Titanic should be worried - Batman: The Dark Knight is heading towards it's $600 million record, with no sign of sinking anytime soon..

"The Dark Knight" is no dark horse -- this is serious.

Heath gets some fresh air

Previously thought impossible, the all-time movie champ has got to be worried as The Dark Knight added another $43 million to its total, giving it the box office win for the first weekend in August.

The Mummy sequel fell just behind Batman with its $42.4 take, proving that America still wants to see more Mummy. (Plan on a fourth for summer 2010.) But, it was ultimately Dark Knight's week yet again -- making a three-peat, the comic book epic is one box office smash.

So far, the movie has earned a reported $384,887,000.
