“The Dark Knight” has joined an exclusive club: movies that have crossed the $1 billion mark in worldwide revenues.
Warner Bros. announced Friday that Christopher Nolan’s Batman sequel, which has eight nods going into this weekend’s Oscars, has accumulated a gross of $1,001,082,160 billion to date.
Those earnings places the movie fourth in highest worldwide grossers of all time.
It comes in just behind “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” at No. 3, “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” at No. 2 and “Titanic,” which is currently the champion at more than $1.8 billion.
Released on July 18 last year, “The Dark Knight” got off to an impressive start by taking in $158.4 million during its opening weekend.
