Subscribe To Weekend Box Office: The Dark Knight Rises Again Updates
Two new movies hit theaters this weekend but both landed with rather unimpressive thuds. Both lost out to continuing champion The Dark Knight Rises and three week old Ice Age 4.

The Watch, a movie that took a bunch of funny people and showed just how unfunny they could be, drew little love from critics and little more from audiences. With just $13 million in sales it came in third place, a few hundred thousand behind Ice Age: Continental Drift. With a hefty cast to bank roll, the movie racked up a $70+ million production/marketing price tag, putting the movie on track to be a solid loss for Fox.

The well-past-its-prime Step Up franchise tried to re-ignite excitement with its fourth entry Step Up Revolution only to see it receive the worst ever opening for the series. With $11 million it was well behind the $15 million (Step Up 3-D), $18 million (Step Up 2 the Streets) and $20 million (Step Up) debuts of its predecessors.

The Dark Knight Rises continued a strong run in its second weekend, adding $64 million and falling just shy of $300 million with $289 million in total US sales. By comparison that's still less than The Dark Knight which had earned $313 million by the time it finished its second weekend.
