"The Dark Knight Rises" won't open until July 20, but tickets for a midnight showing are not only on sale - some of them have already been bought out completely.
Entertainment Weekly reports that anxious fans can purchase admission to "The Dark Knight Rises" midnight opening on July 19 in IMAX theaters in San Francisco and Los Angeles using movie ticket e-retailer Fandango.
Unfortunately for those living in the Big Apple, it is already sold out of New York midnight IMAX showings.
A Fandango rep tells EW that it's not unheard of for tickets to go on sale so far in advance, although this is earlier even than "Avatar's" pre-sale, which began four months before it was released in December of 2009.
The furor for this film surely has studio execs at Warner Bros. dreaming of another record-setting box office showing, as "Dark Knight Rises" predecessor, "The Dark Knight," holds the No. 2 spot for best opening weekend thanks to the $158 million it brought in at the box office in 2008.
Woah this blog is wonderful i really like reading your posts. Stay up the great paintings! You know, lots of people are looking around for this info, you can aid them greatly.
There is definately a lot to find out about this issue. I really like all the points you've made.
The fast red
HA! Not going anywhere, and I am at work, getting paid and able to spend as much time online as I would like. I love how everyone here is jumping on me when this started as me telling a c r a p obsessed loser to stop his freakish actions. Whatever... You're probably all sitting in the library next to each other. Can't wait for your study hall to be over...
How come Leo keeps telling people to go back to class, etc.? Sounds like he doesn't have much to do but try to defend himself against who he thinks are teenagers. Why aren't you working or doing something else productive and not spending hours on a Batman discussion board?
Leo, this is a public forum. If you can't take the heat, get out of here! And stop the name calling. Obviously, YOU have an inferiority complex–probably well earned.
Yes, yes. Defend the c r a p obsessed loser-freak. *Sigh* Just another 70 pound nerd trying to flex his internetz skillz... Just go away kid.
I'll wait until I can get this on DVD.
Yes, I have them also. They are called underoos! I have the HULK,Thor and Spiderman too.
When is the film releasing in India? Awaiting the same having been thrilled by "Dark Knight", the villain "Joker" being one of the most unforgettable roles in movie history according to me."BANKRUPTCY BAHOOTH DHOOR HAIN? ITS TIME TO MPVE ON "DARK KNIGHT"?
@Terrell, have some respect man. I'm trying to rest in peace. oh, since I've got your eye, would you pass a message to my boyfriend, Jake. " Sorry about slipping you the tongue in that one movie we did, I know it was gross, but tickled a little,lol"
Yes I love it. I want more...way more! Batman is fake and gay just like all you losers. Stuff it in and don't stop.
I (the real Leo) would never resort to calling anyone gay. Just another closeted 14 year old, posting under my name. Wow. Original.
Is Heath Ledger going to be in this one?
And the award goes to....
This is the funniest comment in the thred . Excelsiour!
Since YOU were the first to respond to tracie, when tracie was not commenting to YOU, about YOU, or for YOU, maybe it's YOU, Leo, who should mind YOUR own business.
Anyone with half an ounce of sense would be able to see I am replying to the freak (aka tracie). Dave and DJCowboy, again, mind your own business.
They're called "underoos". Get it right lol!
Hi Girls and Boys. If you ever feel like you need to talk to some1, need advice or just need to vent. Relationship issues, family issues, work, school ... Whatever bother you tell Mimi on Facebook "ONE LOVE" request to be added and you will. There will be girls and boys from all over the country. No matter what is your gender, skin color, or religion you are welcome. As long as you don not insult each other. This project was just created, it is 100% free and I do it to help people who sometimes struggle with life and even the ones who struggle in silence.
Mimi is here.
You posted it on a public forum. There IS no 'mind your own business' here.
Leo, I like how you tell someone to mind their own business on a public forum where everyone can see what you write.
