The only movie it seemed like people were talking about this weekend was The Dark Knight, but it should be known that this was not the only movie that people were heading to the theaters to see.
Meryl Streep's Mamma Mia! has actually set a record of its own - narrowly beating last summer's Hairspray for the strongest opening of a musical with $27.6 million dollars.
All in all (mostly thanks to The Dark Knight), the box office pulled in a record breaking $258 million dollars this past weekend.
