Dark Scalpers Also Rise

With most tickets for midnight IMAX screenings of The Dark Knight Rises already sold out, eBay and Craigslist scalpers and professional ticket resellers are doing a land-office business, published reports said on Wednesday. ABC News this morning (Thursday) noted that one eBay seller in Los Angeles is asking $125 per ticket, while another in that city is offering two tickets for $300. Another ticket seller in Council Bluffs, Iowa is asking $140. So far no one is taking those sellers up on their outlandish offers. Most ticket resellers, are actually asking $35-40 for them. Deadline.com's Nikki Finke said on Thursday that ticket presales for the movie had already grown to $25 million and accounted for 80-85 percent of all tickets purchased online.
