Holy billionaire, Batman! Hard to believe that there’s any good economic news out there these days, but here’s a little tidbit from the land of box office: The Dark Knight is just days away from becoming the fourth movie in history to earn more than $1 billion worldwide (not adjusted for inflation). Truly, that’s a huge achievement, not unlike…the victory of “Dorparkr” in EW.com’s now-completed Fall Box Office Challenge!

In all seriousness, congratulations to the big winner of our big fall-movie contest–and congratulations to the Caped Crusader, who has banked an astonishing $528.6 mil domestically (No. 2 all-time behind Titanic‘s $600.8 mil) and about $469 mil internationally (ranking it No. 4 on the historical global scale, behind Titanic, The Lord of the Rings 3, and Pirates of the Caribbean 2). And here’s the really amazing thing: I still haven’t seen it yet! Am I the only one?
