Even with Sony’s Total Recall remake now in the mix, it looks like The Dark Knight Rises will have no trouble holding on to number one bragging rights for a third straight weekend. The trouble is, with numbers this low, no one has any real reason to brag. TDKR earned an estimated $10.4 million on Friday towards what should equal $35 million this weekend. That means trouble for Sony. The studio’s Total Recall remake opened Friday with an estimated $9.2 million from 3,601 locations and is now expected to earn around $25 million through Sunday. That’s about what the Arnold Schwarzenegger original realized for its own 1990 debut… not adjusted for inflation. The weekend’s final new release, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, also opened on the low end of expectations with an estimated $5.8 million from 3,391 locations. The third entry in the kid-lit franchise is projected to earn $17 million for the weekend – lower than both of its Wimpy Kid predecessors.  We’ll have full details tomorrow.

Title Friday Total
1. The Dark Knight Rises $10,400,000 $328.5
2. Total Recall (2012) $9,200,000 $9.2
3. Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3 $5,850,000 $5.8
