THE DARK KNIGHT has made $400M in 18 days. The previous record for quickest-to-400M was SHREK 2. It took SHREK 2 FORTY THREE DAYS to reach this.
The only thing really left for TDK to do is overtake TITANIC. Highly unlikely, but possible. After this many days into TITANIC’s run, the James Cameron epic had only $157M.
