Whenever there's a chance to talk about The Dark Knight, you know we're up for it. Christopher Nolan's critically acclaimed film has broken yet another box office record, becoming the fastest movie to earn $300 million in just two weeks.
Warner Bros. Studios is still flooded with champagne fluids as the company continues to celebrate the film's ongoing success. Batman's triumphant return also holds the best midnight opening record, best opening-weekend record, best selling IMAX screening and best reason to make a grown man cry record.
Currently, The Dark Knight awaits behind Iron Man's $315 million box office earning, but obviously it won't take too long till it goes to the top. Pirates of the Carrbean: Dead Man's Chest took 16 days to earn $300 million, which was the former record holder. Now, Batman's set to break the $400 million barrier, which took Universal's Shrek 2 over 43 days to earn. At this pace, analysts are saying that The Dark Knight might even take the top-grossing film of all time spot, which has been held by Titanic for 10 years.
