After 24 days at the top, The Dark Knight has been dethroned at the #1 ranked movie on the Internet Movie Database’s top 250 films of all time list. The Christopher Nolan Batman sequel is now placed #3 on the list.
Interesting to note: The Shawshank Redemption comes out the victor in this contest of internet fandom. A couple weeks ago The Godfather fell to the #3 spot when, presumably, Dark Knight fans began voting down the Francis Ford Coppola gangster film. The result is that Shawshank now sits in the top position, and Godfather places second.
It’s also worth noting that all three films have a weighted 9.1 average user rating. Dark Knight still has more life theatrically and could easily rise or sink further on the list as more moviegoers see the film.
