The Dark Knight drops to fourth, but makes 10.3 million on a mere 37.1 percent drop; it has made over 870 million worldwide so far.  Star Wars: The Clone Wars rounds out the Top Five, but craters 61.3 percent with a 5.7 million take.  The longstots opened in eighth place, while The Rocker debuted in twelfth.
