So The Dark Knight Broke Pretty Much Every Weekend Box Office Record Ever
Everyone knows already, but I felt my blog needed the post about it. I have had a Joker pic in my header for months now, after all. Might have to change it to this now.
Let’s go over the records so far (taken from boxofficemojo.com):
1. Widest Opening: 4,366 theaters.
2. Biggest Midnight Gross: $18,489,000
3. Biggest IMAX Midnight Gross: $640,000
4. Biggest Single-Day Gross: $67,165,092
5. Biggest Opening Weekend Gross: $158,411,483
6. Biggest IMAX Opening Weekend Gross: $6,214,061
7. Biggest Sunday Gross: $43,596,151
8. Biggest 4-Day Gross: $182,904,796
9. Biggest 5-Day Gross (with the 5th day not even counted yet): $182,904,796 (plus whatever it made on Tuesday)
It’s safe to say that it has the 6-Day and 7-Day records wrapped up as well. The Dark Knight > all. Especially Spider-Man 3. (As almost always, thank you GAF.)
