‘The Dark Knight Rises' #1 on Tuesday with $4.67 Million

on August 08, 2012 by Daniel Garris

Warner's The Dark Knight Rises grossed $4.67 million on Tuesday to lead the daily box office for a 19th consecutive day. The third installment of Christopher Nolan's superhero trilogy fell 1 percent from Monday, which did represent the day's poorest daily hold among wide releases. Compared to last Tuesday, The Dark Knight Rises was down 47 percent. The Dark Knight Rises has grossed $363.33 million in 19 days. That leaves the film $36.67 million away from reaching the $200 million domestic milestone and places it 10 percent behind the $405.70 million 19-day gross of 2008's The Dark Knight.

IMAX grosses were responsible for $0.723 million (15.5 percent) of the total Tuesday take for The Dark Knight Rises. Thus far IMAX grosses have totaled $49.56 million, which represents 13.6 percent of the film's total domestic gross.

Sony's Total Recall held steady in second place with $3.18 million. The sci-fi remake starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel was up an encouraging 6 percent over Monday's performance. Total Recall has grossed $31.76 million through its first five days in theatres, which is in line with expectations, but is also soft given the film's price-tag. The film is currently running 7.5 percent ahead of the $29.55 million five-day start of this year's Underworld Awakening and 29 percent behind the $44.96 million five-day start of last year's Cowboys & Aliens.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days continued to stabilize on Tuesday by grossing $2.29 million to remain in third. The third installment of Fox's family film franchise was up a healthy 16 percent over Monday. Grosses for Dog Days have clearly been spread out thus far, with weekday holds being relatively stronger than weekend holds. With a five-day start of $18.89 million, Dog Days is running 28 percent behind the $26.16 million five-day start of last year's Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules.
