The Dark Knight Rises is on track to earn 160 US million dollars (£102m) in the wake of a shooting rampage which left 12 dead and 58 wounded at a midnight screening of the Batman sequel in Colorado.

The film earned between 160 and 162 million US dollar, according to box-office insiders, reported the Hollywood Reporter, Los Angeles Times, New York Times and other media outlets.

Hollywood studios joined Dark Knight Rises distributor Warner Brothers in publicly withholding their box-office numbers for the weekend. Box office tracking service Rentrak also declined to report figures this weekend.

An opening of 160 million US dollars (£102m) would give the 2-D Dark Knight Rises the third-highest opening ever after the 3-D films The Avengers with 207.4 million dollars (£132.7m) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 with 169.2 million dollars (£108.3m).

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
