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).
