The Dark Knight Smashes Another Record: $200 Million In Five Days

That means the film has now made more than Batman Begins did in its entire box-office run, and it means the film has now grossed more than its budget. (It hasn’t exactly broken even yet since theatres get their cut and Warner Bros spent an additional $150 million on marketing beyond the production costs, but it’s getting there.)
