Leave it to the vampires!

Apparently, even the animated ones are MASSIVE money-makers!

That’s right, the Adam Sandler and Selena Gomez-voiced Hotel Transylvania broke box office records for the month of September by pulling in $43 million during its premiere weekend, which also made it the highest-grossing flick since The Dark Knight Rises!

Meanwhile, Joseph Gordon Levitt recovered from his last flick, Premium Rush, and its weak opening with Looper, which came in second at $21.2 million!

Not too shabby, considering it was only MADE for $30 million!

And even though it’s only been released in 335 theaters, Anna Kendrick‘s Pitch Perfect pulled in $5.2 million, which averages to $15,560 per screen!

AH-Mazing! And so well-deserved!

Here’s hoping that the buzz propels it to the top of the list when it gets released wide next weekend!

And ch-ch-check out the full top box office ten…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Hotel Transylvania, $43 million
Looper, $21.2 million

Holy SHIZ! It is one good day to be a superhero!

The Dark Knight Rises has reportedly pulled in $431.2 million domestically, and $574 overseas…which combined, makes it the 13th film ever to total over a billion dollars, with an estimated, collective $1.005!

And yes, that means the the concluding chapter the Christopher Nolan-directed Batman trilogy has beaten its predecessor, The Dark Knight, which made $1.003 billion back in 2008!

Meanwhile, its action companion this summer The Avengers has now passed $1.5 BILLION worldwide in its 19th week released globally, and is now officially the world’s THIRD biggest movie OF ALL TIME, with only Titanic and Avatar standing in its way!

Incredible!

James Cameron better enjoy his throne while he has it, though!

We have a feeling that The Avengers 2 will be coming for him HARD when it’s released in a few years!

Ha!
