As thousands crowded into the San Diego Convention Center, many more filed into theaters — apparently to watch The Dark Knight. The Warner Bros. sequel led the weekend box office, raking in an estimated $75.6 million and pushing its domestic total over $300 million in just 10 days.
That figure — $314.2 million, if you want to be precise — outpaces the 16-day record set by Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, released in July 2006.
Sony’s Step Brothers came in at No. 2, followed by Universal’s Mama Mia! and Fox’s The X-Files: I Want to Believe.
