What was the top grossing movie of 1989?
1989 Gross: $251,188,924. The highest grossing movie of the year was no shiny, happy affair. Tim Burton's Batman was as dark as mainstream movies come with Michael Keaton's Dark Knight essentially playing second fiddle to Jack Nicholson's Joker. The camp inflections of the 1960s TV show had been replaced by a far more sinister vision.
