Good Knight! Another Record Falls

Warner Bros.' The Dark Knight dealt another KERPLOW! to a box-office record Tuesday when it crossed the $200-million mark in ticket sales in five days -- the fastest any film has ever reached that milestone. Three films had previously tied for the record, but it had taken each of them eight days to get there. (They were: Spider-Man 2; Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest ; and Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith.) The film has been posting remarkable weekday grosses -- $24.5 million on Monday and $20.9 million on Tuesday. As of Tuesday, its total gross stood at $203.77 million. Meanwhile, Dark Knight producer Charles Roven has told USA Today that he's "scratching my head" over the results. "I've been doing this for a while," he told the newspaper. "I made my first film in 1983. I've had what I thought was a lot of success but never anything like this."
