July 28, 2012


No one was particularly interested in counting box office receipts last weekend. In fact, out of respect for the victims of the Aurora shooting, Warner Brothers and the other major studios decided not to release earnings for The Dark Knight Rises (or any other current release) until Monday. By now we know that The Dark Knight Rises made $75.7 million on its opening day (including $30.6 from midnight screenings) and $160.8 million through Sunday. One week later, the final installment in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy saw a steep decline – down 76% with Friday’s estimate of $18 million from 4,404 locations. By comparison, 2008’s The Dark Knight was off 65.5% on its own second Friday. Projections have TDKR earning about $58 million this weekend, a number that would bring the film’s worldwide total close to $450 million. Meanwhile, the weekend’s new releases struggled. Fox’s ensemble comedy The Watch took in an estimated $4.5 million from 3,168 locations and Summit’s 3D Step Up Revolution garnered $4.85 million – in 600 fewer runs. Check back tomorrow for more details.

Title Friday Total
The Dark Knight Rises $18,050,000 $243
2. Step Up Revolution $4,850,000 $4.85
3. The Watch $4,500,000 $4.5
4. Ice Age 4 $4,000,000 $105.5
5. Ted $2,200,000 $188.4
