The Dark Knight Breaks $1 billion

Posted on 20 February 2009 by Quaid

Until today, only three films in history had ever grossed over one billion dollars theatrically.  dark_knight_poster1Those movies were Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, and Titanic.

Now you can add Chris Nolan’s Batman movie to that list.

The Dark Knight has now grossed $1,001,082,160.  I just wanted you to see that typed out.  

When it was re-released on January 23, it was $4 million away from the magic number.  

So, given the choice between the Oscar and crossing the $1 billion dollar mark, which do you think Warner Bros. would choose?  Yeah…
