The Dark Knight Sets New Record: $400 Million In 18 Days

The Dark Knight has just crossed the $400 million mark in a record setting amount of time – just 18 days of release. To give you an idea of just how big that is, let me share with you the previous record holder – Shrek 2, which crossed the same $400 mark in 43 days! It's also worth noting that the movie is still grossing over $6 million on a Monday, which is more money than X-Files 2 took in during the film's premiere Saturday/Sunday. [mediabynumbers]
