Titantic had people returning to the theature to see the movie eight or nine times in some cases. As great as The Dark Knight was, I doubt it will match the umm.. titantic number of tickets sold.

> time will tell...My point is, don't rule out what the Dark Knight could possibly pull off here...for a really dark, edgy and nearly R rated movie to be pulling off these numbers in such a short time is nothing short of impressive...
> it's kind of funny..when Iron Man was tearing it up at the box office, I didn't see nearly as many comments about number of tickets sold or inflation adjustments, etc, etc..just that it was doing well (deservedly so because it was a great movie) and people were happy about it...and for whatever reason, alot of people are comming out of the woodwork about those things in terms of The Dark Knight..
> In any event, TDK has shut alot of the naysayers up..'oh it's all hype..Batman Begins didn't do great so neither will Dark Knight, blah blah'..lol...even if it doesn't beat Titanic, it's still impressive

I completely agree there. I'm just not expecting it to um.. sink Titantic. If I'm wrong, and it does, then congratulations to everyone involed.

I don't mean to be a naysayer about the movie. It's already the highest grossing comic book movie in history, (at least dometically).

And as to your point about Iron Man, I'll be the first to agree that some of the Iron Man fans take the character and everything about way too seriously. (I almost want to say to them "why so serious?" but no point in getting peoples dander up.)
