opened in all major territories yet. (Between TED and my drastic overestimation of ROCK OF AGES' performance, my chances in the JoBlo.com staff summer box office prediction contest are pretty much killed...)

Wes Anderson's MOONRISE KINGDOM makes a rare non-showing this week, but the movie has made over $40M in its nearly three months of release. The indie darling BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD is slowly expanding, but Matthew McConaughey's KILLER JOE and the Andy Samberg/Rashida Jones romcom CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER had the weekend's strongest per-screen averages in their limited releases.

Next weekend brings in Jeremy Renner as the latest rogue agent in THE BOURNE LEGACY, Will Ferrell and Zack Galifianakis compete for office in the comedy THE CAMPAIGN, Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep spice up their romance in HOPE SPRINGS, and random stunts are attempted in NITRO CIRCUS: THE MOVIE 3D.

Happy to see TDKR still on top. What I am very interested in and baffled by are the overseas numbers for Ice Age. It's unbelievable!! Gross overseas, the original was at 54%, then it jumped to 70%, then around 78% and the latest sits around 82% and the actual grossing numbers just blow me away. Didn't Dawn of the Dinosaur's overseas gross of 690ml+ make it the highest or second highest overseas in 2009? Now Continental Drift's overseas is at 584 and growing. It has beat Madagascar, Brave

I just don't understand the massive draw of these films compared to other animated ones.

I finally saw Ted and I loved it, the cameos were terrific and just an overall fun time was had.

*Minor spoiler*
Love the scene at the party where you hear Ted saying to someone, 'I don't sound anything like Peter Griffin'

Apparently someone below said he's glad Nolan's done with the franchise (didn't read, too lazy to scroll). To him I say, wait till you see the next film in 2016. You'll wish Nolan never left.

TOTAL RECALL

Jessica Biel and Bryan Cranston are bad luck at the box office. Sad waste of talent if the movie wasn't really that good.

The truth lies somewhere in the middle with The Dark Knight Rises.

I find it sad that people feel the need to either love the movie unconditionally to the point of denial, or hate it with the fiery passion of a thousand burning suns.

For all Nolan got wrong with his trilogy (I have issues with all three films) it is almost unimaginable at this point that anyone would argue that he didn't get way more right.

It's irresponsible to make statements like "I'm glad Nolan is done with Batman so they can finally do the character justice" when all we had before

It's irresponsible to make statements like "I'm glad Nolan is done with Batman so they can finally do the character justice" when all we had before Nolan was a Batman that paid for things with a bat credit card.

Nolan tried something different and, for the most part, he succeeded. The casting was PERFECTION across the board and for that alone we should be grateful. His attempts to meld the real world with the comic world didn’t always work (I take particular issue with his interpretation of the costume, and the lack of gadgets that Batman has at his disposal – he has the belt, but doesn’t really use anything in it).

People held The Dark Knight up as a beacon of perfection in a world of mediocrity, at least as far as superhero films are concerned. I have long felt that, removing Heath Ledger's performance, you're left with a long, overly-complex and exposition-heavy film that can be hard to get through. In other words: it's not perfect, not by a long shot.

And that's fine. I still love the film and think it gets more right than it gets wrong. My problems with the film don't make me put it in the SHIT pile, right next to Cheaper by the Dozen 2.

It's the same with The Dark Knight Rises. You're fooling yourself if you think it's a perfect film –purposefully cutting yourself off from all opposing points of view and healthy discussion and sticking your fingers in your ears defiantly.

The film has massive issues of logic that move by at the speed of a freight train.

Is it still a damn good, enjoyable, well-crafted film with an amazing cast acting their balls off?

You bet your ass it is.

Should we be grateful we got such a complex, serious and expertly-handled trilogy of films based on a comic book character that had previously been relegated to fighting Jim Carrey in spandex?

Yes. We most definitely should.

Everything you says makes perfect sense,while I love all 3 movies, they are very flawed. What movie isn't really? Even the so-called Star Wars & other great classics are not without flaws. What I also can't stand is people who have to find logic in everything, why this or how that or when this happened. Blah Blah Blah. Now back to the real world it truly gets to me when people are either blaming the colorado shootings for TDKR not grossing even more. Are you freaking kidding me? Even blaming

Even blaming the Olympics for the grosses, HELLO they show the better evenst at NIGHT, you can go see a movie during the day. Anyway don't get me started, I'm just bored at work and felt like ranting. oh & BTW people, TDKR never had to gross as much as TDK to be considered a success. Let's be honest Ledger's death was the ONLY reason TDK grossed so much. Overall I feel these are the most successful of all the Batman films. I for one am happy to get to enjoy these for many years to come.

2 plot holes that noticed in the TDKR

1) Batman is gone the same time Bruce Wayne hasn't been seen in 8 years, yet no one could connect the dots there?

2) Batman escapes the prison on the other side of the world and then suddenly shows up to Gotham City undetected which, by the way, is on LOCKDOWN from the most brutal villain Gotham has ever seen? How did he get in if nobody could get out?

Other than that...t still was a good movie but the Dark Knight was better ten fold.

1) I didn't get the impression that he was gone the entire eight years. They did say he was involved in the fusion project, and, if I remember correctly, that was three years before the events of this movie. I think Bruce disappeared after the failure of this project.

