The Associated Press reports:
“The Dark Knight” continues to obliterate box office records, crossing the $300 million mark in just 10 days.
The epic Batman saga grossed $75.6 million in its second weekend in theaters, pushing its domestic total to $314,245,000, Warner Bros. head of distribution Dan Fellman said Sunday.
That surpasses the record set in 2006 by “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,” which took 16 days to make $300 million.
The film also smashed box office records on IMAX screens, generating $16.3 million in its first 10 days. Chairman and president of IMAX Film Entertainment, Greg Foster, reiterates the interest of other directors who want to follow director Christopher Nolan’s suit: “There are many important filmmakers who we’ve spoken with in the last couple of weeks about shooting with IMAX cameras.”
