The Dark Knight Breaks All Records!

Well, "The Dark Knight", Christopher Nolan's latest Batman film with Christian Bale and the late Heath Ledger, opened this Friday, July 19th, 2008, and is on its to way to breaking all records.

On its first day, it took more than 66 million dollars, breaking three records:
- Best Opening Day
- Best Day
- Best Friday

All three records were held by Spiderman 3, with 60 millions dollars when it opened last year. That's a 10% improvement.

Next step for "The Dark Knight": Best Saturday (Spidey 3: 51 million), Best Sunday (Spidey 3: 40 million), and of course, Best opening week-end (spiderman 3: 151 million).

Stay tuned, I will keep you informed, right here!


The first estimations are in: "The Dark Knight" takes 155 million dollars in its opening week-end, and breaks Spiderman 3's record.

More as soon as official numbers are in.


As for the movie, I thought it was fantastic. although maybe not as well constructed as Batman Begins, and maybe not as riveting.

But most of all, everything that was said about Heath Ledger's performance is true. And not just because of the aura due to his death. His performance is out of this world, and in a few days, everybody will have forgotten who Jack Nicholson is.
