I knew that Batman: The Dark Knight was an ass kicker of a movie, but I had no idea that it would do it at the box office. I absolutely loved this film, but the records that this movie has shattered are remarkable. Take a look:
1. Biggest Theatrical Release: 4,366 theaters
2. Biggest Midnight Debut: $18.4 mil
3. Biggest Opening Day: $67.2 mil
4. Biggest Friday: $67.2 mil
5. Biggest Sunday: $43.5 mil
6. Biggest Summer Opening: $158.4 mil
7. Biggest PG-13 Opening: $158.4 mil
8. Biggest All-Time Opening: $158.4 mil
9. Biggest July Opener: $158.4 mil
10. Biggest IMAX Debut: $6.2 mil
11. Fastest to $100 Million: 2 Days
12. Fastest to $200 Million: 5 Days ($203.8 mil)
13. Fastest to $300 Million: 10 Days ($314.2 mil)
The Dark Knight pulled in over this weekend 75.6 million in its second week of release. Most movies would love to have those numbers in their first week of release.
