The latest Batman flick, The Dark Knight, grossed an estimated $18.5 million so far, the most ever for midnight shows. The previous record was held by Star Wars, Episode III: The Revenge of the Sith, which grossed $16.9 million.

The highest single day opening record is currently held by Spider-man 3 which made $59.8 million. The Dark Knight made an estimated around $64 million in its first day.

Some box office experts are saying the Christopher Nolan-directed flick may reach $170 million this weekend. HOLY!

Did anyone ever doubt that this movie would be/ will be huge? If so, they are seriously mistaken. I’m seeing it tonight! Yeah! I love Heath! God be with his daughter without her father, such a tsad turn of events. I guess if its your time to go — leave life at its peak…

of course.

this is the best super-hero movie i’ve ever seen.

this is one of the best movie i’ve seen in years.

Don’t usually care much for the Batman movies, but was blown away by this one. Absolutely loved it. Both Bale and Ledger go so deep into character that it is difficult to believe they aren’t really those that they portray!

i just saw the movie to 2:00. and it ended at 4:30. and diz waz the best movie ever!! i loved it. heath did a great job soo did christan

I LOVE Batman films (though to be honest I kind of hated the Batman film with George Clooney & Arnie in…plus Batman Begins didn’t really do much for me) But I’m ridiculously excited to see this film, looks spectacular, it has my favourite Batman villain in, looks fantastically acted & all reviews so far have been positive. However, I refuse to go see this (& pretty much every film ever made from now on) at the cinema. The prices for the UK (or at least where I live in the UK) are RIDICULOUS…like £10 (almost $20) just for a standard seat with no extras on a non-weekend day. Go on the weekend & you can end up paying £15 jsut for one ticket! (almost $30). I refuse to do so, don’t care what the film is. I’ll either download this from somewhere or wait til the DVD.

The cinema sucks now.

i had the pleasure of seeing this movie at midnight!!! And u will not be disappointed… The movie amazing.. Heath Ledger phenomenal… To Me his best work…He is greatly missed, but at least we get to see how wonderful an actor this man was! All the actors come together so well. Christian Bale rocks as BATMAN!!!

Heath Ledger was amazing in it! RIP

OF COURSE!! the movie was incredible!!!!!!!! I’m seeing it tonight again and then again and again..

Joker was so real! Heath gave a mesmorizing performance.

loved everything about the movie, but definitely the Joker’s character made it a lot better. A LOTTT.

“want to see a magic trick?”

“I just want my phone call!”

“I don’t want to kill you. What would I do without you? ”

the hospital scene was incredible. the pencil scene.. yes more!! I can’t get enough of the Joker.

I went this morning, and this movie was just completely amazing. It definitely lived up to the hype, and Heath was amazing in his role as Joker.

that ‘magic trick’ part was fcuking crazy! lmao

aaron eckhart [harvey dent/ two-face] was great… he was a lot better than i thought he would be.

I went to a midnight showing and it was fantastic!!! In my city they were only planning on one midnight showing at each theatre (there’s 2 big ones) originally with the possible addition of one at each theatre depending on demand, but the demand was so big they ended up have 4 midnight showings EACH! All sold out of course! And my city is only 100,000 people… I can’t imagine what it is like in major cities! I would strongly recommend seeing it! It was great! Heath was incredible! Everyone was raving and couldn’t get enough!

I LOVED IT. I saw it at midnight as well, I tried getting the huge IMAX like screen (Cine Capri is what we call it here in Phoenix) but it was completely sold out therefore I had to settle for just a regular theater. It was still great. I hope it breaks all the records.

saw it yesterday at midnight. AMAZING!
Rip Heath… i just loved his acting! he knows how to be funny in this kind of thrilling movie!

I’ve been in IMAX at midnight and you have to see it there. It was so huge. Great experience!!! Ch. Bale rules!!! As always!

I’ve bowed today when the movie was over.

We are so, so fortunate to be witnessing a Legend in the making! Heath’s Joker will be in history forever.

I’ve cried when I found out he’d died. I’ve cried today when I’ve watched him being BRILLIANT! So sad that this is his last role. He was going to give us so much more!

And last but not least – Christian Bale’s Batman is the best. Ever.
