It's becoming clear that the opening weekend record might be broken, once again. Christopher Nolan's final chapter The Dark Knight Rises is expected to gross between $80M and $85M. More after the jump...

Will it set a new opening weekend record? That is the question right now for The Dark Knight Rises. According to Friday estimates, the Christopher Nolan-directed film is expected to make somewhere between $80 million and $85 million. If the estimates hold, that would mean it's about even with Marvel's record-breaking The Avengers for opening day, but it seems it won't reach that opening day record set by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. While the opening day was always expected to be huge, it's the numbers for Saturday and Sunday that will play the biggest role.

Deadline also mentions that the film is now at $125.5 million worldwide, and that Hollywood is predicting an opening weekend in the range between $180 million and $200 million. Reports also adds something unusual, saying that Warner Bros. won't report any numbers this weekend:

"I’ve just been told by a Warner Bros spokeswoman that the studio may do this “out of sensitivity to people”. Through midday today the studio was reporting The Dark Knight Rises grosses internationally and domestically as usual. Now it may suspend its box office reporting all weekend for Christopher Nolan’s final Batman trilogy installment. A final decision has not yet been made."
