"The Dark Knight" has climbed past $400 million in just 18 days, hitting the mark faster than any film ever, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film should pass the $403.7 million tally of "Spider-Man" today, which would move it up to seventh on the all-time box office charts. It would also make the film the top-grossing comic-book adaptation of all time.
