Dark Knight to be biggest movie in history

I predicted after watching this flick that The Dark Knight would be historic, breaking all previous box office records. It is already halfway to eclipsing Titanic's mammoth $600 million earnings.

At our local IMAX cinema today, there was one solitary front row ticket by midday today in the 9pm show, nothing else.

Later this week I will be going to IMAX, making it my third view. And I still have a lot more to write about the movie... I believe there is a reason The Dark Knight is so popular. It is a perfect reflection of the crimes (the growing darkness) of our times. It is a welcome, in a way, to the horror of the real world.

"Dark Knight" overshadows box office rivals again
Batman buried his rivals at the
North American box office for a second weekend on Sunday,
racing past $300 million in a record 10 days.
"The Dark Knight" now ranks as the second-biggest movie of
the year, just behind the $315 million haul of "Iron Man," and
the 23rd-biggest of all time.
The last movie to break $400 million was the 2006 "Pirates
of the Caribbean" movie, which ranks No. 6 on the all-time list
with $423 million. The 1997 epic "Titanic" leads the field with
$601 million.
