For all of you Bat fans curious to know (and here's hoping you got your tickets already if you're planning to see it tonight), below are some of the stats we're seeing...
*TDK will debut with nearly 3,000 midnight performances nationwide
*So far, hundreds of showtimes are already sold out throughout the weekend
*On Fandango, TDK is taking in more than 90% of weekly ticket sales
*According to our poll, 38% of DK fans plan to take off a few hours or the entire day off tomorrow
To which we say, why not? This is one of the rare cases where the movie, IMHO, lives up to the hype. Some may quibble about the last few minutes, or the whole "oppresive" atmosphere, but hey, that's why it's called The Dark Knight. Everyone else, which will be nearly everyone, will be blown away by Heath Ledger's unforgettable performance, the A-list acting down the line, the unbelievable action sequences (thankfully most rendered without CGI), and the truly epic ambitions of Nolan's, I'll call it, "masterpiece." See it in IMAX if you can. But trust me, see it.
What did you think? If you've seen TDK already, what's your opinion? Agree with me that it's a classic, or think it's overhyped?
