‘The Dark Knight’ surpasses $400 million
Shrek 2 broke the $400 million mark in 43 days, but that’s no match for our favorite super hero. “The Dark Knight” surpassed that mark in 19 days with $405.7 million, breaking yet another record. The most highly anticipated of the franchise, it’s done wonders for DC and for the movie industry as well. Although it fell a few million short of Spiderman’s biggest third weekend ($45 million), the franchise has much to be proud about.
