So I've been watching the global box office in Variety for The Dark Knight, which has slowly crept over $990,000,000 and getting every so close to the billion mark, but almost certainly coming just a little too short of it. There was no way the movie would have bragging rights unless Warner Bros. decided to make certain that it did.
So I have to tell you a smile came to my face when I saw this article in Variety. Even though the film will already have been out in DVD, Warner Bros. has decided there's still something to be said for having the bragging rights on being only the 4th film to make the billion mark in global theatrical box office. I'd like to swear that I'd even see it again, though if my reading pile isn't in better shape then than now I'm not sure I can do the repeat business.
