The Dark Knight Rises has risen to a chart-topping opening night!
The Batman flick starring Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway grossed over $27 million on its Thursday midnight opening. This shattered Marvel's The Avengers opening, which had a $18.4 million midnight gross.
A Warner Bros. executive, who was extremely thrilled with the movie's outcome, said:
“This is effing huge!”
The film, which opened in over 3,700 theaters around North America, had dedicated fans in line for hours, just to check out Christopher Nolan's final installment of Batman.
If you haven't seen the movie of the summer, you're definitely are missing out on an epic film.
Numbers don't lie!
