The Dark Knight Rises grossed another $4.26 million at the Australian box office over the weekend, pushing its tally above the $33 million mark.
The Christopher Nolan-directed film was shown across 619 screens, posting a screen average of $6893. It has now grossed $US354 million in the US and $US378 million around the world. Nolan's first Batman film, Batman Begins, grossed $15.78 million in Australia in 2005 while The Dark Knight grossed $46.09 million.
Other strong performers over the weekend included stripper film Magic Mike ($2.51 million across 333 screens, dropping just 34 per cent in its second weekend), Step Up 4: Miami Heat (which opened with $1.8 million across 370 screens) and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (which opened with $1.12 million across 366 screens). Animated comedy Ted rounded out the top five with almost $1.05 million across 274 screens and has now grossed $32.77 million in total.
Among Australian fare, comedy Not Suitable For Children ($24,095 across 21 screens in its fourth weekend) and documentary I Am Eleven ($24,314 across 16 screens in its fifth weekend) continued their run.
However, a strong box office performance is expected for upcoming comedy The Sapphires (released on August 9), which has been promoted strongly be local distributor Hopscotch/eOne.
