DARK KNIGHT RISES FEVER

 

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES will finally be released this Friday. Many theaters will have Midnight screenings as well as DARK KNIGHT marathons beginning on Thursday night. That is over 7 hours of Batman!

The big question is, will TDKR get a Best Picture nomination? The reason that The Academy went to 10 Best Picture nominees is because THE DARK KNIGHT failed to get a BP nomination in 2008. Ten nominees provide a wider variety of movies and lessening the chances of a snub. So, it is hard to imagine that the franchise that completely changed Oscar voting could get left out again. It is also a great way to honor the entire trilogy and Director Christopher Nolan‘s work. Nolan has never had a Best Director nomination. INCEPTION and MOMENTO hello? This could be his year. It will be interesting to see if it surpasses THE AVENGERS at the box office.

AVENGERS opening weekend: $207,438,708. Total Gross so far: $613,548,732 [est.]

BoxOffice.com is projecting opening weekend at $195,000,000 with a total of $575,000,000. These numbers seem rather conservative, but they point out that the Olympics could hurt a little.

Only 4 sleeps left (3 if you go at 12am).
