Three weeks after its launch, the concluding chapter of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy has grossed more than $800 million around the world.

Since it hit North American theaters on July 20, The Dark Knight Rises has raked in $834.4 million, which makes it the 30th most lucrative production of all time. It has grossed $445.3 outside of North America and $390.1 million in the US and Canada combined.

The Dark Knight Rises is living up to its name by soaring towards the success enjoyed by its predecessor The Dark Knight (2008). The previous film of the trilogy boasts global box-office earnings of a billion dollars, which puts it among the dozen most lucrative productions of all time.
