Dark Knight Tops $1 Billion

“The Dark Knight” has officially passed the $1 billion in worldwide box office revenue mark, becoming only the fourth film to do so reports Variety.

Warners confirmed that as of Friday afternoon, the combined domestic and international gross had totaled $1,001,082,160 to date – around $533 million domestically and $567 million overseas. Grosses from Ecuador and the IMAX re-release helped nudge the film over the mark which it was $4 million shy of in December.

It now sits behind “Titanic” ($1.842 billion), “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” ($1.119 billion) and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” ($1.066 billion) on the global box-office tally.
