The Dark Knight Rises Expected to Reach $80-90 Million on Opening Day

by at . Comments

The Dark Knight Rises is set to for a lucrative weekend, according to early numbers. Unfortunately, all news about The Dark Knight Rises is tempered with grief over this morning's shooting in Aurora, Colorado.

Despite those horrific events, TDKR is expected to make between $80-90 million dollars from its opening day, with a projected $175-180 million for the weekend. That would place the Christopher Nolan film at second overall--behind the $207 million The Avengers made--in opening weekend gross.
