UPDATE: BOX OFFICE: $17M Friday For THE DARK KNIGHT RISES; Now On Pace For $55M Weekend
The numbers just won't go up... While it was previously reported that Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises is set for a $60 million in its second weekend, that is probably not happening due to a huge 78% drop from the film's opening last week...
According to official estimates, The Dark Knight Rises is now headed for $55 million in its second weekend. The Friday number was lower than expected, and instead of $20 million, it made around $17 million. This means the film had a big 78% drop from the opening last week, which is definitely not good. The overall weekend in US is down -30% from last year, and we'll see what happens.
The film is now on $400M+ at the worldwide box office, and it remains to be seen whether the international market will be huge, as many are predicting. Stay tuned for more box office updates.
UPDATE: Thanks to BoxOffice.com, we have the official Friday number:
Starring Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard and Morgan Freeman, The Dark Knight Rises is now in theatres.
