Dark Knight Rises Third fastest to reach 300 million dollars

The Dark Knight Rises couldn't top Marvel's 3D blockbuster The Avengers — or its own predecessor for that matter — but the sequel did manage to become the third-fastest film to reach $300 million at the U.S. box office.

While Avengers took just 9 days to reach the mark and The Dark Knight took 10, Christopher Nolan's final Batman movie shot past the number on Tuesday after 12 days in theaters.

That number can still climb considering the Christian Bale movie grossed $64.1 million in its second weekend of release and plenty of people have still steered clear because of the tragedy in Colorado.

So far it is the third-best domestic box office performer of the year. We doubt it will beat the $615.8 million record set by Marvel, but it could easily Rise above The Hunger Games, which grossed a total of $406 million.

    I like stories like this that hollywood puts out. Higher ticket prices and inflation certainly up the dollar amount. What they should really look at are how many tickets have sold. If you look at that and compare to past movies, there is definitely a difference.
