The Dark Knight Rises finally hits movie theatres midnight Friday July 20th. Seven years after Batman Begins, the anticipation of plot rumors, casting, and advertising will all lead to an epic end to the legendary Batman saga. The Dark Knight Rises is projected to surpass every fan’s expectation of a jaw-dropping action packed movie. Actors Anne Hathaway, Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Michael Caine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, and Morgan Freeman star in the saga’s trilogy. Is director Christopher Nolan capable of being nominated for another two Oscars and bring in more than $1 billion to wrap up the trilogy? For all you IMAX addicts, there has been at least an hour of footage shot in IMAX. Click here for Trailer
Tickets-The Knight isn’t the only one rising this week; the ticket prices have skyrocketed. If you’re a die-heart fan, you already know that midnight IMAX screenings sold out not weeks, but months ago. Now, people are trying to scalp tickets off Craigslist and eBay for way more than the average asking price. One eBay seller in Iowa is asking for $140 for one screening…hope it’s worth it! The majority of sellers are asking for $25-$40, but make sure to check out your local theater before spending too much. In some theatres, The Dark Knight Rises will be shown at 14 different times, not even 15 minutes after the premiere has ended.
