TDKR: AMC Adds More Midnight Screenings To Meet Demand

According to AMC's ticket sales, Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated final Bat flick may be on course to shattering the The Avengers' record!



Thanks to chicagotribune we have the following news update: While it's much too soon to tell weather The Dark Knight Rises is as big a blockbuster as Avatar or The Avengers, with the news that AMC, the second largest theater chain, will be adding more midnight showings to meet demand, it very easily could be squaring off the big guns at the box office. AMC is also increasing the screenings to "The Dark Knight Trilogy" marathon showing casing the complete trilogy. AMC is also adding some more afternoon showings in IMAX. AMC said they have already sold over 23,000 tickets for "The Dark Knight Trilogy" marathon, which may be headed to shatter the record of "The Ultimate Marvel Marathon".




The Dark Knight Rises is the latest and final sequel to the Nolan directed Batman series, its predecessors being Batman Begins and the The Dark Knight. The character first appearing in Detective Comics #27, Batman was created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, and has subsequently appeared in many comics, books, television, and movies. The current premise for the feature film The Dark Knight Rises is: Following the death of District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman assumes responsibility for Dent's crimes to protect Dent's reputation and is subsequently hunted by the Gotham City Police Department. Eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, Batman returns to Gotham, where he encounters the mysterious Selina Kyle and the villainous Bane, and must confront the latter's plans to destroy the city. With an all star cast: Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Marion Cotillard, The Dark Knight Rises opens in theaters July 20th!
