Friday Box Office Report: 'Dark Knight' Holds Off 'Total Recall'
"Total Recall debuted to an estimated $9.2 million from 3,601 locations on Friday, which is not a very good start by any stretch of the imagination. Among Philip K. Dick adaptations, that's above the much more modest The Adjustment Bureau ($6.73 million) but noticeably behind Minority Report ($11.7 million), which debuted a full ten years ago. It's also a tad above the original Total Recall's $8 million opening day, but with 22 years of ticket price inflation that's nothing to get too excited over. Distributor Sony Pictures is expecting between $25 and $26 million for the three-day frame."
"Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days snagged an estimated $5.85 million from 3,391 locations. In comparison, the previous two Wimpy Kid movies opened to $7.4 million and $7.3 million."
