The Dark Knight Breaks $300,000,000 Record

Batman is kicking some serious ass right now. First the box office, then Christian Bale's mom and sis and now the IMDB Top 250 films.

The Dark Knight has broken another box office record by passing the $300 million mark in just 10 days, beating the previous record holder Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest's gross of $300 mil in 16 days. That's an entire week people!!

In edition to that IMDB has voted The Dark Knight as #1 in their top 250 films of all time. Surpassing cinema greats like Shawshank Redemption and the previous #1 The Godfather. Lets see how long they can hold on up there since Godfather fanatics are starting a petition to put Godfather back at #1.

A lot of speculation about Daniel Day-Lewis or Johnny Depp replacing Heath Ledger as The Joker. Now I like both these guys but I really hope they honor Heath's last completed performance and just leave it as it is and move on to something else.
There's also speculations about The Riddler being in the third one because of the appearance of Mister Reese (the accountant who tried to expose Batman on TV and cost Bruce Wayne a Lamborghini) in The Dark Knight. Get it? Mister Reese/Mysteries. But I don't think it's true cause The Riddler's real name is Edward Nigma.
Of course there's the rumor about Philip Seymour Hoffman being The Penguin. But I don't think he'll do it cause he's just too damn cool to do a comic book movie.

We'll just have to wait and see I guess.
