The Dark Knight Is No Joke


It’s official: Batman has won out once again. The Dark Knight not only stole the number one spot at the box office in its second weekend, but also broke new records by being the only movie to reach the $300 million mark within just 10 days. Christopher Nolan’s superhero film took in about $75.6 million this weekend, bringing its current total gross more than $314 million.

Meanwhile, Step Brothers, a new comedy starring the crowd-pleasing duo of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, took in a respectable $30 million. Movie musical Mamma Mia! dropped to the number three spot, taking in an approximate $17.8 million.

The return of extra-terrestrials and David Duchovny in The X-Files: I Want to Believe earned a mere $10.2 million in its opening weekend, while Brendan Fraser’s Journey to the Center of the Earth fell to the number five spot, snagging just over $9 million.
