The Dark Knight: Half a Billion... and Counting!

by at . Comments

Batman, The Joker and company have gone to a place previously only a doomed cruise ship had ever seen.

As of this weekend, The Dark Knight has raked in over $502.4 million at the box office. It's the second movie of all-time to soar past the half billion dollar mark, needing just half the time it took Titanic to reach that level.

Look, Lucius, Movie Fanatic says we're making lots of money at the box office.

Currently, The Dark Knight ranks second behind Titanic's overall $601 million gross. Let's hope the Batman sequel eventually pushes past that cheesy chick flick.

"It's wonderful!" star Christian Bale said of the movie's box office success. "But I'm not a business man. I just enjoy doing what I do and whatever happens after that is gravy."

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?

The Joker
