Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises is expected to bring in some serious cash this weekend at the box office. While it may not be able to topple Joss Whedon's The Avengers (not having 3D is going to stop it from doing that), the film is still one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year and midnight shows have been sold out for weeks. It's been predicted that the movie will make somewhere in the neighborhood of $180 million from Friday to Saturday - which would put it at #2 on the all-time list - but in order to do that the film has to be projected in a lot of theaters. Hence why this news isn't much of a shock.

The Dark Knight Rises is set to be the second biggest wide release in history. According to Box Office Mojo, Batman will be invading 4, 404 theaters nationwide, which puts it just under the number of theaters that carried The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opening weekend back in 2010 (4,468). When The Dark Knight opened in 2008 it took over 4,366 cinemas, whereas Batman Begins only found its way into 3,858. Should The Dark Knight Rises make its predicted $180 million this weekend, that means it will pull down nearly $41,000 per theater.

The finale of Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises stars Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, and Marion Cotillard.
