'Dark Knight Rises' Racks up $25 Million Before Opening

No one doubts “The Dark Knight Rises,” which opens at midnight tonight across the country, will be one of the year’s biggest hits. But $25 million in ticket sales before its first midnight screening?

Tickets to some of the first showings, at midnight on Thursday evening, sold out more than six months in advance. Seats for opening night are being offered for upwards of $175 on eBay (popcorn and soda not included), and as of Wednesday, some $25 million worth of advance tickets had been already sold.
