As expected, The Dark Knight Rises debuted as the No. 1 film in North America this weekend. (The studios refrained from reporting official weekend box office figures until Monday due to the Aurora theater shooting.)

According to Exhibitor Relations, the final film in director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy grossed $160.9 million for the weekend, more than The Dark Knight’s $158.4 million debut in 2008 and makes TDKR the largest ever 2D opening of all time. With $88 million made overseas, the film’s worldwide total is currently $248.9 million. IMAX announced that the film made $23.8 million from 396 IMAX locations worldwide.

Here are the rest of the weekend box office figures via Box Office Mojo:

1. The Dark Knight Rises $160.9 million

2. Ice Age: Continental Drift $20.4 million

3. The Amazing Spider-Man $10.9 million
