Warner Bros. Pictures/DC Comics(LOS ANGELES) — Although The Dark Knight Rises collected $64.1 million in the second weekend to stay on top of the box office, the ticket sales have dropped most likely due to the Aurora, Colo. shootings and the start of the Olympic games reports the Los Angeles Times.

Two other movies lagged in their debuts at the box office this weekend. The Watch, a comedy starring Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller, received a paltry $13 million and Step Up Revolution, the fourth in a dance franchise, was even less successful with $11.8 million.
