‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Earns $160 Million At Box Office


‘The Dark Knight Rises’ earned $160 million at the box office this weekend, despite a tragic shooting that took place during a midnight showing in Aurora, Colorado on early Friday morning.

Experts believed some movie-goers would choose to stay home after gunman James Holmes opened fire on a Colorado theatre, killing 12 and injuring 59.

Though pre-release predictions indicated that ‘Dark Knight Rises’ would earn somewhere around $200 million at the box office, $160 million was still enough for the film to the third biggest opening in box office history, behind ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.’    In addition to that, Christopher Nolan’s final film in his Batman trilogy is the biggest opening for a non-3D movie.

Such a great and accomplished weekend, stained forever by the horrific actions of one person.
