The Dark Knight set records with the biggest opening weekend last week with $153.3 million last weekend.

The Dark Knight doesn't look to be slowing down with the biggest second opening weekend at $75.6 million beating out previous record holder, Shrek 2.  Already the 23 top grossing movie of all time, The Dark Knight has earned a record fast $314.2 million in just 10 days.  Previous record holder was Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest in 14 days.

How did other movies fare in the box office last weekend?

  • Step Brothers - $30 million
  • Mamma Mia! - $17.9 million
  • X-Files: I Want to Believe - $10.2 million
  • Journey to the Center of the Earth - $9.4 million

Does The Dark Knight have what it takes to beat out the current biggest domestic earner of all time, Titantic?  James Cameron should be nervous.

The Dark Knight Quotes

Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now...and so we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector...a dark knight.

Lt. James Gordon

Wanna know how I got these scars? My father was....a drinker. And a fiend. And one night he goes off crazier than usual. Mommy gets the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn't like that. Not. One. Bit. So, me watching, he takes the knife to her, laughing while he does it. Turns to me and he says "Why so serious?" Comes at me with the knife,"Why so serious?" He sticks the blade in my mouth. "Lets put a smile on that face!" And..... Why so serious?
