Everyone knew "The Dark Knight" would be a major success. Between the brilliant marketing, glowing reviews and incredible hype surrounding the late Heath Ledger's performance as the Joker, there was no way this wouldn't be one of the biggest hits of the summer movie season.

But, as we've seen this past week, it has surpassed all expectations and become an immediate pop culture phenomenon that people can't seem to stop talking about. The film's status as perhaps the most revered Hollywood blockbuster of the past 10 years is evident in not only the box office numbers (as of press time, "The Dark Knight" was expected to make more money in its first week than its predecessor, "Batman Begins," grossed during its entire domestic run), but also in viewers' reactions.
