Interstellar Opens with $50 Million at the Weekend Box-Office

story-interstellar-site

Estimates are in, and it appears that Interstellar has earned approximately $50 million this past weekend at the Box-Office. The film also opened two days early for limited 70mm IMAX, 35mm, and traditional 70mm formats, which adds an additional $2 million to the estimated gross since release, brining it to $52.15 million. The weekend gross is less than Nolan’s previous non-Batman release, Inception, which opened with $62.8 million, but was also released during the peak of Summer in 2010. Interstellar took in $13.4 million from IMAX theaters, which eclipses other November releases such as Skyfall and Catching Fire, with $12.6 million and $12.75 million respectively. That makes the IMAX total over a quarter of all earnings, which is an achievement for a film that pushed the premium format so extensively in marketing.

The Dark Knight Rises Passes $1 Billion Mark

The Dark Knight Rises 1 Billion

UPDATED: September 5th

The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan’s grand-scale conclusion to his Batman trilogy, just recently passed the $1 billion mark at the worldwide Box-office. According to the website BoxOfficeMojo.com, the film has grossed $1,011,514,754 — which is about $8 million past The Dark Knight‘s worldwide total. This marks Christopher Nolan’s second film to pass the billion dollar mark, and only the 13th film ever to do so.

Domestically, the film hasn’t been as big of an achievement — for a number of reasons. The current domestic gross sits at just over $433M, which is about $100M shy of its predecessor’s total. However, when it comes to IMAX theaters, The Dark Knight Rises has been a great success. It just passed the $100M milestone across 557 IMAX theaters worldwide. The only other film ever to do so was James Cameron’s Avatar.

The Dark Knight Rises is currently the 2nd highest grossing film of 2012, and 9th of all time — domestically.  If you look to the right on our website, in the sidebar, that’s where we’ll be posting the current Box-office total in real-time. We suspect it isn’t done rising yet.

Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises has been performing strongly the box office both domestically and worldwide, despite tragic recent events. The epic conclusion to the highly acclaimed Batman trilogy has been gathering the attention of film-goers for many months, and it appears they chose a path of hope and strength through the sad weekend. And despite not having 3D on its side, The Dark Knight Rises has broken records and is setting a great pace.

The film’s midnight take of $30.6M is a new record, and the opening day take of $75M ranks as the 3rd highest opening day of all time. The official opening weekend total was $160,887,295, which places it in the number 3 spot again, this time for highest opening weekends. $30M was made from pre-sales alone.

As of our latest update, the worldwide total is approximated at $847M, and the domestic total just passed the $400M mark. Keep checking back with this article for the latest numbers. If you look to the right, in our sidebar, that’s where we’ll be posting the current total in real-time. In the meantime, we’ll be doing our best to personally add to the box-office total. Also, sorry for the repetitive wordplay in our headlines. ;)
