Holy SHIZ! It is one good day to be a superhero!
The Dark Knight Rises has reportedly pulled in $431.2 million domestically, and $574 overseas…which combined, makes it the 13th film ever to total over a billion dollars, with an estimated, collective $1.005!
And yes, that means the the concluding chapter the Christopher Nolan-directed Batman trilogy has beaten its predecessor, The Dark Knight, which made $1.003 billion back in 2008!
Meanwhile, its action companion this summer The Avengers has now passed $1.5 BILLION worldwide in its 19th week released globally, and is now officially the world's THIRD biggest movie OF ALL TIME, with only Titanic and Avatar standing in its way!
James Cameron better enjoy his throne while he has it, though!
We have a feeling that The Avengers 2 will be coming for him HARD when it's released in a few years!
