Weekend Box Office Report: Batman Crushes ‘Total Recall’

Box Office Report: The Dark Knight Dominates
Warner Bros.

Hey there, 'Total Recall.' You know how you were supposed to be pretty big movie? Well, hopefully you're sitting down because, well...you're not. You see, there's this little thing called 'The Dark Knight Rises' that isn't a remake of a much-beloved film and it doesn't star Colin Farrell and people actually seem to generally kinda' like it. Yeah, sorry buddy. You didn't stand a chance.

The Dark Knight Rises’ brought closure to Christopher Nolan’s vision of the Batman, which began with ‘Batman Begins’ and extended through ‘The Dark Knight.’ But it also created a gaping hole in the Batman landscape, as fans of the Caped Crusader wonder what they’re going to look forward to now that Nolan’s passion project has come to a close.

Can Superhero Movies Bring Back the “Too” Sequel?

Warner Bros./Marvel Studios

Looking back on the 2012 summer movie season so far, it’s the superhero titles that are most notable, both in terms of box office and critical attention. And the big three, ‘The Avengers,’ ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ are all quite interesting in terms of their context within their respective franchises.

One is a new kind of sequel that intersects and interconnects four other series, and which will spawn a similarly extended sequel of its own; another is a mostly redundant reboot; and the last is the third installment in a contained trilogy that potentially could hatch a spin-off or prequel or some other kind of follow up that isn’t a direct continuation of the primary hero.

Following those films, we had a crazy idea for both the title and direction for Marvel mega movie’s sequel: ‘The Avengers Too.’

Weekend Box Office Report: Playing Catch-Up With ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

Weekend Box Office: Dark Knight Rises
Warner Bros.

Since the box office numbers from last week were not formally released until after the weekend passed, we need to play a quick game of catch-up with 'The Dark Knight Rises.' The third and final of Christopher Nolan's Batman movies opened to $160 million, a number that is staggering, but not record breaking. Did it even stand a chance of breaking the $200 million mark and challenging 'The Avengers' for highest opening weekend of all time? Did the tragic events in Aurora, Colorado have an adverse effect on the opening gross? To that second question: yes. To that first question: no.

Retro Rental: Need a Laugh? We Prescribe ‘What’s Up, Doc?’

Retro Rental: 'What's Up, Doc?'
Warner Bros.

I'm lucky. I'm lucky I get to write this, and I'm lucky you chose to read it. You like movies, and these have been a rough couple days for anyone who likes movies, because it's been a rough couple days for everyone. Last week, I filed a column about how 'The Dark Knight Rises,' with its big action and urban politics, wouldn't make a bad double bill with 'The Battle of Algiers.' And waking up Friday to the news, I didn't much care about that article or any article about Batman. I doubt you did either.

Joker Dark Knight Rises
Warner Bros.

It was fairly obvious very early on that there would be no Joker in 'The Dark Knight Rises' and in the final version of the movie there isn't even a mention of the character in the film. So where is The Joker during the events of 'The Dark Knight Rises?' We may have an official answer.
