According to RadarOnline, the movie is on its way to having the biggest opening weekend in the movie franchise’s history. The film brought in $61.3 million on Friday, with the filming estimated to make between $125 million to $150 million for the three-day period.

The all-time champ is “The Dark Knight,” which made $158.4 million during its opening weekend in 2008.
