'The Dark Knight Rises' climbs to No. 2 at the 2012 worldwide box office

Posted on

After three weekends, it’s clear that Warner Brothers’ $250 million franchise finale The Dark Knight Rises, which has earned $363.3 million, won’t be able to match The Dark Knight‘s box office haul ($533.3 million) domestically, but it’s more than making up the difference overseas.

Rises is running well ahead of The Dark Knight internationally, having grossed $378.4 million so far. At the same point in its run, The Dark Knight had earned $203.7 million on the way to a $468.6 million international finish.

All told, The Dark Knight Rises has grossed $732 million worldwide, which rockets it into the number two spot at the worldwide box office this year behind The Avengers, which has grossed over $1.4 billion. In third place is Ice Age: Continental Drift, which has earned $716 million.

It’s very likely that Rises, which seems headed to a domestic finish just below $450 million, will slightly surpass its predecessor’s $1.0 billion worldwide cume, though only time will tell how high it will actually rise.
