Four weeks into its theatrical release, The Dark Knight is still breaking records.

This weekend it was able to edge past Shrek 2 as the third highest grossing film of all time. In addition, it should also easily top the second highest grosser, the original Star Wars with $460.9 million, by this coming weekend.

Whether or not Knight will be able to top Titanic 's all-time leading haul of $600.7 remains to be the seen, and it will face strong competition this coming week from Tropic Thunder and Star Wars: The Clone Wars and that will almost certainly lead to the end of its run at #1.

In addition to topping Shrek 2 this weekend, Knight also became the first film since 2003's The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King to stay #1 for four straight weekends.
