August 21, 2008 - Dark Knight / summer box office recap
Scooped on Friday, December 26, 2008
Only two weeks till Labor Day weekend and the end of summer, and but Hollywood is already starting to celebrate the fact that this summer’s box office should match last year’s record-breaking $4.16 billion – and last year, remember, had the trio of threequels (Spider-Man 3, Shrek 3, Pirates of the Carribbean: At World’s End). What hero could help vanquish a low economy and high gas prices? Wayne, Bruce Wayne.
Okay, it’s not just The Dark Knight, but his $400 million – and a number of films that appealed to all types of moviegoers, from Iron Man to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull to Wall-E. And some, like Speed Racer and The Love Guru, who didn’t help so much.
