BOX OFFICE: TDKR $67.4M Worldwide: $27+M Midnights Shatter AVENGERS Record

Coming off the reports that TDKR has had a very good start on foreign soil, Deadline now confirm that the additional $27+M domestic means it will top Marvel's The Avengers' $18.4M in midnight showings earlier this Summer..



It seems the decision to open with 3,700 Thursday midnight showings has paid off for Warner Bros., as The Dark Knight Rises' 2D midnights number shatters the $18.4M generated by Marvel’s 3D epic The Avengers earlier this summer. Joss Whedon's film had held the record for midnight gross set by a superhero movie (the overall record is still held by the final Harry Potter flick). “The West Coast is still selling tickets with some theaters adding 3 AM shows, this is effing huge!” a Warner Bros exec tells Deadline. Reported pre-sales of $30M and international grosses from 9 countries totalling $10.4M, means that’s already $67.4M worldwide for Christopher Nolan's Batman swan-song before it's even in wide release.