2) We know that it took at least two weeks for him to return to Gotham, since he leaves the prison after Lucius Fox says that there are only 23 days left before the nuclear explosion. Therefore he had time to travel to

Therefore he had time to travel to Gotham. As for entering Gotham, stealth was one of the skills he learned while a member of the league of shadows. Besides, there were people who managed to enter Gotham, or did you miss the scene where some outside forces came in to help the citizens of Gotham? The lockout was mainly to prevent people from leaving. Would you have preferred if we actually saw him enter the city? It seems to me that a man like Bruce Wayne, with extensive knowledge of Gotham, could find a way to return. Even if it is not explained, that doesn't make it a plot hole.

how about having Bruce Wayne be so dumb that he falls for this stupid plan? Or that Bruce Wayne threatens to kill Bane? These are specific characteristics of the central character which Nolan disregards. I am a Nolan fan, hell i love all his movies, even this one, but this one is the worst of the lot and far from perfect.

Studios shouldn't release anything else for a month if they want to make a profit.....it's not even fair when a Christopher Nolan movie comes out.

TED

Im a batman geek for life, so its hard for me to admit Avengers was the best movie of the year, that being said TED was great, Spiderman was ok and i really enjoyed prometheus i havent seen recall yet but i will, Batman gross has also been affected by the shootings and the Olympics so the movie itself will have legs, should reach about 450 million domestically, JOBLO rules

Good for TDKR finishing in the top spot once again. It should pass $400 mil & hopefully The Hunger Games. I guess when it comes to Total Recall it's a mixed bag so I might just wait to DVD/blu-ray. Probably with the exception of The Avengers, this has been one strange summer. Some surprise bombs & hits. The fact Ted grossed over $200 & is Wahlberg's biggest hit now just mind boggles me. The fact Prometheus underwhelmed (i liked it btw) & the Spider-Man was actually decent. SO ya I think

I will admit when I'm wrong. I quoted earlier that TDKR would struggle to make $300 million. Well I was wrong. As far as the comparisons to storylines, TDKR was a combination of the Bane storyline mixed with the No Man's Land storyline. The court scene was taken right out of No Man's Land, except it was Two - Face who was the judge. The isolation of Gotham, and so on were all right out of No Man's Land. Which was a good story to read.

Dark Knight Rises..

The only reason Dark Knight Rises is making so much money is because lots of people go see it 3-4-5 times.. Which doesn't make sense to see it so many times, since no matter how many times people see it, it's not going to explain any of the gigantic plot holes and illogical stupidity of the characters' actions.. The story is complete garbage, and it's a good thing Nolan is finally done destroying Batman.

I have to agree with Khorne666, because once you see the flaws there is no going back. You can either have bat goggles on and think it's a masterpiece or face the truth that this movie has some glaring issues beyond the acting and plot holes. Everything was just okay, down to the finale but if you can look past the generic action and horrible changes to the each characters background then buy it on Blu-Ray!

Don't knock someone for having a keen eye for storytelling and acting, it's getting a little ridiculous with the amount of threats being thrown around for a movie that will be forgotten in a year.

I can't wait till Joblo does the inevitable UN-popular opinion article, I want to see what they have to say. I personally loved cat woman and understood every line Bane said, yet i found that the changes made to every characters background was unnecessary and boring. The pacing was off, and batman couldn't keep his mouth closed for the 15 minutes that he's in this film. Also this movie has no detective work, or anything the real batman would do. Instead it ends with a generic ticking time bomb and generic "He survived" ending.

I hope they tone down the realistic vision of Batman for the reboot and combine with Arkham City Batman. I need MORE DETECTIVE WORK BATMAN! haha

Disappointing hearing that from someone who has a Fox Hound logo as their avatar pic as I also love MGS.

now i wont go as far as saying Nolan destroyed Batman, just that this movie destroyed all that he made batman to be. Alot of the graphic novels have similar plot points as far as Bruce Wayne/Batman resting for a while, but what is offensive in this movie, is what is offensive in any one's "re-imagining" of iconic characters, they stray too far from the source ( Singer is horribly guilty here). In none of the graphic novels has Bruce Wayne ever wanted to kill anyone and expressed it. In none of

I enjoyed the first 2 movies, they are examples of great story telling, but i look at them as graphic novels, "Rises" cannot even be that, because Nolan strayed so far from the mythos that it is no longer a "Batman" movie.

Total Recall

I hope this is an indicator that a recognizable name, heavy use of CGI, and a PG13 rating don't always equal box office success. I believe it's half of the opening of Prometheus - another summer scifi movie, but carrying an R. It looked terrible from the get-go anyway. How exactly does a movie that originally got an X rating get a PG13 remake?

Good job to Dark Knight Rises, I'm planning to see it again tonight actually. I'm not surprised the Total Recall remake didn't do well. Len Wisemen has been mainly a mediocre director. As for Colin Farrell, I like him best when he's either doing some comedy (Horrible Bosses; In Bruges) or an antagonist (Fright Night, Minority Report); as the straight leading man he's not as interesting.

I do think this will be the last week TDKR is #1, b/c I'm guessing Bourne Legacy will beat it even though

Bourne will definitely take Dark Knight's spot this weekend. It's down to 30 mil which is great but it's #1 spot is over. If Bourne doesn't take it, Expendables will. Saw it for the 3rd time yesterday and it was still packed, but it's the start of it's box office decline.

I dont think Bourne will I havent met anyone who has been excited about the new movie I love the first 3 but the new one looks terrible not because of Damon but because it really does nothing for me. Expendables may top Batman only because people are excited to see Arnolds Credited return on screen and Bamtan will die down by then I think.
