Honestly, its no surprise to me that once again, “The Dark Knight Rises” has reached the top spot at the box office this weekend. Despite the tragedy that has somewhat overshadowed the film, it still continues to bring movie goers to fill the seats. I have yet to get my butt to the theatre to check out the final installment in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. The Dark Knight managed to outshine two openers.

The Watch” brought in an estimated $13 million and edged in at number three this weekend just shy of second place held by family film, “Ice Age: Continental Drift.” Another opener this weekend that failed to make moves at the box office was “Step Up Revolution,” which opened to mixed review from critics. The fourth installment in this franchise is also in 3D. Check out the weekend’s box office results below.

Out of respect for the awful tragedy that took place at a screening of ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘, the box office numbers were not released until now. Given the buzz surrounding the film and the build up for it’s release, it is definitely no a surprise that ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ took the top spot at the box office.

The film brought in $160.9 million this weekend. This is the third largest unadjusted opening weekend gross on record, behind ‘The Avengers‘ and 2011′s ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2‘. If you don’t take into consideration ticket price inflation, The Dark Knight Rises opened slightly ahead of the $158.41 million start of 2008′s The Dark Knight. When you do factor ticket price inflation, it places sixth on the adjusted opening weekend list.

I still haven’t seen the film yet but I definitely want to. Did you see the film and if so what did you think? Were any of you even a little scared to go watch it in light of that happened? It may sound ridiculous, but I’ll admit there was a tiny bit of fear there for me… thinking about the “what if,” but of course as we know that is no way to live. Anyway, check out how the rest of the films faired this weekend below.

This weekend, the fourth installment of Ice Age opened in theaters and certainly succeeded in getting the nut at the box office. ‘Ice Age: Continental Drift‘ brought in an estimated $46 million this weekend and although it was the top film this weekend, it was slightly below expectations. This is the lowest opening for the franchise, with the original Ice Age opening with $46.3 million way back in 2002, without the 3D markup advantage. Some speculate that because ‘Brave‘ and ‘Madagascar 3‘ were still out in theaters, it did create some competition for this film.

No other films opened for wide release this weekend, and thus the top films at the box office consist of films that have already been out in theatres for a while. Savages, which had a week opening last weekend, dropped 45% this weekend. I’m surprised this film didn’t do better because it has so many good people in it! I’ll have to wait for it to come out on iTunes to see what the non-fuss is about.

‘The Amazing Spiderman’ Tops Box Office

In: Movies, Patrick

This weekend, ‘The Amazing Spiderman‘ topped the box office charts with an estimated $65 million. After six days since opening, that has put the film at about $140 million. Pretty impressive for a reboot in my opinion! The film centers on the romance between Andrew Garfield‘s character Peter Parker and college student Gwen Stacy, played by Emma Stone. Did any of you watch it? What’d you think?

Opening this weekend was the star-studded crime-thriller ‘Savages‘. The film came in fourth this weekend with an estimated $16.1 million. The cast includes Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively, Salma Hayek, John Travolta, Aaron Johnson, Uma Thurman, and more.

Katy Perry: Part Of Me‘ also opened in theatres this week and has brought in an estimated $10 million so far. Tyrell saw it the other day and quite liked it. Did any of you watch it or any other films this weekend? Check out the top 10 movies in theaters this weekend and how much they each brought in below.

Although both films did quite well, it seems as though more people were interested in cuddling up with a teddy bear for ‘Ted‘ than with male strippers for ‘Magic Mike‘. Both films opened in theatres this weekend taking the top two spots.

‘Ted’ opened with $54.1 million, making it the best opening for Universal Comedy for an original, non-sequel R-rated comedy – even better than ‘The Hangover‘, which opened $47.5 million). ‘Ted’, starring Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, and Seth MacFarlane tells the story of a guy named John Bennett whose teddy bear, Ted, comes to life after a childhood wish. The bear has been by his side ever since, but the friendship is put to the test when his girlfriend wants more from their relationship. Sounds cute/funny but I had no idea it would do so well!

‘Magic Mike’ brought it $39.1 million this weekend and has received good reviews. ‘Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection‘ and ‘People Like Us‘ also opened in theatres this weekend – one of them was a total dud. Find out which one by check out the Top 10 list below.

When it comes to weekend box office totals, you can’t mess with the power of a family film, especially when the mega powers of Disney and Pixar are behind it. Leading the way with it’s impressive opening weekend, the Scottish folklore tale titled “Brave” is estimated to bring in an impressive $66.2 million. “Madagascar 3” brought in an estimated $20.5 million on it’s third week at the box office and rounding out the top 3 is Tim Burton’s “Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter.”

Also opening this weekend was Focus’ “Seeking a Friend For The End of the World.” While I usually enjoy every film that Focus has to offer, it seems that many people passed on this softer, medium dramatic tale. Many critics blasted the non-chemistry between leads Steve Carrell and Keira Knightley. Check out the top ten box office estimates and let us know which movies you checked out this weekend!

This weekend, Adam Shankman’s new movie musical “Rock of Ages” hit theaters to mixed reviews from critics. While many praised it for it’s fun and quirky musical nature, others nailed it for it’s lack of content and soul. To those critics, I say “HELLO! It’s a musical!” I personally cannot wait to see Tom Cruise rock the stage as rock star Stacey Jaxx. Despite it’s high anticipation, the film couldn’t find it’s way to number one falling behind heavy hitters Madagascar 3 and Prometheus.

Another new film opening this weekend was Adam Sandler’s comedy, “That’s My Boy.” Despite the fully loaded casting including SNL’s latest send-off, Andy Samberg, they couldn’t manage to make a dent in the weekend’s box office results landing at #5 in the top ten. Performing just above them is the action packed Snow White and the Huntsman. Check out the weekend’s box office results below.

The early estimates are in for this weekend at the box office and it it is ‘Madascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted‘ that is taking the top spot with an estimated $60.5 million. The this third instalment of the series and is only slightly below what ‘Madagascar 2′ brought in. The film also boasts a great approval rating so word of mouth on the film is and will be great.

Even though a “family film” took the top spot, the highly anticipated R-Rated film ‘Prometheus‘ wasn’t too far behind, opening this weekend with an estimated $50 million. This film, starring Charlize Theron (whom I love and have personally dubbed to be the next Meryl Streep) has received good ratings and word of mouth as well.

Although now only in select theatres, ‘The Hunger Games‘ has now reached $400 million domestically since it opened, still trailing quite a ways behind ‘The Avengers‘. See how much the super hero film has brought in since opening and what other films made the top 10 list below. Also, find out what two movies I watched on iTunes this weekend as well!
