Warner Bros. made the announcement Friday afternoon, saying that the combined domestic and international gross had totaled $1,001,082,160 to date — about $533 million domestically and $567 million overseas.

Only “Titanic,” with $1.8 billion, “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” have topped the billion-dollar worldwide mark previously.

‘THE DARK KNIGHT’ director, CHRISTOPHER NOLAN, just this week announced his next movie will be the science fiction action film, ‘INCEPTION’, which should push back any possible sequel to 2011 at the earliest. I’m thinking it will be closer to 2012. The length of time between Bat movies doesn’t really concern me as Nolan is going to need some time to plan his next move.

Golden Globes Receive the Golden Shower Treatment

Golden Globe Award

This year’s Golden Globes ceremony has been cancelled, the Los Angeles Times reports on its website.

The move comes after actors vowed to boycott the event in support of striking Hollywood writers.

A press conference and scaled back red carpet event will be held to announce winners instead.

The fate of the Golden Globes has been hanging in the balance ever since striking writers vowed to erect picket lines around the awards show last week.

On Friday, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) announced that its members would not cross picket lines set up by writers, who are locked in a bitter dispute with film and television producers.
