Why So Serious??
Batman sequel The Dark Knight has a reason to celebrate or a few million...the movie premiered in number one and not just this weekend. It brought in $155 million making it the number one debuting movie ever and beating out the previous spot holder Spider Man 3 which brought in a little over $151 mill. However there is speculation that higher ticket prices caused the Batman film to make more since inflation raised ticket costs from May 2007 when the Spidey movie came out. After the math was done Spider sold 21.96 million tickets and Batman 21.94. O man, but the dollar signs take the title and Batman is expected to break the $200 mill line this weekend.
