BATMAN-TOTAL-RECALL-FILM-BOX-OFFICE:Batman knocks down 'Total Recall' to win box office
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises" took the weekend box office title for a third time, beating back a challenge from science fiction remake "Total Recall."
"Dark Knight Rises" brought in an estimated $36.4 million from theaters in the United States and Canada, distributor Warner Bros said on Sunday. The movie is the third film in a popular trilogy starring Christian Bale as the caped crusader.
"Total Recall" finished in distant second place with $26 million from Friday through Sunday. The film stars Colin Farrell in a remake of a 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie.
The No. 3 spot went to family sequel "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days," which grabbed $14.7 million.
