Even with the opening weekend of the Olympics, fans still flocked to theaters to see Warner Bros. Dark Knight.  While Pineapple Express came in a close second, the Chris Nolan flick brought in an additional $26 million over the weekend.  This brings the grand total to $441.5 million, meaning the Batman film has passed Shrek 2 to become the third highest domestic grosser of all time.

If that has you sitting up and taking notice, get ready for a major head trip – by this time next week, The Dark Knight should bring in enough money to pass Star Wars for the number 2 spot.
