Early figures show The Dark Knight crossing $400 million on Monday, barely. The $6.28 million Monday tally puts its total at $400.031 million. The 18 days it took Knight to reach $400 million decimated the old record of 43 days set by Shrek 2. Now the question remains: Can it become the fastest to $500 million? Titanic is the only film to ever cross a half a billion, and it did so in 98 days. It’s still a little bit too far off to tell, but there is definitely a possibility of breaking that record.
