TDK hits Billion

02.23.2009

Many of us are still fuming over TDK's exclusion from this year's best picture race, but I think we can all agree that watching Heath's family accept his well-deserved Oscar for best supporting actor last night was a moment many of us won't soon forget. His bravura performance is just one of the many reasons that THE DARK KNIGHT has become only the fourth film to pass the 1 billion dollar mark worldwide.

Warner Bros. Pictures made the announcement Friday afternoon, saying that the combined domestic and international gross had totaled $1,001,082,160 to date -- about $533 million domestically and $567 million overseas. The only other films to hit that mark are TITANIC, THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST. Hmm, I wonder if Nolan feels any pressure with the next film?

It WAS the beast movie of 2008 and it obviously shows...people wanted to watch it over and over again and it was a more memorable movie than Slum Dog Millionaire but that was good too.

Avian005

Just like people still care about the Tim Burton's Batman?
At the time, EVERYONE was in love that Batman film, raving about it. It broke records and there were batman symbol t-shirts as far as the eye could see...
Why is Dark Knight any different?
It's not a classic. It's not Oscar worthy. It's a good comic book movie. And that's all.
(If you honestly think it was the best film of 2008, you need to get out and experience a bit more.)

Oscars are wrong

The Dark Knight was the best film of 2008. I don't care what the oscars say, but their wrong. The Dark Knight will be the only film from '08 that people will still care about over 10 years from now.

It did a lot for Super Hero films last year too.

Oscars are outdated...

TDK should have won more than one Oscar. I still can't believe BB won for best make-up over Hellboy 2. Oscars are so out dated, I will not be surprised to hear that the rating are still low.

I'm still not going to ever call this movie a classic, and I certainly don't think it deserved Best Picture, but it was a fun superhero movie, with some intense sequences and one downright amazing performance by someone who DID deserve to win Best Supporting Actor (R.I.P. again, man).

That said, glad to see this cash-cow broke a billion.

Simply re-confirms the fact that 'The Dark Knight' is a classic.

I SAID IT BEFORE AND I'LL SAY IT AGAIN ...

... 5, 10, 15 years from now people will remember TDK, while Slumdog, Button and others will be forgotten. Mark my words.
