The Dark Knight took the title of “Biggest Opening Weekend Ever” when it raked in $155.34 million this past weekend, beating the previous record holder Spider-Man 3, which made $151.1 million on it’s opening weekend last year. It also set the record for “Biggest Opening Day” ($67.85 million), “Biggest IMAX Opening” ($6.2 million), and about another half dozen records. Add The Dark Knight’s $40 million overseas ticket sales and you have a movie that made close to $200 million.
And deservingly so! I saw the movie yesterday and yes, it is as good as people are saying it is. Actually, it’s probably better. I’m not going to state points on why it was one of the best movies I’ve ever seen in my entire life (we have celebrity shenanigans to get to), but I will say that it is an epic movie of perfection, and you have to see it because there really isn’t anything else quite like it. 10/10!
And all this hoopla about Heath Ledger’s performance getting Oscar buzz only because he died, is complete bull$#!t. His Joker performance deserves, at least, an Oscar nomination because it’s so enthralling it’ll haunt your dreams. Go see The Dark Knight. (Source)
