It’s celebration time Bat fans as tickets went on sale today for Christopher Nolan’s third and final Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises! To celebrate this glorious event, and special UK TV spot has been created to promote the fact you may now book your tickets, and just the ensure everyone knows this good news, the TV spot appeared in the half time break of England against France in the Euro earlier tonight.
However, there is a snag, and it would appear that the only tickets available to be booked are those for IMAX cinemas, so please do not go complaining to your local cinema if they do not have tickets available yet. There is no doubt the normal tickets will be on sale soon, but for now only a very select number of cinemas across the UK will be selling tickets.
As for the TV spot itself, it is nothing new and is simply a collection of some of the highlights if the numerous TV spots already released, but who cares!
