Box Office Breakdown: The Dark Knight Fights Off the Mummy

The Mummy's Michelle Yeoh

It was a close one. A very close one. But after a tight contest, once again emerged as the box office winner this weekend.

Although it initially appeared as if was going to bring Batman down, the three-quel lost steam at the end. The film, which grossed $40.4 million over the past three days, narrowly lost out to Knight and wound up being the lowest performer in its series. (The Mummy opened at $43.4 million in 1999 while The Mummy Returns scored $68 million in 2001.)

Box Office Breakdown: The Dark Knight Hits $300 Million

The Dark Knight

Despite the combined forces of Ferrell/Reilly and Duchovny/Anderson, Team Bale/Ledger could not be slowed down.

This past week, added a few more records to the franchise’s box office mantle:

  • The film became the fastest movie ever to surpass the $300 million mark. (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest crossed that line in 16 days; Knight did it in 10.)
  • The sequel is now predicted to break $400 million in approximately 18 days. Shrek 2 took 43 days to the same in 2004.
  • IMAX theaters also continue to benefit from the blockbuster’s success. Another $4.6 million was grossed over the weekend.
  • It’s now believed the latest Batman installment could soar to $500 million - making it only the second movie to do so. Domestically, ($601 million) still reigns as the box office champ. (The original Star Wars pocketed $461 million while Shrek 2 earned $436 million.)

Could There Be a Third X-Files Movie?

X-Files MovieIt seems repeating the new title enough times could get you more than one sequel.  It might get you two.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, said there’s a chance we’ll be seeing more of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully in the future.  If things work out favorably at this summer’s box office, the show’s creator would like to move forward with a third installment.  One that might possibly fare better with those who have been long-time devotees of the series. 

While this upcoming release is intended to serve as a stand-alone feature, a new film would most likely touch on the alien abduction theme that was central to the FOX program.  But if fans would like to see that idea come to life, they must first support July 25’s debut of The X-Files: I Want to Believe.

X-Files Movie Name Revealed

X-FilesLast month, lucky attendees of the Paley Festival got a sneak peek of the new movie.  (You can get your own shaky view of that trailer here.)  Now we finally know what to call this highly-anticipated sequel: The X-Files: I Want to Believe.

Detail-oriented fans who can remember that far back (the series ended six years ago) may recognize that ‘Believe’ phrase from a poster in Mulder’s office.

In an interview with the AP, show creator explained the significance behind the title.  “It’s a story that involves the difficulties in mediating faith and science. `I Want to Believe.’ It really does suggest Mulder’s struggle with his faith.”

Those (like me) who couldn’t remember that slogan - or haven’t been introduced to the series at all - should not worry.  The movie was designed to serve as a stand-alone feature that will supposedly “satisfy everyone.”

Be ready for the mysteries to unfold this July 25.
