The Dark Knight has been just tearing up the record book this summer at the box office! It set another record on the weekend: fastest movie to $300 million.
Next question is: when is the fastest-movie-to-$400 million record going to fall? Same for the fastest-to-$500 million record? This movie is really rolling.
A lot of people who couldn't stand Titanic when it came out are hoping the Batman takes down that movie's overall record of $600 million. I have a hard time believing that will happen, but we'll see.
My rant about The Dark Knight's weekend performance here. And as an aside, The X-Files: I Want to Believe was a massive flop. $10.2 million.
