'Dark Knight Rises' Breaks 2D Opening Weekend Record!

'Dark Knight Rises' Breaks 2D Opening Weekend Record!

The Dark Knight Rises brought the crowds to the theaters and broke records on a weekend marked by tragedy.

The final installment of the Batman trilogy starring Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway brought in $160.9 million, the largest opening weekend for a 2D film ever. Experts say that the Aurora shootings at a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises could have caused a $10-20 million drop in grosses, though its impossible to peg the exact amount, according to THR.

The major movie studios did not report their weekend movie grosses until this afternoon out of respect for the victims of the tragedy.

Ice Age: Continental Drift fell to second place in its sophomore weekend with $20.4 million.

Rounding out the top five were Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone‘s The Amazing Spider-Man with $10.9 million, Mark Wahlberg‘s Ted with $10 million, and Brave with $6 million.
