IMDB Weekend box office Report

I still haven't seen this film yet, so don't worry about spoilers. I waited and haven't yet written a damn thing about The Dark Knight based on hype alone -- but you make a two-and-a-half-hour-long film and it takes in $155 Million in 3 days.... At that point you aren't talking about hype anymore. This one has crossed over into the realm of high performance. The Dark Knight is a cultural phenomenon here in 2008. Stay tuned as we will see how this thing will impact movies, music and popular culture at large. It will.

Wow. Such an unbelievable trip! And no punches were pulled. Even with all the action, this move is more a psychological thriller, a dramatic adventure! This movie is dark and deliberate. Such a phenomenal job by Heath Ledger!

Get out to this one people.
