By comparison, “The Dark Knight” took a 53 percent drop in its second weekend with a gross of $ 75.17 million and a 10-day cumulative gross of $ 313.8 million.

Among the new arrivals in theaters, the comedy “The Watch” opened in third place with $ 13 million. And the dance sequel “Step Up: Revolution” opened at No. 4 with $ 11.8 million.
