The Dark Knight Hits $400 Million in Record Time

“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.

Below are last weekend’s box-office totals from Nielsen EDI as of Sunday, August 3rd, as well as a full weekend box-office wrap-up from The Hollywood Reporter.
