Dark Knight Rises Wards Off Total Recall Remake at Weekend Box Office
Total Recall matched its predecessor, but it couldn't muster much more at the weekend box office.
The remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger film, this time starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel, grossed an estimated $26 million in its debut weekend, Box Office Mojo reports. That's just $500,000 better than the original's opening weekend, without including ticket inflation. Total Recall came in second to The Dark Knight Rises, which reigned supreme for a third week with $36.4 million.
