“The Dark Knight Rises” fans have less than a week until they can bum rush the box office. Movietickets.com will begins presales for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming blockbuster June 11, and you can bet those tickets will sell out quickly.

Anticipation is running high for the third and final film, which stars Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader, Anne Hathaway as Catwoman and Tom Hardy as Bane. Warner Bros. will open the film July 20.
