“The Dark Knight” breaks opening-weekend record

by Matthew Price Published: July 20, 2008

The Associated Press is reporting that “The Dark Knight” will bring in $155 million for its opening weekend, besting “Spider-Man 3″‘s $151 million.  Anecdotal reports locally lead me to believe that the local turnout for “The Dark Knight” was exceptional all weekend.  And high levels of crowds were reported to me at several cinemas at the midnight showings and Friday night.
