$900m Worldwide, Ahead of THE DARK KNIGHT? - THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Box Office

The Dark Knight Rises Batman WallpaperThe Dark Knight Rises box office: TDKR passes $900m milestone worldwide

First of all, there are no official figures as yet. That’s because Warner Bros. hasn’t released international box office data for Monday, August 20. But considering that The Dark Knight Rises’ Monday cume stood at $899.76 million (as found at Box Office Mojo), it’s not mere speculation to assert that Christopher Nolan’s third and final Batman movie passed the $900m milestone yesterday. That is, unless international weekend estimates released Sunday were way off. [Check out The Dark Knight Rises wallpaper.]

But if those estimates are indeed on target, something else equally momentous has taken place as well: The Dark Knight Rises has surpassed The Dark Knight at the international box office. TDKR had a $488.6 million cume as of Sunday, Aug. 19, vs. TDK’s $469.7 million cume. But then again, if you choose not to ignore pesky details such as inflation and currency fluctuations, things will look quite a bit different. Adjusting for U.S. inflation rates, The Dark Knight cumed at approximately $500m in 2012 U.S. dollars; in other words, it remains ahead of The Dark Knight Rises though their positions should be reversed by next weekend. Adjustments for the myriad currency fluctuations would be a long and laborious affair beyond our capabilities.

The Dark Knight Rises on the all-time worldwide box office chart

On the all-time worldwide box office chart — not adjusted for either inflation or currency exchange fluctuations — The Dark Knight Rises is no. 22, between Mike Newell / Daniel Radcliffe’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire ($896.9m) and Steven Spielberg / Sam Neill’s Jurassic Park ($914.7m).

With $1.003 billion, The Dark Knight is no. 12, between Chris Columbus / Daniel Radcliffe’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone ($974.8m) and Tim Burton / Johnny Depp’s Alice in Wonderland ($1,024.3 billion).

Will The Dark Knight Rises reach the $1 billion mark worldwide? Quite likely, considering that the film earned about $32 million worldwide last weekend, and has yet to open in China and Italy. How far Batman will fly above the $1 billion mark remains to be seen.

The Dark Knight Rises cast

The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale as Batman, Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate, Michael Caine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Matthew Modine, and Tom Conti.

Christopher Nolan co-wrote the Dark Knight Rises screenplay with his brother Jonathan Nolan, who has stated that the film’s basic premise was inspired by Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities.
