the dark knight rises box office expectations

Unless you live under a rock, it's no surprise to hear that The Dark Knight Rises is going to be a blockbuster. Like a big, BIG blockbuster.

In fact, it's going to make so much money at the box office that it is the only 2012 release that has a chance of beating any of the records set by The Avengers.

The final installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy is expected to make over $150 million during its opening weekend in July, which is what Marvel's movie was expected to rake in before it ACTUALLY made $207.4 million!

When The Dark Knight made $158.4 million way back in 2008, people attributed the high gross to Heath Ledger's death. Now there's no controversy to propel people to the theater, but we have a feeling this box office juggernaut won't need it.

After seeing the first two amazing movies in the franchise, why wouldn't people flock to the theater to see what promises to be an epic conclusion?

We'd gamble our entire life savings on this movie making well over $150 million during its domestic opening weekend. However, we're not sure if Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, and Tom Hardy will be enough star power to conquer the example set by The Avengers crew.

Do U think DC has a chance at beating Marvel at the box office this summer?

    This will be a day full of you acting all gay and feggy over the Magic Mike's premiere. Your sexual inexperience and immaturity will be on full display.

    Agree, the movie will definitely make more than "just" $150 millon the opening weeking.

    I'm looking forward to the final installment of the Batman series! However, I don't think they'll beat Avengers record. Even the final installment of the Twilight series won't beat The Avengers.

    Avengers has the 3D gimmick and a multitude of superheros… If The Dark Knight Rises beats 185 million it will have sold more tickets opening weekend and that to me would just be stunning. But I think it will happen.
