The most anticipated film of the summer showed its mettle by breaking box office records that proved it was anything but a "Dark Knight" for the entire Batman franchise.
Move over Spiderman, Dark Knight prevails
In many ways, this is hardly a surprise. The film has so many facets going for it box office-wise, it had to produce those numbers. The first, it is a sequel of a highly respected comic book hero reboot. Secondly, it had the performance of Heath Ledger that proved impossible for fans that may not have enjoyed comic book films to find themselves in the local cineplex enjoying a film starring 'Batman.'
