The Dark Knight – Early Numbers
I have not seen this movie, but I am going to soon. Did you know that 20 minutes of the movie was shot in IMAX camera format? To really appreciate the film, go to IMAX and see it how its meant to be shown.
Early numbers say on average 10 tickets per second are being sold. Check out this excerpt below from huffingtonpost:
“Media By Numbers, a tracking firm, said the Warner Bros. film, directed by Christopher Nolan, set a box office record for a midnight debut, bringing in $18.5 million Friday from midnight screenings in 3,040 theaters _ many of them open 24 hours. That bested the 2005 performance of “Star Wars Episode III: The Revenge of the Sith,” which took in $16.9 million at its debut. “The Dark Knight” figure didn’t include any of its 3 a.m. or 6 a.m. showings.”
