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: https://www.moviesnobs.net/the-dark-knight-viral-marketing), 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.
