    I saw Tropic Thunder today it was funny but I expect we will be getting back in the normal only #1 for the opening week pattern.

    When Tropic Thunder's cumulative gross income is more than the Dark Knights, then I'll be impressed.

    Four weeks is a great run and unheard of during the summer season. I don't see any reason for anyone to be sad.

    Until any of these movies comes close to the total Dark Knight did i could care less.

    It was bound to happen with all the crap movies coming out(tropic thunder is the exception).

    DK did knock out the other big summer movie mummy in no time and pineapple express.

    DK was a good movie, but not nearly as good as it was hyped up to be. Regardless of the box office numbers, Iron Man is the best film of the year so far.

    Tropic Thunder looks like it'll be a good movie, but no where near as good as The Dark Knight. Now that HP:HBP has been pushed back to next year, The Dark Knight is the best movie of the year, imo.

    I feel sick using that cliched quotation/agreement method, but it matches my opinion perfectly.

    I liked Iron Man, but it wasn't as good as TDK. The Joker as a darker character is much more interesting than the stereotypical "corporate villain."

    I honestly did not believe all the hype sorrounding the Dark Knight. I found Batman Begins to be really boring, while everyone else loved it. So when everyone seemed to love DK, I was thinking it may turn out like BB and it'll turn out boring to me again. But I actually liked Dark Knight.

    Also, I won't rank movies. (unless someone wants to pay me for it). The way I see it, if I enjoyed a movie in the theaters, I'll buy the DVD. The only movies I saw this year was Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, and the Dark Knight. And I'm buying all of these on DVD.

    Thunder beat star wars also.

    Is this the first star wars film not to get first place on it's first week?

    Why do people (and by people I mean you guys posting in this thread) give a rats ass if the Dark Knight is the highest grossing movie of the year, really?

    The Dark Knight Defense force is... to put it plainly; kinda crazy.


    "OMG IT OUTSOLD <insert generic movie here> VICTORY FOR US."

    Whut?
