The Weekend Winner is a weekly update here on Caught on Set. Every Monday we will post pictures from the set of the movie that wins the box office battle over the weekend.
No surprise this week as The Dark Knight Rises once again won the box office battle over the weekend. The Caped Crusader pulled in a very impressive $64 million during it's second weekend in theaters. From Boxofficemojo.com:
1 The Dark Knight Rises $64,075,000
2 Ice Age: Continental Drift $13,300,000
3 The Watch $13,000,000
4 Step Up Revolution $11,800,000
5 Ted $7,353,000
The biggest surprise to me is that The Watch made so little money after all of the advertising they did leading up to the release date. It had to be very disappointing to make less money in your debut weekend than an animated film that is the 4th in it's series and in it's third week in theaters. I guess not too many people like "skinny" Jonah Hill in their movies.
