‘Dark Knight Rises’ Reportedly Earns $160 Million

“The Dark Knight Rises” is on track to earn $160 million after a shooting that left 12 dead and 58 wounded at a midnight screening of the Batman sequel in Colorado.

The Hollywood Reporter, Los Angeles Times, New York Times and other media outlets reported Sunday that the film earned $160 to $162 million, based on box-office insiders.

Hollywood studios joined “Dark Knight Rises” distributor Warner Bros. in publicly withholding their box-office numbers for the weekend. Box-office tracking service Rentrak also did not report figures this weekend.

An opening of $160 million would give the 2-D “Dark Knight Rises” the third-highest opening ever after the 3-D films “The Avengers” with $207.4 million and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2” with $169.2 million. (AP)
