The final chapter of Batman ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ of course premiered at number one and became the best 2D release of all time, earning $160.9 million dollars. The events of last week in the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado seem to have affected the amount people were expecting it to collect. It certainly didn’t reach the number ‘The Avengers’ made on its opening weekend of $200 million dollars. Nonetheless, Christopher Nolan has broken a record, and surely the movie will be hard to beat for the rest of the summer.
The animated film ‘Ice Age: Continental Drift’ dropped to the second spot with $ 20.4million dollars. The prehistoric animal film starring Ray Romano, Dennis Leery and John Leguizamo is sandwiched between two very different superhero movies, and it seems to be holding its ground now.
‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ dropped yet another spot to number three collecting $10.9 million dollars. Despite of the fact that this film has some better performances and techniques than its predecessor, it doesn’t seem to have captured the heart of many as that one did.
