I know, right?
And I don't get why everyone thinks TDK's opening records are that special anymore. I'm still surprised it made so much money in the first place considering how dark and serious it is, and it certainly was huge at that time, but TF2 almost beat TDK's 5-day record, and Harry Potter and then Twilight effin' New Moon beat its midnight opening. And then along came Avatar.
It's pretty safe to assume that box office records will be broken every year now. It's just one of those eras.
