"The Dark Knight Rises" Still #1

Sorry about that impromptu haitus from blogging. I've been a little busy lately, and kind of lazy, too. That's summer for you! =)

The reason why I didn't post any Box Office last week - when The Dark Knight Rises opened - was because every studio in America had opted to remain silent on their films' grossings out of respect for the Aurora, Colorado, community after the theater massacre. Even now, American studios are not commenting about their box office numbers, though they have released the grosses for the public to view.

On its opening weekend last week, The Dark Knight Rises made about $162 million, about ten to twenty million less than the studio was estimating. This is probably largely due to the theater shooting, though that has not been confirmed.

This weekend, The Dark Knight Rises is still topping the Box Office list, having earned $62 million domestically from Friday through Sunday. "That's a slight drop from Warner Bros.' Sunday estimate of $64 million. The much-anticipated final piece in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy has now made more than $287 million in its first 10 days" (Star Tribune).

Here are the estimated ticket sales for U.S. and Canadian theaters from Friday the 27th through Sunday the 29th, courtesy of the Star Tribune:

1. The Dark Knight Rises - $62 million
2. Ice Age: Continental Drift - $13 million
3. The Watch - $12 million
4. Step Up Revolution - $11 million
5. Ted - $7 million
6. The Amazing Spider-Man - $6 million
7. Brave - $4 million
8. Magic Mike - $2 million
9. Savages - $1.8 million
10. Moonrise Kingdom - $1.4 million

  3. Finally got to see The Dark Knight Rises and I it was great. :) I really wish The Amazing Spider-Man made more money, it was a lot better than most this year.
