'Dark Knight' fans unite

Okay, I'll admit that driving to Tampa to pick up the newest DVD release of Batman's "The Dark Knight" is extreme, but next Monday night one Blockbuster store there is making it worth the while for fanatics of the film.

While Blockbuster stores throughout the Tampa area (we haven't heard anything about the Bradenton area yet) are staying open late in anticipation of being swamped by costumers, the store on 614 S. Howard Avenue has plans of being party central for the event. There will be costume contests, games, prizes and giveaways at the location. Plus, a few local radio stations will be on site.

According to Blockbuster, "The Dark Knight," which stars the late Heath Ledger as the Joker, is the highest grossing movie of 2008 worldwide.

So if you're up for the drive, don't miss this free event. The fun begins at 8 p.m. Monday and lasts until 1 a.m. Tuesday. Let us know if you know of any local Blockbusters in the Bradenton area having any "Dark Knight" related events so we can post it on the blog.
