box office gross

The Dark Knight Rises has performed extremely well in its midnight opening, earning $27 million over 3,000 locations. I don’t think anyone’s surprised, TDKR is going to be the biggest film of the summer, if not the year. It’s already exceeded The Avengers‘ midnight earning of $18 million and we can only assume the total will continues to rise as the weekend progresses. Though, it will be interesting to watch for any effect the terrible tragedy in Aurora could have on the film’s weekend box office.

It also should be noted TDKR‘s midnight gross is lower than Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, which earned 43.5 million, and that film then went on to beat The Dark Knight‘s opening weekend total. Will Batman be able to beat out The Boy Who Lived? Only if you help and make it out to catch TDKR this weekend. Maybe see it in IMAX, too, help pad those numbers.

Did you see it at midnight? Are planning to see it again or for the first time this weekend? Make sure you check out Nerd Bastard’s own review!

Avatar Slams Worldwide BoxOffice

Avatar has done what critics and Hollywood thought to be nearly impossible. It has grossed back over its half a billion dollar budget in nearly 13 days in combination with it’s overseas gross. A feat that many were pessimistic about. THR :

Director James Cameron’s mega-budget epic raised eyebrows with its overseas boxoffice staying power, grossing $145 million — a mere 12% drop from its opening weekend — from 14,844 screens. It did well in its second week in the U.S. as well.

The film’s offshore cumulative total stands at $405 million. Worldwide tally clocks in at $617.3 million.

Big Fucken Kudos! The film with its beautiful visual envelopment and huge 3D success may just totally annihilate how we normally viewd movies…Which I’m sure was Jim Cameron’s intent all along..The Scoundrel!!!
