Warner Brothers waited until Monday to release THE DARK KNIGHT RISE numbers out of respect for the victims of the Colorado shooting. It earned $160.9 million over the weekend, making it the biggest 2D opening ever, but a little lower than expected. It is currently at $180.2 million.
TDKR is the movie the third-largest opening this year after THE AVENGERS with $207.4 million and HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS with $169.2 million.
The shooting kept some people away, but it will no doubt make up some ground in the coming weeks.
