“The Boston gig has been cancelled … I wouldn’t worry about it though, it’s not a big college town.”

So, that “Total Recall” remake did not do all that well this weekend, earning just $26 million to open in second place. In full spin mode, Sony (a) said that was pretty good, considering they were expecting it to make somewhere around $20 million, and (b)  “it’s always been made for the world stage, and we’re off to a good start opening in smaller markets this week.

Meanwhile, “The Dark Knight Rises” made another $36.4 million, suggesting that there’s quite a bit of cash to be made in those smaller markets, if you have a movie people want to see.

Oh, well.