THANK YOU! These movies are average at best. Here today gone tomorrow super hero flicks mascaraing as something more. The plot and structure of TDK was a mess. The climax comes in the middle of the film with the Joker truck chase. Then the film drags on for another hour only to to have batman use cell phones to go after the Joker while some melodrama plays out in the river. Meh. Nolan is way over rated. And before you start on about Inception, he uses the same tonal soundtrack (stolen from Kubrick) and cinematography as these Batman films. He's a competent director but his movies are more technical exercise than storytelling. Tell me you would not have been surprised to see Batman show up in the BatSki and pull Leo out of that snow base at the end of Inception.
If this movie is even slightly more intelligent, suspenseful, and well-written as The Dark Knight, it might just succeed in being a big piece of crap.
Speaking of superheroes, I was disappointed by how poor the Green Lantern, Capt. Amer. and Thor were. I was excited when I learned that these movies were being released.
It's a shame that they didn't do a better job, making these movies.
Does this mean you were disappointed in The Dark Knight? Because I thought it was laughable. Just as bad as Green Lantern.
Be careful when buying advanced movie tickets. A friend recently purchased advanced tickets online only to find out he wasn't able to get into the movie because they had oversold the seating.
I have a pair of "Batman" underwear. Since I have his, I assume he is going commando.
You're a little slow, aren't you? I was referring to tracie, not the movie. Mind your own business.
ONe Trick Pony? The second movie in the series holds the #2 spot in best opening weekend ever, and the first movie in the series did extremely well (well enough for a sequel). So, you're an idiot.
Loser. Get help.
First of all...its only entertainment...u don't go to batman movie for oscar nominated performances...u go to c stuff get blown up some action n great camera shots for a couple of hrs so lighten up...n yes if u've been watchin superhero movies since superman 1 n star wars its hard to b surprised or to even b wowed...so jus go to c what they can w the new technology...did I mention its only entertainmeny...?
First Batman Adam West will be there lol
Burt Ward wishes he could be.
Batman actor is same as last 2 but he gas said it is his final as Batman.
Man, I'd kill fo sum Kfc and malt licker rite now. BLACK POWER YOU CRACKAS!
yep, Ron is a white guy posing as black. I would like to apologize to everyone for ron, if you can find him on the street please smack him.
So who is playing batman this time and i think they should use halle berry as catwomen 2 play a villian not a hero
Reading these comments make me sad about the state of people's brains in America.
Why, ElKai0? Because the above comment indicates someone who is not obsessed with pop culture? I, for one, am relieved to see someone make a joke about the next Batman movies. The sun does not rise nor set on Chris Nolan and his ability to insult the intelligence of his audience. Nor does it rise or set on the fans who don't understand the difference between "cool/entertaining/flashy" and "quality/art/intelligent."
Marshalgirl said it right the first time. HOLY PRE SElLOut. Lol
Nice to see CNN commenters having smart, well thought out opinions and conversations.
Lick some taint sir.
I was in a mental hospital with a guy who thought he was batman. no joke
And who did you think you were?
Hey this looks good have you seen The Light in the Shadows its an independent black and white noir. You can watch it for free here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfFAiBVrWyU&context=C3521e65ADOEgsToPDskIBTjbDP7pPyM4QSBJTb5TQ
I wish I was in the movie. :-(
I hope this third and final one will be good as the first two films, rarely are trilogies that are all good, one after the other in order especially in comic book movies.
With Nolan and Bale leaving the world of the Dark Knight behind, is there anyone in Hollywood, who's willing to try a Superman/Batman movie – "World Finest Team" anytime soon ? Marvel got a super-team movie out, it's time that DC gets off their cinematic duffs and get a great script, skilled fine actors and a buttload of money to finance the film and make one great movie, I like to see this happen.
P.S. Gina Carano for Wonder Woman ! Who better to play the Amazon Princess of Themysceria ? And maybe, that guy from Seinfeld, who played David Puddy, I forget his real name....don't you think he'll make a great Captain Marvel ? AKA the world's mightest mortal, worthy of the Power of SHAZAM ?
