A new terror rises among Gotham and Batman once again resurfaces to save the city. The DC Comics terrorist Bane, who is known for his strong physical demeanor and intelligent ways, may finally have his 'way' with the infamous Dark Knight. The ghost of villains past comes to haunt Batman in this thrilling new film. Director Christopher Nolan is responsible for this epic conclusion to the Dark Knight.

Theaters around the country filled up last night for opening night! Is it Christian Bale in a tight suit again that has audiences in an uproar, or the fact that Anne Hathaway is on the big screen? With "Ice Age", "Ted", and "The Amazing Spiderman" holding down the fort for the top 3 spots at the Box Office, we are wondering how successfull "The Dark Knight" will be! Will you be catching "The Dark Knight Rises" this weekend?


The animals of "Ice Age: Continental Drift" knocked Spidey out of the top spot this weekend! "Ice Age: Continental Drift" took in a nice $45.7 million opening weekend, winning over the North American weekend box-office numbers. "The Amazing Spiderman" came in second, with a cool $35 million, which makes its box office total just over $200 million for its second week in theaters. The hilarious Marky Mark box office hit "Ted" followed in 3rd place with just over $32 million in total.

Did you see any of these films this weekend? Which film is a box office hit for you? Spidey? Teddy? Or the animated animals of Ice Age. We want to know your thoughts!
