LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - So what if “The Dark Knight” wasn’t nominated for a best picture Oscar?
Warner Bros. announced Friday that Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga has crossed the $1 billion mark in worldwide revenues, having accumulated a $1,001,082,160 billion gross to date.
With two Oscar wins to its credit for supporting actor (Heath Ledger) and sound editing, the film ranks as the fourth highest worldwide grosser of all time, before adjusting for inflation. “Titanic” is tops with more than $1.8 billion.
Since its release in July, “Knight” also has become Warners’ highest grossing film worldwide as well as the second-highest-grossing film domestically of all time. In its Imax release, it ranks as the largest 2-D digitally remastered Imax release of all time in both the domestic market with $49.6 million and worldwide with a gross of $64.9 million.
