The Dark Knight has also become the highest grossing US box-office film of the summer (and so likely the year) topping Iron Man's 314 million in just 11 days. A feat that Indiana Jones has been trying to do for the last two months, still without success.
We saw The Dark Knight in a unique setting, the Valley Brook Drive-in in Lyons Falls, NY. (A must-do part of our annual trek to the edge of the Adirondack State Park). Though a drive-in setting doesn't quite deliver state of the art screenings, it was still one hell of a ride and one which we'll be looking to repeat in a higher tech setting later this week.
We'll sum up with this. The Dark Knight is the best superhero based film (it seems a disservice to simply call this a superhero movie) we've ever seen. It's also one of the best action films we've ever seen and it's by far the best sequel. If you have even the slightest interest, go. You will be throughly entertained.
