According to those who know more than me, The Dark Knight movie has sold more that 13.5 million copies world-wide since its release a week ago. Even better, Warner Bros. is reporting that 1.7 million of those copies happen to be in the Blu-Ray format. In 1989 Michael Keaton’s Batman movie hit stores just in time for the holiday season, and became the biggest seller on the VHS format for that year.Â The Batman movie is unique in that it was one of the first movies released on VHS only a few months after its theatrical run.Â Almost 20 years

Good news on this Tuesday – the same day the Dark Knight movie is released on DVD and Blu-Ray – finds the score for the Dark Knight movie eligible for Oscar consideration. The branch initially ruled Nov. 10 that there were too many composers involved in the score; the Academy generally only considers scores that are the work of one or at most two composers. I used to be really big into the scores for films, but now I’m more interested in the whole package and how all the elements work together to create an excellent product. via THR

Warner Bros. has announced it will rerelease The Dark Knight to IMAX theaters in January, right smack dab in the middle of Academy Awards voting season. Warners domestic distribution president Dan Fellman acknowledged ongoing talks with Imax executives about the prospect of restoring the Christian Bale starrer to some number of giant-screen venues in January. It’s uncertain if “Dark Knight” also will reappear in conventional venues at that point. There’s no question the company is sending the flick back to theaters to garner more attention for votes, but don’t think it is an attempt to make a run at Titanic’s
It was another three day weekend that allowed movie goers to flood into theaters to catch the end of the summer movie block buster extravaganza and push The Dark Knight beyond the $500 million mark domestically.Â While not even close to the vast fortune amassed by billionaire Bruce Wayne, the film has done so well, it now sits as only the second film in history to make this much money, surpassing Star Wars Episode IV, with only Titanic left to beat.Â Considering summer is over and Dark Knight would have to make another $140 million before the DVD release, I
I’m sure by now everyone has read Robert Downey Jr.’s comments about the Dark Knight movie, and DC in general, but just in case, let’s shake that hornet’s nest again. My whole thing is that that I saw ‘The Dark Knight’. I feel like I’m dumb because I feel like I don’t get how many things that are so smart. It’s like a Ferrari engine of storytelling and script writing and I’m like, ‘That’s not my idea of what I want to see in a movie.’ I loved ‘The Prestige’ but didn’t understand ‘The Dark Knight’. Didn’t get it, still
I completely let this bit of news slip past me yesterday, but it is a big day for Warner Bros. as it got to thumb its nose at Sony as The Dark Knight passed the $400 million mark in just 18 days, and should have passed Spider-Man overnight. If the box office tickets continue to roll in, The Dark Knight could reach the $500 million making it the second highest grossing title of all time, just behind Titanic. via Variety
