Re: The Dark Knight Megathread (USE THIS! Love, the mods)

I really need to see this thing in IMax myself.

And, to the several dozen parents who brought their 6 year-olds and younger to this afternoon's showing? SHAME on you.

I hope your children have nightmares for a month.

Re: The Dark Knight Megathread (USE THIS! Love, the mods)

I havent seen the movie and I do not feel a rush to see it even though I am a big fan of superheroes.

I am just stumped by the people that are willing to pay 50 or more dollars to see the movie. It makes no sense to me. What is the rush that you have to see it. On the news, some movie goer said that they would be willing to pay 150 dollars to see the movie and they expected it to be sold out for weeks. I think that is nonsense. There is no way that the movie is going to be sold out for weeks. If you want to see it that badly go see it during a week day.

I saw it at midnight on Thursday and the theater was packed. They sold out eight theaters and everyone got there an hour early. Heath Ledger owned that movie, and he deserves an Oscar. Otherwise, I enjoyed the movie and thought it was pretty good, but not four stars good. It's not worth all the hype and the fuss the critics are making over it. And the plot was better than Batman Begins.

Thursday's midnight showings here were sold out at 4 500+ person screens in a theater down the street, 2 500+ screens at another theater, 2 500+ screens at another, and one 300 screen at the theater I ended up seeing at -at it's second 200+ screen. I bought my ticket at around 10, got to the theater at 10:30 or so and there was a small handful of people there.

I went and saw this afternoon with my roomate who bought our tickets this afternoon for what turned out to be a sold-out 3:30p showing -very unusual for this theater.

Now, granted, we live in a very saturated theater market. There's scores of screens in reasonable driving distance of me. So getting a ticket isn't an issue for me. I can't see it being all that different in other places. If you want in you can get in without over-paying for the ticket.

I think that they might. My sister was going to take my niece and nephew earlier this evening (8 and 12 respectively) and I told her not to.

I'm hoping I wake up on Monday morning to hear that it squashed SpiderMan 3 like a bug.

I saw Batman and Batman Returns around that age, never had any nightmares. I was watching Batman Returns on some movie channel a few weeks ago and boy that movie was awful bloody and such.

Kids these days are FAR more sheltered and TDK is far darker than Batman '89 and Returns.

It's not about blood. It's about style and attitude.

DarkHorizon's reports that WB is projecting a $90-100 million opening weekend, while many Box Office tracking sites are saying that is much too modest, themselves predicting a $130+ million opening weekend.

I, for one, hope that they totally blow everyone away and make $200+ million in an opening 3 day.
Well, it wasn't $200 million, but they did blow everyone away! $155+ million. Warners estimated was off by one-third below, and the other tracking sources where about $15 million shy.

Minus marketing the movie paid for itself in three days. Not too shabby. And it should remain real strong in the BO. Mulder and Scully haven't a chance to de-throne TDK.

Wow. This is incredible. Even I didn't expect the film to do this well.

What an awesome time to be a Batman fan.

Re: The Dark Knight Megathread (USE THIS! Love, the mods)

Saw people come in all the obvious costumes: Jokers, Arkham prisoners, Batman, Riddler. But, someone at one of the showings surprised me. They came as Bruce Wayne. Not only did they have the suit and hair, but they came in Bruce's Lamborghini. That time I saw the movie, the theater was in the middle of no where.

My wife and I wanted to avoid crowds and lines as best as possible, so we saw a 10am showing on Saturday, and the theater was packed. I imagine the afternoon shows all sold out.

I think someone said something similar about three prostitutes and their mom dethroning Indy, yet they did. So, you never know.

However, you're probably right.
