‘Dark Knight Rises’ opening cracks top three
LOS ANGELES (AP) – “The Dark Knight Rises” was on track to earn $160 million, which would be a record for 2-D films, over the weekend following a mass shooting at a Colorado screening of the Batman film.
Citing box office insiders, The Hollywood Reporter, Los Angeles Times, New York Times and other media outlets reported Sunday that the latest Batman sequel earned $160 to $162 million.
That amount would best the $158.4 million debut of “The Dark Knight” in 2008 and give “Dark Knight Rises” the third-highest domestic weekend opening ever after the 3-D films “The Avengers” with $207.4 million and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” with $169.2 million.
