For Hollywood, The Dark Knight is serving as a white knight in shining armor, as far as summer box office receipts go.
After earning the top spot for the fourth weekend in a row, earning $26 million over the last three dyas, the Batman sequel is now the third-biggest movie of all time. Titanic fans better enjoy their favorite film's perch at number-one for as long as they can. It's soon going down.
Here's a look at the complete top five at the box office:
- The Dark Knight: $26 million
- Pineapple Express: $22.4 million
- The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor: $16 million
- The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2: $10.8 million
- Step Brothers: $8.9 million
