THE DARK KNIGHT and WATCHMEN are the hottest thing going this week.
It looks like THE DARK KNIGHT is on track to have the biggest opening weekend of ALLLLLLLLL TIME:
SUNDAY AM: Warner Bros is reporting The Dark Knight will finish with a total North American weekend take of $155.3M. Here’s the surprising studio breakdown: $67.8 million Friday, including those record-setting opening day midnight shows; $48 million Saturday (-29%), and projected $39.4 million Sunday (-18%). So if Sunday holds up, that FSS (Fri-Sat-Sun) non-holiday figure will be enough to snag the record from Spider-Man 3′s $151.1 million. But it’ll be close.
In addition, IMDB users have voted it the #1 movie of ALLLLLLLL TIME (beating THE GODFATHER…for now. We predict sanity will prevail eventually.).
