People dig on THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, and if the box office numbers are any indication they dig on THE DARK KNIGHT RISES in a big way.  There are of course those who didn't like it, but then there are people like me who have seen it two or three (or more?) times.  And either way, the tickets get sold.

Despite now sitting dark and pretty at $304 million on its twelfth day of release, Nolan's final chapter in his Dark Knight Trilogy still has some catching up to do if it wants to triumph over the other two films that hit the $300 million domestic mark first: THE HUNGER GAMES ended up with $405.9 million and THE AVENGERS (natch) with $615.9 million. 

Even with the extremely high budget and expansive marketing campagin, that $304 million (plus Sunday's $248.2 million international total) must be sounding pretty damn good right now to the higher-ups. 

All the more reason why we'll probably be seeing you again very soon, Batman...

Extra Tidbit: THE DARK KNIGHT had actually hit $333.9 million by its twelfth day.

"It doesn't matter who we are, what matters is our plan.."

300mil, 400mil,800mil..it doesn't matter. TDKR is an awesome second sequel and one that I'll be revisiting time and time again. I've seen it four times already, and I'll be seeing it at least 5 more before it exits cinemas. TDKR deserves my time and money because it's just a really, really good film, despite what some folk have to say.

It'd be great if TDKR would catch up with TDK....

But realistically speaking, I'll be really happy if it cross Hunger Games for a total of 420-430M. And it'd still be awesome, because other than Toy Story 3, no other threequel ever broke the 400 barrier. Seriously, is there any other film more deserving of that second place to Avengers?

I think it has the legs still to pass up The Hunger Games in overall gross, but sadly won't come close to TDK and to me thats not really a big deal.

IT'S SAFE TO SAY ...

... domestic total will be between 450-500, worldwide over billion, which is not bad at all for a third movie. In fact, if I were a WB chairman, I would be calling Nolan to ask how's it going lately ... :D
