The Dark Knight Rises' Midnight Screenings Selling Out

by at . Comments

The film doesn’t debut until July 19 at midnight, but those first IMAX showings are already selling out for The Dark Knight Rises. That is hardly surprising given that The Dark Knight Rises trailer has broken The Avengers’ record with over 12.5 million views. But, it is astounding. This is the first almost sellout of a midnight showing this far in advance since James Cameron did it in 2009 with Avatar.

Dark Knight Rises Star Christian Bale

But, the midnight IMAX almost-sellout is still astounding. This is a showing of a movie that does not begin its first reel for another seven months!
