The Dark Knight Rises tops Weekend Box Office (22 July 2012)

The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises couldn’t steal the opening weekend record away from The Avengers, which established an insanely high bar when it debuted to $207.4 million in May.

On the other hand, Nolan’s first installment, Batman Begins, opened slowly but went on to earn a very respectable $205.3 million. Three years later, sequel The Dark Knight pitted Batman against his most-famous foe, The Joker. The anticipation of seeing that conflict play out in Nolan’s universe was only amplified by Heath Ledger’s untimely death, and the movie went on to set a record with an incredible $158.4 million debut.

The Dark Knight Rises achieved a $160 million debut.