Basically a Batman/Superman/Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel movie starring the big Four of DC Comics.
I can't wait!!! I expect this movie to be amazing, but I love Batman so I'm gonna love it no matter what. And all this racist crap is dumb! STFU and go be ignorant somewhere else! Also, I don't like Obama either and that doesn't make me racist (which I've been told). BATMAN <3!!!!
Holy pre sellout!!!!!
YO.......!!!You're the voice of America,the voice of change,hope and emancipation....Keep soaring high 'BARRACK OBAMA'-"GOD BLESS AMERICA";"GOD BLESS NIGERIA MY COUNTRY"
Where is the girl that like to swallow big black monkey wieners
She's jerking it to the Jay-Z threads, sir.
7-20-2012 can't wait!!!
I wish I can get to this, but Im stuck in the Blumpkin Galaxy.
It Obama's fault!
I'll wait to get this one on netflix. I've had my heart broken too many times (star wars 1-3, the last indiana jones, the last 2 die hard movies to manne a few) to spend my hard earned money on a franchise movie.
I just paid $150 for 2 front row tickets on stubhub. Crazy
Batman?!? Someone brought up racism with Batman!? Seriously? Didnt that stop being popular 20 years ago?...Batman...guysand girls just let it go. Oh and the movie will be good.
Personally, when it comes to movies with this much hype and anticipation (like the Phantom Menance – yeah, yeah, I know), I usually skip the whole midnight showing thing and opt to see it on a sunday or weekday morning. A lot less stress. Who would really want to willing subject themselves to the crowd pandemonium but the most extroverted die-hard fans?
What? Anne Hathaway the Catwoman? What happened to Halle Berry? She is still hot!!
This movie will be a letdown cause anne hathaway is catwoman! She's a good actress and all, but she will suck as the villain. She needs to go back to being a wife dumped by her gay cowboy husband. Not stand beside one of the biggest superhero icons in history. Just saying.
Prjudice is not prejudice to whom it makes ignorant and foolish.
Movie will be another mega hit for MASTER MIND NOLAN!!!
Man th only black heros are toms man, its racialist 2 keep us down, u white fools 2 dum 2 know it, like jj and uncle salty. Hey jj why don't u see why uncle be salty, u no what I mean btch. Obama rules over white fools like u all. He da king.
Ron you are an idiot. I am a black man. and I will not waste my vote on the worst President of my lifetime (50 yrs old).
You should get some more education and really say to yourself what has the hope & change done for me. Now get off the Obama bandwagon and talk about the Dark Knight, which should be a very entertaining movie.
Instead of worrying about our political/economic future. Too many people are obsessed with Illuminati-controlled entertainment. America and the world are headed to a communist one-world government, I hope you know – so enjoy your freedoms while you still have them. In the meantime, there are people like me fighting against Obamacare, The Patriot and NDA Acts, and SOPA.

Shut up black dude..obama is a loser and a failure...
There's a black dude That's a green lantern. Blade and falcon are black too. So much for "letting" there be a black hero.
There was a black Batman.
Black super hero – Leonard from (Leonard Part 6). HA! Trumped you all!
Well if black dudes would stop committing all the crimes then maybe we would let them play a hero. Probably not, but maybe
Why must you entertain Ron? I am black and didn't feel the need to agree wit his statement. Also, I didn't understand why you would even stooped to his level of ignorance with the comment you made. This post is about the dark knight, not racial issues in America....come on ppl.
Actually more whites commit violent crimes. Check the stats. Don't believe the hype man. The FBI's Univeral Crime Report will help to enlighten you a bit. That is only if you care about the truth. I dare you to.
I just realized that they allow children or totally immature adults place post on the CNN Blogs. Go figure! Liberals...got to love'em!
