'Dark Knight Rises' Passes $500 Million Worldwide

Dark Knight

"The Dark Knight Rises" has fallen, but not by the staggering amount many onlookers were originally predicting. In its second weekend in theaters, the third and last Batman movie under Christopher Nolan's supervision amassed a total of $64.1 million domestically, dropping 60% from its debut last weekend. Overseas, the brooding comic book flick brought in $122.1 million for its second weekend of release.

That brings the grand total of the Nolan-Batman finale to $289.1 million stateside, and almost $540 million worldwide. Not too shabby for eight years in exile, Mr. Wayne!
