‘The Dark Knight’ Becomes the 7th Highest Grossing Film of All Time

Another day, another record, of sorts, for The Dark Knight. Media By Numbers is reporting that The Dark Knight has shot past Spider-Man to overtake seventh place on the all-time domestic box office charts.

The Dark Knight's Tuesday haul of $5.67 million puts its cumulative total at $405.7 million after just 19 days, besting the $403.7 million that Spider-Man took in during its 2002 summer theatrical run.

The Dark Knight is now $17.5 million behind the sixth-place film, 2006's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.

The Dark Knight was released July 18th, 2008.

          I heard Common is going to play green Lantern.. and wonder woman is to b played by a super model,

          Josh Brolin is 2 old man, Ryan Reynolds as flash?? that'd be great.. here's my ideal jla cast,

          Doug Jones as Martian manhunter,

          James Caviezel as superman,

          Wentworth Miller as batman, (just grow him some hair)

                    Dark Knight will hold the number 1 spot for one more week, then it will be knocked off by Tropic Thunder AND Deathrace. But it will have said 'SCUSE me to Star Wars by then for the number 2 spot..

                            d sinking of Titanic was a tragic moment for d americans.. it was once claimed as the "unsinkable ship".. granpa's of ur old man lived at that time.. and one way of reliving that is by doing a tribute.. remembering the souls of ur old man's old man or granny.. our great great grannys.. so yeah, the term "fresh" is wrong.. but still, 1,500 deaths is not that hard 2 4get.. especially when their offspring's still alive..

                                I understand Elessar26 comments about the dvd and vcr and piracy comments... those are all legit reasons why Titanic made so much money, BUT..

                                What does he mean by "d incident of the Titanic was still fresh at their memories (like what the WTC movie had tried to attempt, but did not get much attention as Titanic did)"? Titanic sunk in 1912... the movie was made in 1997... That's freaking 85 years later. Fresh on peoples minds? I must be missing something?

                                  by the way, Titanic not only holds the record for # 1 in dosmestic gross, it also holds the record of THE only movie in history to be # 1 for 15 weeks straight. Pineapple is about to ruin that record for the dark knight. The dark knight would have made more money if it were released in December, with less competition.

                                  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the dark knight, it's the definition of great entertainment, Its like silence of the lambs meets the god father.

                                    It will not take titanic's place. For sure 2nd place. Although if any movie should beat titanic it should be this one. And even if it makes more than 600.000.00, it still needs to sell about 900.000.00 worth in tickets sales for what titanic sold in tickets back in 98.

                                    So, star wars step a side for the dark knight!!!!!

                                      It has a great chance of passing Star Wars, although would,of course,be hard to pass Titanic.It was just one of those movies that came along, and kept on going for months.

                                          Thats great news but The Dark Knight has to pass Pirates, Star Wars Episode One, E.T., Shrek 2, Star Wars, and Titanic. Titanic is gonna be hard, $600,788,188 when The Dark Knight is at $405,700,000.
