Have you seen The Dark Knight yet? According to this a hell of a lot of folks have,
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.
I want to see this so bad, I gotta convince the wifey for tonight. The reviews all giving The Dark Knight a thumbs up and even Rotten Tomatoes is giving this a 94%. I was pretty much sold when I saw the 6 minute trailer.
Real talk, I loved the first Batman with Jack Nicholson as Joker. We’ll see if Heath Ledger can live up to the Joker role.
