The action-comedy Tropic Thunder may have managed to win the Labor Day box office weekend taking in $14.3 million from Friday to Monday, but it is The Dark Knight that is making the big headlines.

The Dark Knight came in third over the holiday weekend, raking in another $11 million.

The big news though was not what it made this weekend, but what it has made to date.

The Dark Knight, now the No. 2 movie of all-time at the box office, has managed to surpass $500 million.

It stands behind only the Titanic, which managed to get just above $600 million in its run to the top spot.

The Dark Knight may not be able to reach the Titanic, but many expect it to get to around $550 million along the way.
