Covering Cinema From All Across The African Diaspora

The Time Has Come...

Exactly 24 hours from now, you know where I'll be (insert hysterical Joker laughter here)! Give how quickly screenings have been selling out over the last 2 weeks, I was surprised I was able to get into one on opening day!

According to Deadline Hollywood Daily: ... close to 4,000 shows have been sold out! Even the number of locations in North America where the comic book caper will be playing -- 4,366 -- is an Industry record. 1,700 of the sell-outs are for showtimes between 12:01 AM and 8:00AM Friday. There are sold-out shows through the weekend from Washington D.C. to Puyallup, Washington, and in towns like Bozeman, Montana and Fitchburg, Wisconsin. 6:00AM shows are scheduled in big cities and small, from San Diego to Hazelwood, Missouri, and Tigard, Oregon, etc. Fandango COO Rick Butler says: “Friday is pacing to be our biggest ticket-selling day in company history. It’s very possible that we’ll break our hourly ticketing record by tomorrow morning.” Currently, Dark Knight represents 94% of ticket sales on, the nation’s leading movie ticketing destination.

It's madness!
