According to weekend estimates, The Dark Knight has grossed another $75.6 million and now has a total haul of $314 million.

By crossing the $300 million milestone in only 10 days, Knight becomes the fastest movie of all-time to do so. The previous record holder was 2006's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, which did it in 16 days.

Once again, here is the list of records that The Dark Knight has claimed:

#1 - Biggest seven-day gross with $238.6 million (which beat 2006's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, which had grossed $196 million during the same time frame).

#2 - Biggest six-day gross with $222.1 million (which beat 2006's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, which had grossed $183.6 million in the same amount of time)

#3 - Biggest five-day gross with $203.7 million (record was previously held by Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith with $172.8 million).

#4 - Biggest four-day gross with $182.9 million (record was previously held by Spider-Man 3 with $161.4 million).

#5 - Biggest opening weekend gross with $158.4 million (record was previously held by Spider-Man 3 with $151.1 million.

#6 - Biggest Midnight Preview gross with $18,489,000 from 3,040 theatres (which beats the $16.9 million haul that Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith grabbed in 2005).

#7 - Biggest opening weekend debut on IMAX with $6.4 million.

#8 - Biggest IMAX Preview gross with $640,000 (which was appropriately included in the $18.49 million preview number).
