The Dark Knight Earns $65.6M Overseas


The Dark Knight dominated the international box office with $65.6 million at 7,143 theaters in 43 markets, reports Variety.

With its first European launches and impressive holdover business pushing the foreign total to $126.3 million, the film appears well on its way to becoming a massive blockbuster outside the United States as well. Combined with its record-setting domestic take of $314.2 million, the worldwide gross has already hit $440.5 million in twelve days.

Warner Bros. has held off releasing The Dark Knight in many key markets. France, Germany, Japan, South Korea and Spain will see August openings.
