Record #3: Dark Knight grosses $66.4m on day one July 19th, 2008

We’d hoped this might hap­pen — after set­ting the mid­night sales record at $18.5m, it looked inevitable that The Dark Knight would go on to beat Spider-man 3’s record of $59.8m. Vari­ety tells us that early reports put The Dark Knight at between $60m and $63m from a record 4366 theaters.

We’re $60m up, just $90m to go to beat that week­end record set by Spidey. Still time to make your pre­dic­tions.

EDIT: Record con­firmed at $66.4m, smash­ing Spider-man’s $59m!
