Box-office has been very good so far this year (significantly higher than this point last year, I believe) and I see TDKR easily crossing $500 million. I don't see any indication that it won't. The Avengers has the buzz right now because it comes out in a week. Just wait until we get the next trailer and The Avengers has played for a couple of weekends. The buzz is going to skyrocket. Already at CinemaCon people are raving about the footage that Nolan showed them.
