'Dark Knight Rises' Still Tops Box Office on Slow Weekend

"" is still unshaken on the top of North American box office. The third Batman film from Christopher Nolan adds $62.1 million on its second weekend to secure the champion title, though it suffers a big drop of 60% compared to its opening weekend's gross.

After its ten-day run, the superhero action film has collected a total of $289.1 million domestically. The number is slightly below its predecessor "", which had earned $313.8 million at the same point in its run. Overseas, the -starring movie has grossed $248.2 million, making its total worldwide haul to $537.3 million.

Also staying on its last week's position is "", which still bows on No. 2. The fourth installment of the 20th Century Fox animated film franchise grosses $13.3 million on its third weekend.

Meanwhile, newcomers "The Watch" and "" fail to attract many moviegoers as they have so-so debuts. The former enters the chart on the third place with $12.7 million, while the latter trails on the fourth place with an estimated $11.7 million.

Rounding up the top five is "". The R-rated comedy from director/writer is forced to step down one place from No. 4 to No. 5 with an addition of $7.3 million to its domestic cume.

Overall, it's a slow weekend on box office, which was likely an impact of the mass shooting in Colorado as well as Friday's opening of the London Olympics. Paul Dergarabedian, president of Hollywood.com, explains, "It's been a double dose of things. The Olympics has been dominating media coverage lately and probably kept a lot of people home Friday night, and then there's the Aurora shooting."
