"The Dark Knight" took in a record $155.34 million in its first weekend, topping the previous best of $151.1 million for "Spider-Man 3" in May 2007 and pacing Hollywood to its biggest weekend ever, according to studio estimates Sunday.However, if you correct for inflation (calculator here), $151.1 million in 2007 is equivalent to $159.46 in 2008. Thus in real terms, Spider-Man 3 is still ahead of The Dark Knight. I wonder what the top grossing movie of all time really is, adjusted for inflation, or perhaps as a % of GDP.
