The Dark Knight Dominates

As expected, “The Dark Knight Rises” trounced all comers to hold the top spot at the box office for a second weekend, earning $64 million and landing well ahead of “Ice Age: Continental Drift” and “The Watch”, which were jockeying for second place with about $13 million apiece.

(I’d expect “The Watch” to drop down to third when final figures are released later today; the 3D premiums on the “Ice Age” sequel are sure to nudge it ahead, even if they are predominantly for children’s admissions.)

Further down, “Step Up Revolution” opened in fourth place with $11.8 million, and “Ted” took fifth with $7.4 million — ahead of “The Amazing Spider-Man”, which had to settle for sixth place and $6.8 million.

Guess all the superhero dollars were still pointed at Batman …
