The price is right for the Batman film The Dark Knight. Over America’s Labor Day weekend holiday, the latest Batman movie, The Dark Knight became the 2nd movie in Hollywood history to pass the $500 million dollar mark without the help of inflation. According to Warner Bros. studios, The Dark Knight has made over $502.4 million from domestic American ticket sales.
So what’s the other movie to break the $500 million mark in American ticket sales? James Cameron’s 1997 film Titanic, which made $600.8 million and still remains at #1.
