'Dark Knight' becomes best selling movie of 2008, on iTunes Apple has noted that despite not even being released yet, the Warner Bros. smash hit The Dark Knight has already become the best selling movie download of the year on iTunes.
According to figures from BoxOfficeMojo, "The Dark Knight" is $4 million USD away from making $1 billion in theaters and analysts expect DVD, Blu-ray and digital sales to break records as well.

"The Dark Knight" just beat out the Pixar smash hit WALL-E as the top selling download, a more impressive fact because The Dark Knight is running on only pre-orders. Numbers 3-5 in the top selling movies of the year are "Kung Fu Panda," "Iron Man" and "National Treasure: Book of Secrets."

After all the Batman films that failed... This one without doubt, was the best. I hated Batman films... was forced to watch this one... and boy...
The wait was DEFINENTLY worth it.
