"The Dark Knight" is Second Highest Grossing FilmSubmit Comment
DreamWorks' big-budget comedy "Tropic Thunder" topped the weekend box office in grossing an estimated $26 million from 3,319 theaters for a five-day opening total of $37 million.

Warner Bros' Batman sequel "The Dark Knight" also was victorious in officially becoming the second highest grossing pic of all time domestically, surpassing the original "Star Wars." For the weekend, "Dark Knight" grossed an estimated $16.8 million from 3,590 runs for a total of $471.5 million in just 30 days.

Warner Bros took the No. 2 spot with "Dark Knight and the No. 3 spot with George Lucas' animated "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," which opened to an estimated $15.5 million from 3,452 runs.

Among other new openings, the R-rated "Mirrors" took advantage of being the only horror pic in the market, coming in No. 4 and debuting to an estimated $11.1 million from 2,664 runs.

Woody Allen pic "Vicky Cristinia Barcelona," bowing on 692 screens placed No. 10 for the weekend in grossing an estimated $3.7 million for a per screen average of $5,361.

The 3-D toon "Fly Me to the Moon" wasn't able to crack the top 10 in its bow, hampered by holdover 3-D film "Journey to the Center of the Earth." "Moon" opened to an estimated $2 million from 452 screens, coming in behind "Journey," which grossed an estimated $3.5 million from 1,405 screens for a total of $88.1 million in its sixth week.
