This is absolutely the last box office post I run for a while. I promise.
Initial estimates had The Dark Knight clearing $157 million over the weekend. This figure was revised downward to $155.3 million on Sunday, apparently accompanied by griping from previous record holder Sony who claimed the numbers were still inflated.
Well, the final figures are in and the Bat actually took in $158.3 million.
Meanwhile the much maligned Mamma Mia! raked in $27.6 million of its own, helping the whole weekend to a record setting $250+ million. The previous record was $218.4 million in July ’07 led by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Cleveland Steamer.
What does it all mean? Absolutely nothing. I’m just saying.
This concludes your weekly bean counting.
