“Dark Knight Rises” to the Occasion: 2000 Sold Out Shows Across the Country


UPDATE THURSDAY 7:50pm: Fandango reports 2000 sold out shows across the country, and that “The Dark Knight” is doing as well or better than the record breaking “Avengers” from earlier this summer. Here it comes, Bat – fans. A Bat tsunami!

Fandango, the online movie ticket service, says 91% of all its ticket sales today are for “The Dark Knight Rises.” Christopher Nolan’s third and final Batman movie already has $25 million in advance sales from yesterday. Basically, with scalpers charging huge mark ups for tickets in New York, the Caped Crusader is about to smash all records this weekend. Get this: secondary ticket broker Stub Hub is indicating over 25 sold out screenings in Manhattan starting at midnight tonight and going through the middle of the night and all day tomorrow through Friday night. http://tinyurl.com/c3md3zq. They don’t even have marked up tickets to sell. There are no tickets. Holy ticket drought, Batman! Keep coming back here for updates….
