The BATMAN BEGINS sequel THE DARK KNIGHT has set another record at the U.S. box office by becoming the first film to pass the $300 million (GBP150 million) in just 10 days.
The film became the first movie to hit the $200 million (GBP100 million) mark in five days after breaking all opening-weekend box office records last week (20Jul08).
Thanks to a staggering $75.6 million ($37.8 million) secondweekend take, the Batman film has racked up over $314 million (GBP157 million) since its release in America 10 days ago.

Meanwhile, Will Ferrell's new comedy Step Brothers opened big in second place with a $30 million (GBP15 million) opening weekend take and ABBA movie musical Mamma Mia! slipped to third with $17.9 million (GBP8.95 million).
The new X-Files film, The X-Files: I Want To Believe, was a disappointment in its first weekend on release - it took in just $10.2 million (GBP5.1 million).
