Dark Knight Ticket Sales Eight Times As Much As Spider-Man 3

WOW. Fandango is reporting that dozens of showtimes for The Dark Knight are already sold out for the midnight screenings on Thursday night/Friday morning, July 17th. That's right, even with a full three weeks before the film hits, screenings have begun to sell out. A few theaters have begun to add 3:00am showtimes on Friday morning to help meet the consumer demand.

Update: As of June 27, "Dark Knight" has sold eight times as many tickets on MovieTickets.com as "Spider-Man 3" at the same point in the sales cycle — 21 days from the film's official release. "Spider-Man 3" is the No. 10 film on MovieTickets.com's Top-10 Performing Films of All-Time.
