LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Warner Brothers executive says he knew the latest Batman sequel would be big, but not this big.
Two days after opening, "The Dark Knight" has set a box-office record. The film has taken in more than 155 million dollars on its debut weekend. That beats "Spider-Man 3," which held the previous record after its May 2007 opening.
The Christian Bale-Heath Ledger film is expected to top the 200-million-dollar mark by the end of the week.
