America stood defiant as they went to see The Dark Knight Rises in record numbers despite fears that a copycat gunman could show up anywhere at any time.
Batman fans packed theaters across the country, determined that the nation wasn't going to bow to a madman's lunacy.
The Dark Knight Rises raked in an estimated $162 million over the weekend. That's a little less than the $190 million the film was expected to make, but still a very strong turnout.
Meanwhile, the movie's stars Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway flew home from their cancelled movie premiere in Paris, France.
Hathaway, was said to be in tears on the plane. She released this statement, "My heart aches and breaks for the lives taken and altered by this unfathomable senseless act. I am at a loss for words how to express my sorrow."
Bale said in a statement, "Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them."
Americans everywhere continue to join in solidarity with the victims, many wearing Batman T-shirts to the vigil to honor those who lost their lives seeing the movie they loved.
