Warner Waiting on Nolan for “The Dark Knight” Sequel + TDK Passes $500M Domestic, $900M Worldwide September 1, 2008 11:59 pm

Posted by Rosario T. Calabria in Box Office, Movies, News, The Dark Knight.

In an article from The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. revealed that the studio is waiting on director Christopher Nolanto come up with a “story and a plan”:

“There are a lot of us who emotionally would love to do it,” producer Charles Roven says. “But it’s really Chris’ call. Chris is the kind of filmmaker who just doesn’t think about the next movie before he has completely finished the movie he is working on.”

For now, Nolan is taking a well-earned vacation.

Says Roven, “When he comes back, we will see how he feels.”

Meanwhile, The Dark Knight drew a third place $8.62M (up one spot from the week prior) and now stands at $502.29M domestically.  It’s only the second movie in the history of North American box office to reach $500M and the fastest to ever do it (45 days–Titanic hit $500M in 91 days).  The movie’s expected to add another $2.41M on Monday ($504.7M).

In terms of overseas grosses, the movie has taken in $417M overseas, pushing its worldwide cume to $921.7M.

With only an estimated 18.3% drop from last weekend and the film performing better than expected during the weekdays, my estimate has been revised upward to between $518-527M.
