The head of Star Wars dark character Darth Vader looms high over the New Jersey skyline in the Quik Chek Hot Air Balloon Festival in Readington, New Jersey on July 25, 2008 (Photo:AP/EvansM,) and the movie The Dark Knight sizzles with a new batman record in its sprint to Hollywood’s book of prolific profits.
So far, the batman movie had raked in 400.04 million of capitalistic Hollywood bonanza after 18 days of domestic run. It is racing on towards the $500 million mark to be the top grossing comic-book adaptation ever, putting aside the record of Spiderman. The film is expected to beat the original bonanza of Star Wars of $461 million, making it the 2nd, next to Titanic’s $600.9 million in all time domestic record of gains. Credit: AP/Germain,D.
