This is really intresting. Slash Film found out that due to inflation even thought DKR made more money..it didn’t sell more tickets.

No matter which way you cut it, Batman means blockbuster. The theatrical phenomenon began in 1989 with Tim Burton’s Batman, which grossed $251 million and spawned three sequels. Then, in 2005, Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins grossed $205 million and spawned two sequels, The Dark Knight ($533 million) and The Dark Knight Rises, which is at $413 million and climbing.

However, in 1989, the average price of an American movie tickets was about $4 and now, in 2012, it’s doubled to around $8. Do some simple math and you see that Burton’s film has, so far, sold around 12 million more tickets than Nolan’s latest movie. (To be fair, Risesis far from done at the box office and will likely drop that number to around 10 million when it’s done.) Also, to Nolan’s credit, 2008′s The Dark Knight sold about 12 million more tickets than Burton’s movie.
