Twilight Bigger than the Dark Knight?

E! Online has an article about how ‘Twilight’ was bigger than ‘The Dark Knight’ when it comes to the overall domestic gross as of this past Sunday.

If only Wall Street had bet on Twilight. Or Hannah Montana. Or Kirk Cameron.

With a $167.3 million overall domestic take as Sunday, per Box Office Mojo, Twilight made more than four times its reported $37 million production budget—the best rate of return on any film in the 2008 Top 10, including The Dark Knight.

The Batman epic was a pretty good investment, too, very nearly tripling its gargantuan $185 million budget with a $530.8 million domestic take, Hollywood’s second-biggest ever.

Still, The Dark Knight was nothing compared to these off-the-charts performers: High School Musical 3: Senior Year ($89.7 million), which grossed about eight times its $11 million budget; the Hannah Montana concert movie, which made about nine times its $7 million budget; and Cameron’s Fireproof, which cost $500,000 to produce, and made $33.1 million—or, more than 60 times its budget.
