<i>Dark Knight Rises</i> Passes $732M to Become No. 2 Film of Year

With a global haul of $732 million, The Dark Knight Rises slipped past Ice Age: Continental Drift on Sunday to become the second-highest grossing film of the year. Marvel’s The Avengers is ensconced at No. 1 with $1.46 billion, which naturally means superhero movies have a firm grip on the top two spots of the 2012 worldwide box office.

In North America, the Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures is release has grossed $353.9 million, making it the third-highest grossing film of the year, behind The Avengers (($616.7 million) and Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games ($406.7 million).

Now The Hollywood Reporter wonders whether the conclusion of director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy has what it takes to match the $1 billion earned in 2008 by The Dark Knight. While latest installment trails the second film by $38 million domestically at the same time in its run, the trade paper notes The Dark Knight Rises saw a smaller decline in its third weekend.

However, it’s a different story overseas, where The Dark Knight Rises is outpacing The Dark Knight by about 30 percent, grossing $378.1 million to date.
