I don't even care what TDKR made this weekend. I didn't care much going into the weekend anyway, but now...

To be honest, we're just watching these box office threads to make sure there's no totally inappropriate gloating about TDKR not beating Avengers. Which, btw, someone on this thread and the TDKR box office thread already got a probation for doing.
