|IMDB H@x0r3d again!

Someone's done it again! They hacked the All-Time Worldwide Box office
page on IMDB, this time in favor of Dark Knight
. Currently, the site is reporting the film made $5,091,106,180.
Did someone artificially increase the amount the film make, placing it on top?
What is the real amount it made? Why artificially inflate it?
It's like you didn't even read the post.
I went to the page to find the amount because I knew that it was just under a billion last week. But now I have no idea since the page has been hacked/database isn't working correctly.
I just re-read your post and still didn't pick up on why someone would report that it made more money than it actually did, nor the real amount it made as a comparison.
The figure has since been corrected: $971,206,180 world-wide.
It'll never actually deserve the value it's earned.
Yes, I read your review
(which seems to not be available anymore, btw). I definitely think that you are in the minority on this, but I respect your opinion.
That having been said, I plan on driving two hours to see it again on a flat IMAX screen when it re-releases for Oscar season.
I raised the security level for that post since it deals with a bit of personal drama.
I may be in the minority but if people would stop going to see it "for the sake of making it the highest grossing film ever" then MAYBE it'll be worth the value it finishes with. As it is, so many people see it solely for that purpose, and not because it's really that great of a film, that it's ridiculous. Heath Ledger? Cool acting. Sad he died. Did Aaliyah's fans buy up 30 copies of her final cd and flock to Queen of the Damned in her memory? No. So let's give Mr. Ledger a break and quit trying to boost this movie.
Also there were some plot holes, bad acting and bad script. Whoever can't see that is either blinded by inability to understand what good or blinded by fanboyism for batman and/or Heath Ledger.
My opinion, still.
I heard it was a good movie. I'm going to see it because I enjoyed the last one, and its a great score.
No other reason.
If it was free, on TV and half as long... I probably wouldn't have been cranky afterwords.
Yes, the score is fantasstic!
I never did care for Heather. Batman means very little to me. I did go to see what Christopher Nolan had created. (I've been following his work...if you'll pardon the pun.)
I was blown away by what I saw. Plot holes weren't apparent at first. There were a few weak scenes, but the movie on the whole was very entertaining.
When it was first announced that Heath Ledger would be playing the Joker, I thought it was a joke. I was going to boycott the movie...until I started following the project.
I tried to get a group together to rent out the Tennessee Aquarium and initial IMAX theater, but I couldn't get enough people interested and Chattanooga didn't want the film.
Simply put, I liked what I saw and was especially impressed by Ledger's performance. And I'm happy to see the film do so well.
Despite Dark Knight I still don't think that Heath Ledger is an A-list actor by any stretch of the imagination.
I didn't particularly find Ledger interesting in any other film but the Joker was, as my review noted, the only truly worthwhile part of the film as far as I'm concerned. This is.. there were three actors, right? However many... the Joker was awesome and that was plain and simple.
