UPDATED: 'The Dark Knight Rises' Tops $600 Million Internationally, $1.04 Billion Worldwide

on September 03, 2012

darkknightrisespred.pngSunday (9/9) Update: Warner Bros. reports that The Dark Knight Rises has reached $603.4 million internationally. Combined with its domestic total of $437.9 million, the worldwide tally has reached $1.04 billion and pushed it to #10 all-time worldwide. The weekend estimate is $13 million from 64 markets.

In Italy, Rises made $2.26 million from 820 screens. The cume is $14.46 million.

The international number is a rough estimate due to the fact that China's grosses will not be reported until Tuesday. Warner Bros. projects a $5.7 million weekend in China, putting the estimated cume there at $42.1 million.

Monday (9/3) Update: Warner Bros. is now estimating that The Dark Knight Rises has reached $577.7 million internationally. Add that to the estimated domestic total of $433.2 million, and the worldwide haul is sitting pretty at $1,010,900,000. 2008's The Dark Knight took in $1,001,921,825 worldwide.

In China, rough numbers indicate that The Dark Knight Rises has managed an outstanding seven-day opening gross of $31 million with 5.4 million admissions from 4,081 screens. Official numbers from China are due tomorrow. In Italy, TDKR made $9.1 million over five days.

Sunday (9/2) Update: Warner Bros. estimates that The Dark Knight Rises took in another $46.4 million internationally from 10,156 screens in 64 markets this weekend, which pushes the international cume to $574 million. Add that to the estimated domestic cume of $431.2 million and the worldwide total should be around $1,005,200,000 by the end of the weekend.

The international number is a rough estimate because accurate figures from China won't come in until Tuesday morning. Warner Bros. estimates that The Dark Knight Rises took in $28.5 million from nearly 4,100 screens in China. In Italy, the action flick grabbed $8.8 million from 836 screens.

Sunday (8/26) Update: Warner Bros. reports that The Dark Knight Rises has crossed the $500 million mark internationally after grossing another $15.3 million from 62 markets and 6,900 screens. The international cume is $519 million and the worldwide total is now $941 million.
