Mania Box Office Report: Dark Knight RISES (Mania.com)

The box office totals are in and The Dark Knight Rises has beaten The Watch. Which should really come as no surprise. All eyes are on The Dark Knight Rises as the question now is: Can it topple The Avengers? The Avengers took home $543,000 this week on 373 screens and has made $616,027,000 so far. It stood fast on the 15th spot on the Box Office Top 20. Which means The Dark Knight Rises has to make triple what it has now (see below). If we give it the same amount time, 13 weeks, it might be able to come close. I personally believe it comes down to repeat viewing. I saw The Avengers the second weekend with no problem. As for The Dark Knight Rises I tried to see it again but it was too crowded, a good thing for the box office. The Avengers had no competition and the summer was just getting under way. The Dark Knight Rises has its dark cloud and back to school to compete with. If I were a betting man I put my money on The Avengers to rule the summer.

The first week of August starts off with a remake. A remake that looks to be more faithful to its source material. Let us sit back and enjoy Total Recall.
