BOX OFFICE: TDKR Crosses $800 Million Worldwide; Well On Its Way To $1 Billion
It looks likely that Christopher Nolan's third and final Bat-flick will join the billion dollar club after all, unless there is a dramatic decline in earning as it moves into its fifth week of release. Click for the figures..
After grossing $19.5 million at the US box office and $34.2 million internationally in its fourth weekend of release, The Dark Knight Rises has surpassed the $800 million mark at the worldwide box office. The movie now sits on a very impressive worldwide cumulative of $835.4 million, having taken in $445.3 million internationally and $390.1 million in the US in total.
Many wondered how the movie would be affected by the Colorado shootings, and although earnings have been lower than anticipated -- particularly at late evening screenings -- if The Dark Knight Rises continues to rake it in for another couple of weeks, it should have no problem reaching that $1 billion mark, joining that other great CBM of 2012, Marvel's The Avengers.
