"The Dark Knight" Continues to Break Box Office Records

For all those people out there who thought Warner Bros.' opening weekend estimate was more optimistic than realistic, a good ol' fashioned Joker "HA HA HA HA HA!" on you. "The Dark Knight," estimated to bring in $155.4 million during its opening weekend, actually brought in $158.335 million. In addition, "The Dark Knight" made $41.3 million in ticket sales from foreign markets (the film is being shown in 20 territories). Worldwide, the film has grossed $199.655 million. In a related story, the Hollywood Reporter says that despite the fact that "The Dark Knight" is screening on a record-breaking 4,366 theaters, moviegoers are still surfing eBay and Craigslist for tickets. Of course, the most valuable of these are the tickets for IMAX screenings ("The Dark Knight" is playing on 94 IMAX screens). On eBay, these IMAX tickets are going for about $50 each. So, to sum up this crazy weekend, "The Dark Knight" has broken the following records: Read the rest at:

Batman Beats Spider-Man, Pirates, and Darth Vader at the Box Office

I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but "The Dark Knight" has, based on box office figures this morning and predictions for the rest of the day, passed the earnings of "Spider-Man 3" to become the biggest opening ever for a three-day weekend. Legendary Pictures' "The Dark Knight" brought in an estimated $155.4 million from its 4,366 theaters. "Spider-Man 3" earned $151.1 million during its opening weekend in May 2007. Nolan's first effort in the "Batman" series, 2005's "Batman Begins," opened to $47 million during its first three days and then went on to gross $205 million domestically and $166 million internationally. "The Dark Knight" could easily surpass these figures within the next few days. Read the rest at

"The Dark Knight" Crushes Box Office Records

As expected, The Dark Knight has begun its reign of terror on box office records, bringing in an estimated $18.5 million from midnight screenings last night, a record previously held by "Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith," which grossed $16.9 million from just under 3,700 venues. The highest single-day opening record currently belongs to "Spider-Man 3," which disappointed audiences but still made $59.8 million. "The Dark Knight" opened to 3,000 venues last night and expanded to 4,366 today, beating the record previously held by "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" with 4,362. The above figures do not include revenue from the 3:00 AM and 6:00 AM screenings held at some theaters. The film also shattered IMAX midnight preview records, bringing in a reported $640,000 (the figure is included in the total gross). Stay tuned for more "The Dark Knight" box office information as the weekend continues. Will it crush "Spider-Man 3"'s numbers and restore glory to the superhero film sequel?
