‘Dark Knight’ Still Number One, Closing in on ‘Star Wars’

Christopher Nolan’s second Batman movie, ‘The Dark Knight,’ is number one at the box office for a fourth straight week, bringing it’s domestic haul to $441.5 million.  This brings the movie to third in the highest grossing films in the US.  The first ‘Star Wars,’ movie is second with $461 million.  ‘Titanic’ is number one with $600 million.

I think this pretty much means that ‘Star Wars’ is a goner as far as this record goes.  With regards to ‘Titanic,’ I don’t know if Nolan’s movie has got the legs to surpass that juggernaut.  We’ll have to wait and see.

Here are the Box Office Totals

1. The Dark Knight – $26M
2. Pineapple Express – $22.4M
3. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor – $16.2M
4. The 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 – $4.86M
8. Hancock – $3.3M
9. Swing Vote – $3.11M
10. WALL-E – $3.04M
