The Dark Knight Rises” won the weekend box office for the second time this week, handily beating “Ice Age: Continental Drift” and new release “The Watch.” The last installment in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy earned $64.1 million, bringing its gross total revenue to $289.1 million. This is still less, however, than “The Dark Knight,” which had already earned $313.8 million in its first 10 days (see the Associated Press for a more in-depth comparison of the two films).

Here are this week’s top 10 movies at the box office:

1. “The Dark Knight Rises,” $64.1 million

2. “Ice Age: Continental Drift,” $13.3 million

3. “The Watch,” $13 million

4. “Step Up Revolution,” $11.8 million

5. “Ted,” $7.4 million

6. “The Amazing Spider-Man,” $6.8 million

7. “Brave,” $4.2 million

8. “Magic Mike,” $2.6 million
