The Dark Knight Continues To Smash Records

Exactly a year later to the day from when we followed the first (of many) crazy viral marketing scemes from the Dark Knight camp (see:, we find that the movie’s broken yet another record.

The Dark Knight now holds the record for highest grossing first ten days.

That brings the records to:

  • Highest grossing opening weekend
  • Fastest movie to hit $200 million
  • Highest grossing first 7 days
  • Highest grossing first 10 days

And I’m sure they’ll keep coming.

As of now, unofficial estimates for the second weekend are roughly $75.8 million, bringing the movie’s total to $314 million.

And, for the record, it’s still #1 on IMDb’s Top 250 (now with 135,000+ votes.) That’d despite 4,171 people voting a 1 for the film. (3.1% of the overall votes.)  I’m convinced those people are Godfather fans who are trying to bring The Dark Knight down out of the #1 spot.  Keep trying, it’s not going to work.
