The newest Batman movie is out to prove that it could also be the best.
The Dark Knight has reportedly earned $155.34 million on its opening weekend, making it the biggest opening weekend at the box office, beating Spider-Man 3’s performance a year ago. In fact, it bested Spider-man 3’s record by $4 million. The movie also broke another record set by the Spidey flick–the best debut in IMAX theaters with a gross of $6.2 million spread over 94 locations.
Couple this news with a growing buzz for a posthumous nomination for Heath Ledger for his critic-wowing performance as The Joker and it is getting more and more certain that we’ll see another outing for Bats in the movies in the future.
