    As of Tuesday's receipts, Dark Knight is up to $333,929,159 US. That puts it at #16 all-time, right behind Spider-Man 3, and just above Forrest Gump. When Wednesday's receipts come in, it should move up to #14, passing Spidey 3 & Finding Nemo, and be just short of The Two Towers.

    With it grossing $20 million just from Monday & Tuesday, that's about on par with my original estimate of it doing about $35-$40 million M-Th. Should be at about $350 million going into the weekend, where it'll fall just short of $400 million. It'll hit that by Tuesday next week. $500 million by the end of August.

    well, i hope x-files makes it's money back at least. I have not seen, but heard it isn't all that great.
    If Jack Bauer was on Lost, everything would have been solved in 24 hours!

    If Jack Bauer was on Heroes, he wouldn't need to save the cheerleader to save the world.

    Its production budget was 30 million, so with overseas and DVD sales, yeah, it should. I doubt there will be another one, though.

    I thought Mummy would have a strong opening weekend. I do predict a steep drop off with the bad reviews and word of mouth it is getting.

    I am reading they expected it to make $50m, I think word of mouth killed that and I agree it will drop off heavily because several people in our showing left about 2/3 the way in (they were either bored or wanted to do something else I guess)

    The Dark Knight is one of the biggest things hurting the new Mummy movie's box ofice, apparently. I went with my girlfriend last night to see TDK for the third time, and the theatre is still packed. A guy I talked to who works there said that they had sold close to twice as many tickets that weekend for TDK as they had for the Mummy! It looks like more people might have gone to see the movie if the DK option wasn't there, as they're aimed at about the same target audience.

    Dark Knight will hit $400 million tomorrow, and pass Spider-Man Tuesday to grab the #7 all-time spot. I'm guessing it'll do about $20-$25 million during the week, and maybe $25-$30 million next weekend, which should put it around $440-$450 million and #3 all-time by next Monday. It won't pass Star Wars and be #2 all-time until sometime late next week....

    It'll still hit $500 million around the end of the month.....

    Pirates 3 still has the all-time film opening for a week, right? The reason I'm asking is because GTA 4 has the all-time biggest week opening in entertainment ($500K)... was wondering if TDK beat that record, but it looks like it isn't going to.

    Top 10

    1. Dark Knight (for 4th straight week) $26 ($441m LTD)
    2. Pineapple Express $22.4m
    3. Mummy Tomb of the Dragon Emperor $16.8m
    4. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 $10.8m
    5. Step Brothers $8.9m
    6. Mamma Mia $8.08m
    7. Journey to the Center of the Earth $4.85m
    8. Hancock $3.3m
    9. Swing Vote $3.1m
    10. Wall-E $3m

    Dark Knight should surpass $500m sometime in the next 2 weeks, now #3 movie of all time, $20m from #2

    Wall-E has surpassed Ratatouille but still $30m behind CARS, currently ranked 6th highest PIXAR film out of 9 released

    Mummy had a massive 60% drop but added theaters and should easily surpass $100m

    No, TDK beat Pirates in pretty much every measurable way. It holds the biggest weekend gross as well the top 3 to 10 day grosses.

    However, TDK isn't anywhere near the all-time entertainment day record which GTA4 has totally dominated at 310M and then made 500M for its first week. Even if it breaks the 500M mark, I don't think TDK will reach GTA4 since GTA4 is likely well past 500M now.

    Yeah, but why would anyone compare a movie to a game? Movie tickets are what 10 bucks? How much does GTAIV cost? 50 or 60 bucks? Not exactly apples to apples.

    In all fairness, none of the comparions make much sense outside of movies in the same year or at least close to the same year. It doesn't make sense to compare TDK to Titanic when you consider inflation, but people do it anyways, so I figure we should just have fun looking at the big numbers

    I agree, regardless of inflation TDK is still making a large amount of money and 4 weeks in a row at #1 is pretty impressive for any movie during the summer.

    $500m is still $500m though, so its great that Superhero movies are doing so well given the joke genre it used to be in the past relegated to TV movies/shows or not even good enough for direct to video (Nick Fury Agent of Shield with David Hasslehoff comes to mind)

    No.. I doubt it'll be in theatres long enough to beat titanic given it's supposed dvd/blu-ray release date.

    I would love it to beat Titanic. #2 alltime is still amazing! But if it dosn't it certainly has far exceeded expectations! And how cool is it to have 2 superhero movies in the top 10 for the year? (Iron Man, TDK)

    The Dark Knight is the first movie to be No. 1 at the box office four weeks in a row since the last Lord of the Rings movie. I look for it to get knocked off the No. 1 spot next week since Star Wars: Clone Wars and Tropic Thunder open up.

    Yes originally it was intended to be released near Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving) or around Christmas

    However the solicitation has not went out yet to retailers so it "may" have been pushed back to capitalize on theater sales. Titanic was delayed on home video to capitalize on the Academy Awards and give it some anticipation, I can easily see the same with TDK

    Now this is just a rant on my end towards some the things i have been reading in the papers:

    It would be ridiculous to pull a movie from the theaters when its still selling like it is, WB originally said they expected it to get to $500m, they revised that this weekend and said they expect it to top out at $520m

    But I think that is complete crap, it will stay in theaters until nobody wants to see it any longer and as long as it is pulling at least $10-15k a weekend its going to stay a main attraction

    It could very well top $600m despite what most people want to believe just because the legs on the movie are similar to Titanic

    Its only been out for 24 days and is playing in 4025 theaters as of yesterday, most of the next 6 movies on the Top 10 list are playing in almost 1000 theaters less! (only the Mummy is playing in 3700 theaters)

    Keep in mind Iron Man has been running for 15 weeks and Indiana Jones has been 12 weeks, the way analysts are talking they will boot TDK out of the theaters before it gets to 8 or 10?!?

    So to tell me its going to hit $520m in a few weeks and then drop off the face of the earth so that it can be released on home video for no real reason is just retarded, this movie specifically does not need the bonus of a holiday to sell because it is not an impulse buy. If anything the success delays it till closer to Christmas which would be a far better time to put it out

    It will lose #1 next week because of Clone Wars, that much is almost a guarantee but it will still finish highly with the Mummy dropping and the remainder of the Top 10 not making much noise

    Clone Wars is an guarantee? Really? Because it looks like crud I understand it is Star Wars... but it's animated. I haven't even seen an ad for it running on Nickelodeon (or any other station I watch). I would have assumed that Tropic Thunder is going to beat out Clone Wars. Not that I am going to see either of them anyway though.
