This film has two very successful previous films, a hype build of four years, and one of today's biggest directors behind it. There is certainly a crowd of people who didn't like The Dark Knight, but that film made half a billion dollars, more than twice that of Batman Begins. I imagine this will get a bigger crowd, considering the resounding success of TDK, so I am going big here and saying 175-200.

No way

60% of the voters have no clue what box office numbers mean. TDKR is a 2D movie with a moderate price inflation from 2008. It can at most make $175M this weekend. Let's face it Bane is no Joker. Hardy is no Ledger.

Over 200 MILLION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm going big on this one. While "The Avengers" totally set the bar, I have a crazy feeling that TDKR is gonna smash it regardless

The hype for this film is, it goes without saying, through the roof. I don't think any movie in recent memory has had the anticipation at such a boiling point. With the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, there was a build up of several films a year to the Avengers, so the anticipation was tided over with lead-ins to the big event. For this movie, we have been biting our lips for four years. Look at the hype and box office generated by The Hunger Games, and extrapolate it onto comic book

"It's not about the money, it's about sending a message". But I'd say 175+

Agree with Ezekial

There was a lot of kids there for Avengers but I can't see these same parents taking their kids to see DKR.

As much as I am looking forward to TDKR & rooting for it to have a killer box office run, I chose $150mil to $175 mil. NO way it beats The Avengers record.

i agree with you. This wont be a popcorn flick like Avengers was. This will be a 3 hr emotional investment of your time to really let it sink in. I have a feeling there wont be a lot of dry eyes as this movie plays out. A lot of the teeny bopper twilight text during the movie crowd will pass.

Can I change my vote?

I just realized that DKR isn't in 3D so it's not gonna do Avengers money and make more than 200. I hope it's 200 million but realistically it'll be between $175-200 million. Still the overall goodwill of the franchise will bring everybody out in droves. Let's just hope the movie is actually good because in the end it won't matter how it makes opening weekend. The Twilight Saga: New Moon had a huge opening weekend so what does that matter?

It's going to earn about as much or a little more than the last installment. I don't think the buzz is as big as it was 4 years ago but the raised ticket prices might even out the income.

I picked $200M+, but listen...

I realize that this movie won't benefit from 3D and IMAX 3D ticket sales (IMAX tickets, sure, but IMAX 3D is a bit more expensive) and isn't as kid-friendly as The Avengers. Though this movie will sell more tickets. How much more? I don't know, but I hope a lot. I'm expecting a big surprise, in which box office analysts are underestimating this movie, and that's saying something for the sequel to The Dark Knight! Or maybe I'm being overly optimistic, whatever. I want the best for this movie. :)
