Wow, no one wanted to believe. The X-Files underperformed and that should put an end the franchise (until of course they try to reinvent it years from now with a new cast). I don't know about this Dark Knight movie making so much money, but I hear the new Batman flick is pretty awesome. It will be very interesting to see if The Mummy can stand up against the caped crusader next weekend.
