With $8.7 million in ticket sales on Tuesday, The Dark Knight Rises has surpassed $300 million in domestic earnings. Christopher Nolan's third and final Batman film joins The Avengers ($615.9 million) and The Hunger Games ($405.9 million) as the three films of this year to pass the box office landmark.
Batman, Selina Kyle, Bane, and The Dark Knight Rises have been in theaters for 12 days, and still seeks to challenge The Avengers for 2012 box office supremacy. It remains to be seen, however, if The Dark Knight Rises can even match the domestic gross of its predecessor The Dark Knight, which earned $533.3 million in the U.S.
