Movies of the week
As expected, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ continues its ascent at the box office, with a third week earning of $36.4 million. ‘Total’ Recall came close to it with $26 million, but to say the truth that you cannot call close competition.
Although ‘Total Recall’ has emerged as an undisputed hit, it’s not made on the scale or the emotions of Dark Knight Rises to topple it in the mullah raking business. Look around, viewer nostalgia at is very peak is saying a final goodbye to this exclusive Batman movie series.
‘Step Up Revolution’ has been close to a disappointment with $ 5.7 million to show off for the audience response it has garnered over the last week. If skeptics are correct, its earnings will dip further. Critics have rated it as a confused mash-up of ideas, rather than an enchanting dance based movie.
On the other hand, ‘Ted’ is still pulling crowds to the screens , grossing $5.5 million. Seth Mcfarlene’s uninhibited presentation of humor has rubbed its magic on the viewers.
14.7 million dollars amassed by ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days indicate a promising future ahead for this flick. The declining profits of ‘The Amazing Spiderman’ stand at $4.3 million this weekend. ‘The Watch’, which was taunted as a novelty-rich movie that would keep us on the tenterhooks and titillate our minds, could only pocket 6.35 million.
The overall picture of U.S. box office has been grim. As of now, The ‘Dark Knight Rises’ and ‘Total Recall’ are the only face savers for the movie industry.
We can look up to better things over this week with much-awaited movies such as Bourne Legacy and Freelancers attempting to replace the depression at the box office with a boom of quality cinema.
