Yesterday I reported that The Dark Knight Rises had already made over $500 million worldwide, and now it’s starting to set new records. Over the weekend of July 29th, the IMAX box office gross was about $52 million.
“We’ve crossed the $50 million mark in the fastest time ever with The Dark Knight Rises, lifted, in part, by exceptional international box office,” said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. “Audiences are clearly seeking out and embracing the film the way it was meant to be seen – in IMAX. We are pleased by the second-weekend results and believe the film will continue to have the legs we anticipated.”
Have you seen The Dark Knight Rises in IMAX? Christopher Nolan shot about an hour of footage on the large format, I highly recommend you see it in IMAX if you can!
