‘Dark Knight’ sets new record for reaching $300M

LOS ANGELES — “The Dark Knight” continues to obliterate box office records, crossing the $300 million mark in just 10 days.

Warner Bros. head of distribution Dan Fellman said Sunday that the epic Batman saga grossed $75.6 million in its second weekend in theaters, pushing its domestic total to $314,245,000.

That surpasses the record set in 2006 by “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,” which took 16 days to make $300 million.

The latest Batman installment had already broken records for best opening weekend at $158.4 million and best single-day with $66.4 million.
