'Dark Knight Rises' Opens to Record $30.6 Mil in Midnight Grosses Amid Shooting

Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises enjoyed record-breaking midnight business -- but now faces the tough task of rolling out amid real-life violence that left a dozen people dead and many others injured after a masked man opened fire in a Colorado theater.

So far, Warner Bros. has no plans to change the film's release plan. Dark Knight Rises opened at 12:01 a.m. Friday in more than 3,700 locations across the country, grossing a record $30.6 million. That's the second-best number of all time outside of the final Harry Potter pic ($43.5 million). 

By midday Friday, Dark Knight Rises will be playing in more than 4,400 theaters in North America.
