The Warner Bros. release has reached another significant box office plateau. Will there be a sequel in the near future?

'Dark Knight' Hits $1 Billion

on February 20, 2009 by BOXOFFICE Staff

It's official, The Dark Knight has hit the $1 billion mark as far as worldwide box office is concerned. The Warner Bros. release is now a member of the same club as Titanic, Lord of the Rings: Return of the King and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead's Man Chest.


After its successful theatrical run this past summer, Warner Bros. released Knight back into theatres on January 23rd, which helped it add nearly $2 million to its already very impressive haul.

Of course, we won't be seeing a sequel to Knight until at least 2011. Director Christopher Nolan has recently committed to making Inception, which will be a psychological thriller, at Warner Bros. for a 2010 release.
