You Rate the New Releases: 'Total Recall' and 'Wimpy Kid: Dog Days'

Looks like it is going to take more than a remake of a 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie to knock The Dark Knight off the top of the box office. The Dark Knight Rises won the weekend box office for a third straight weekend with Len Wiseman's Total Recall starring Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale making a modest $26 million to claim second place.

Meanwhile, the weekend's other wide release, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, notched $14.7 million, the lowest opening weekend total for the Wimpy Kid franchise to date. The film took third place for the weekend.

Between the two films though, Wimpy Kid earned better review from critics and audiences alike, though it was still considered rotten with 50% of critics giving it the thumbs up. Audiences seemed to like it though, scoring the film with 78% freshness and an A- CinemaScore.

Meanwhile, Total Recall was battered by critics who, while praising the slick action sequences, found the film bland and ultimately, unnecessary. The film scored a 30% rotten rating and a C+ CinemaScore.

But now we move on to our weekly polls that put the power of feedback into your fingers. Let us know what you thought of Recall and Wimpy Kid in our poll and comment section.
