With two newcomers this week, Batman’s run at theatres comes to a halt after three weeks at the top of the box office. Given “The Dark Knight” earned $26m in week four, it’s no surprise that the next big anticipated summer film took reign over “The Dark Knight Rises” this week.
Will Ferrell made a comeback at theatres this week after his last comedy “Casa de mi Padre,” which earned $8m worldwide.
Out of the top 10 this week is Disney and Pixar’s “Brave.” After an eight-week run, the film has grossed $374.4m.
It’s a tie for tenth place this week. Here’s this week’s biggest winners and losers at the box office.
10. “The Watch“ drops five spots and 66.3 per cent at theatres to tie with the webbed hero at $2.2m even.
9. “Step Up Revolution“ has yet to break its budget of $33m in the U.S. In week three, the dance film earned $2.8m bringing it to a domestic total of $30.2m.
7. The fourth instalment of “Ice Age” falls three spots this week earning $6.7m.
6. After one week in theatres, the “Total Recall” remake featuring Colin Farrell drops four spots and 68.3 per cent earning $8.1m. The film, which cost an estimated $125m to produce, has grossed $71.6m to date.
5. “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days” drops two spots this week with $8.2m.
2. Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis‘ “The Campaign” had a big opening weekend earning $27.4m. The political comedy didn’t beat out “Anchorman” ($28.4m), “The Other Guys,” ($35.5m), or “Step Brothers” ($30.9m).
1. “The Bourne Legacy” performed as expected with $40.2m. Compared with earlier flicks in the franchise, “The Bourne Ultimatum” and “The Bourne Supremacy” earned $69.2m and $52.5m respectively opening weekend. This is still a rise over the $27.1m grossed by the original “Bourne Identity” its first weekend.
