The Mamma Mia-crew couldn't be more happy when the good news reached them: "Mamma Mia" has beaten the Batman movie "The Dark Knight" - one of the biggest successes within the film industry. The Abba musical has now stolen the first spot on America's movie most rented movie-list. The now past away Heath Ledger who stars as the Joker in Batman, has helped the movie to keep its first spot as the best selling movie. "The Dark Knight" has also been out in the stores for a longer time, so it's rather normal, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Batman sold over 13, 5 millions of copies only the first (!) week, incredible! But last week the crew got to see "Mamma Mia", based on the musical with the same name, beat them on the list.
