This just in from the AP:
So what if " The Dark Knight " wasn't nominated for a best picture Oscar?
Warner Bros . announced Friday that Christopher Nolan's Batman saga has crossed the $ 1 billion mark in worldwide revenues, having accumulated a $1,001,082,160 billion gross to date.
With two Oscar wins to its credit for supporting actor ( Heath Ledger ) and sound editing, the film ranks as the fourth highest worldwide grosser of all time, before adjusting for inflation. "Titanic" is tops with more than $1.8 billion.
nce its release in July, "Knight" also has become Warners ' highest grosng film worldwide as well as the second-highest-grosng film domestically of all time. In its Imax release, it ranks as the largest 2-D digitally remastered Imax release of all time in both the domestic market with $49.6 million and worldwide with a gross of $64.9 million.
pretty big feat I would say! 1 BILLION DOLLARS!
