The midnight screenings of "Batman Begins" were only "sparsely attended," according to initial news reports cited by Showbizdata. Those who attended, however, were enthusiastic about the movie. While interest is just as high for "Batman Begins" as it was for "Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith" with readers of Rotten Tomatoes, according to internal traffic numbers, the latest Batman movie probably won’t come near the $16M midnight opening achieved by "Revenge of the Sith," even though their Tomatometer are similar (82% at the time if this writing). Critics’ reactions seems to mirror the fans’ sentiments, with many of them saying that "Batman Begins" captures the essences of the brooding superhero and may be the best live-action Batman movie of the bunch.
