The Dark Knight Rises continues to make monstrous waves at the box office after another impressive performance on Tuesday, July 24th. The Christopher Nolan-directed trilogy capper brought in another $17.8 million bringing its five-day domestic haul to a stellar $198.0 million. That amount is good enough for the fifth biggest Tuesday performance of all-time and third most among non-openers behind only The Dark Knight and Avatar.
On that note, the foreign total still stands at $88 million as there has not been an update concerning those figures since Monday. Officially, the global take now stands at $286 million–a figure that can be a bit misleading as several overseas markets are yet to come online for The Dark Knight Rises .
The budget for Warner Bros.’ latest blockbuster is presumed to be around $325 million when including marketing costs. This means that the film still has a ways to go for profitability, but judging from the performance thus far, that should not be a problem. Simple data extrapolation pegs the film’s total North American box office receipts north of $400 million at a minimum by time it is all said an done.
