The Dark Knight strikes — and then strikes again
The Dark Knight is the gift that keeps on giving for Warner Bros. and Imax.
Hollywood gossip columnist Nikki Finke reports the blockbuster already has grossed $997.5 million worldwide — $528.5 million domestically and $469 million internationally — since its North American release on July 18, and should hit $1 billion any day now.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Dark Knight helped giant-screen exhibitor Imax reduce its third-quarter loss. For good measure, the movie is being re-released in Imax venues in January.
Rumor mill: McG being floated as Wonder Woman director
If I knew how to make the words “rumor mill” flash in giant magenta type, I’d use it for this item: IESB reports a “source at WB Burbank” says McG is rumored as the possible director for Warner Bros.’ adaptation of Wonder Woman.
I don’t know how much there is to it, though, as McG’s name seems to get attached to every third movie during the early stages of development. Still, IESB’s Robert Sanchez says “a few other industry insiders” have heard the rumor, too.
McG, who’s helming Terminator Salvation, also directed both Charlie’s Angels movies and We Are Marshall.
