The Dark Knight is the top grossing film of 2008 worldwide

Robert Hyde

The Dark Knight
No surprises to see that the Batman film The Dark Knight is the top grossing film in 2008 taking a staggering $994,896,852, thats £689,395,105 at todays rate of exchange.

The hype surrounding the film was immense as we went into the year and with the sad and untimely death of one of it's stars, Heath Ledger, this gave the film and even greater must see edge, and the film didn't disappoint, Ledger especially.

With The Dark Knight the runaway success it was the second biggest film of the year across the globe was a return of an old friend in the shape of Indiana Jones. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull took an incredible $783,011,114 (£542,544,744), not bad for an old man who's not been seen since 1989.

Third most popular film of the year is also the biggest animated feature of the year and Pixar/Disney had nothing to do with it. Jack Black lends his voice to the Kung Fu Panda which took $633,395,021 (£438,636,528) this year worldwide.

Also making strong numbers throughout the world this year were UK favorites Mamma Mia! with $568,704,210 (£393,821,544) and Quantum of Solace with $540,902,659 (£374,504,077) although both films are still plying in UK cinemas.