As opposed to the comments on neo-con sites and blogs, where you have adults acting like children. Ha!
Lol, you're just realizing this now?
I hope it flops.
The cartoon version has more believable actors.
Look man I don't even CARE anymore man, u white folks be so lame with the Barack putdowns. U no he will just suspend elections man he got the power.
You are an utter, and complete idiot.
i guess ron really is that stupid. RON go get an education, learn how to speak proper english and maybe whites will actually accept you.
No. If someone (regardless of race, religion, creed or color) does not know to speak proper Enlish, then they will never get my respect.
lol @ Enlish
Or maybe you should just get of the meth or crack, dude!
Goin to Sharon Tate's house tonight... anyone wanna come?...
Go ahead... we'll be watching
Yo what's up. Look this a putdown for blacks. Totally racialist. 4 sure all da crooks in the movie will be BLACK. The hero, Batman, well he be WHITE. U see? U see?
Do you know how to speak/write proper English? You sound like an idiot.
what are you saying?
no one is so stupid they actually talk like that right? If so, get off the internet and go to school dumb a$$.
Time wasted,money wasted
I'm betting when I get to the theater there will still be plenty of seats available. Over promotion of a film can work against sales in the long run. It can lead to disappointing reviews.
It can...but it can also work in their favor as well. You ever heard of Harry Potter or Twilight, huge box office hits that sold out before their premieres; huge promotional campaigns. I guess it all depends on how you look at things, glass half full or empty.
I have been to an amazing number of films over the years (far more than the average person) but never have I been turned away due to the film being sold out. Possibly the only good thing about Las Vegas.
It`s a MOVIE for crying out loud, not a live performance. What has happened to this country`s values. Next they will be scalping movie tickets.
These tickets will be scalped, too. Look what people did when the PS3 and Xbox 360 came out–some would buy 2 or 3 of them, keep one for themselves, and throw the remaining ones on eBay to earn a hefty profit from high bids.
You’re right! These people should not be paying $10-$12 per ticket to see it on opening night. Instead they should be spending hundreds on the worst seats in the house to see that pretentious gasbag, Bono, and his U2 cronies play. Or maybe they should be spending hundreds to go watch a bunch of over-payed grown men in tights grab each other and play around with a funny-shaped object during a football game? Maybe they should be worried about packing a cooler full of hog-swill beer so they can watch a bunch of rednecks drive in circles really, really fast. Clearly you’re the expert at what form of entertainment is worth spending money on.
It will be a very good movie. The cast is strong.
As for selling the tickets, so what I made a small fortune selling ps3's when they first came out. I bought 10 kept two sold other 8 for 3x what I paid and could have made more on each.
I really liked the first movie. Can't wait for this next one!
I like to swallow big black monkey wieners.
Thanks. You've just proven the point I've been trying to make in here for weeks. The only people that still use the word "Weiner?" ...14-year olds. Now go back to class and try to learn something other than Call of Duty controls. Loser.
Stop talking to yourself
Oh! LOOK! You posted a comment using my name!? Aren't you clever!? No one's EVER done that before...! *Yawn.* Go back to class, Loser.
Grilled cheese sandwiches!
It was my name before you kids were even born
Really...wiener and poop jokes? Seriously, you can't get past that? I know it's tough being in grade 6 and trying to come up with funny material, but try.
*Yawn.* One trick pony, Loser.
I hope the hype doesnt supercede the actual movie!
I just have the strangest feeling that this movie'll be a disappointment. Maybe it's the threequel problem.
Maybe he would be a more believable batman if he didnt get his &ss kicked by chinese soldiers
Peter Jackson did fine with his three. Who's to say Nolan can't pull off a brilliant trilogy? And he follows up with yet another DC hero...hint hint.
Maybe financially he did well with his trilogy, but Return of the King was a cheesy, way-too-long snorefest compared to his other two films. I'm not worried that this movie won't be successful, I'm worried that it won't be very good.
