“The Dark Knight Rises” earned a sizeable $160.9 million over the weekend, making it the biggest 2-D opening ever, but falling slightly below expectations following the mass shooting at a Colorado screening of the Batman film.
Warner Bros. said Monday that the final installment of director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy earned $160,887,295.
The debut makes “The Dark Knight Rises” the biggest 2-D opening ever ahead of its 2008 predecessor, “The Dark Knight.” It also gives the movie the third-largest opening after the 3-D films “The Avengers” with $207.4 million and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows â€” Part 2″ with $169.2 million.
Obviously, I have no heard much about the movie itself because of the tragic events in Colorado. In case you missed it, here’s a picture of James Holmes, the shooting suspect, during his first court appearance. Who knows what is going on in his head – the guy looks like he’s completely lost it, but then again he may be putting on a show. What do you think?
