The Dark Knight has defeated Shrek 2 and is now on its way to being the second highest grossing in movie history. It just beat out Shrek 2 with over $440 million and all it needs is another $20 million and its going to be number 2. Without question this will happen. But can it bring down titanic which grossed over $600million? I cant say.

From Warner Brothers comes the official synopsis for The Dark Knight. The Dark Knight reunites director Christopher Nolan with star Christian Bale, who returns to continue Batman’s war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as the Joker (Heath Ledger), who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces the Dark Knight ever closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante.
