It’s All Part of the Plan…

The Dark Knight premiered in over 4 thousand theaters first thing this morning at 12:01 all across America, and the caped crusader, along with his laughing arch-nemesis, have broken some records. Previous record holder for highest gross on midnight showings, Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, has been beaten by The Dark Knight, which accumulated more than $18.5 million dollars at midnight showings, not even including showings past midnight at 3 or 6 a.m.. I know that my town’s local theater had to use three different theaters due to sell-outs, even opening up theaters for other movies for The Dark Knight. Warner Bros. associates are expecting $130-$160 million for its opening weekend.
