"The Dark Knight Rises" doesn't open until July 20, but that isn't preventing movie theaters from already putting tickets up for sale -- and it's certainly not preventing movie fans from buying those tickets, as SlashFilm is reporting that some midnight screenings of the upcoming superhero blockbuster are already sold out more than half a year in advance.
We've heard of Christmas in July, but this is the first time we've heard of buying July movie tickets for Christmas.
Of course, if there's any movie that would sell out theaters months in advance, it would be "The Dark Knight Rises." You may recall, after all, that the last entry in the franchise, 2008's "The Dark Knight," was at the time the second highest grossing film of all time.
