Batman Geeks and Batman The Dark Knight

For all the Batman geeks out there, how many will stand in line for the midnight showing of Batman: The Dark Knight? I’m sure most theaters will sell out. Here is a bit about the movie..

Batman raises the stakes in his war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to dismantle the remaining criminal organizations that plague the city streets. The partnership proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal mastermind known to the terrified citizens of Gotham as The Joker.

As most of you may know The Joker played by Heath Ledger killed himself. This was a sad day in my book as I always liked his acting and believe he will be the main reason The Dark Knight succeeds.

Now I hear that Warner Bros has done something incredible. Despite the fact that we are in mid-July, I read that The Dark Knight will open on over 9,200 screens, an all-time record for the studio. This is no small feat given that mega-hits Hancock (Sony) and Pixar’s Wall-e (Disney) are doing huge business and both Mamma Mia (Universal) and Space Chimps (Fox) open wide this weekend. The Dark Knight (Warner Bros) arrives in theatres Thursday at midnight, and one of the major concerns has been the availability of screens at this point in the summer. I am making a distinction here between the number of locations and the number of screens. Sources at competing studios tell me that the long-awaited Batman sequel from Christopher Nolan has a real shot at breaking the all-time record for most playdates, surpassing the 4,362 locations that opened last May’s Pirates of the Caribbean

So Get there early Batman geeks as The Dark Knight is going to be big. Our 20 Movie theater plex is showing it on all screens. This is just crazy money they will be making. And if you think this is bad you should see the rush on Batman collectibles right now. I was at and couldn’t believe what some of the prices were up too. But I guess you will get that from just about any good superhero movie. Well see you all at the midnight showing of Batman: The Dark Knight.
