The Dark Knight movie pulled in $66.4 million on its opening day, more than any other movie before. Batman fans lined up for Dark Knight tickets hours in advance, but to spruce up the wait time, some dressed in themed costumes to add their own superheroic flare to the otherwise boring movie theatre lines.
"The film will likely break the opening weekend record of $151.1 million set by the Spider-Man movie," Reuters reported. No doubt streets will be filled with a lot more creative costumes this weekend and potentially even for a few weeks following it.
"'The Dark Knight,' which cost about $180 million to produce, also picked up a record $18.5 million in sales of tickets for preview screenings ahead of its official opening," Reuters added.
