Tickets for the 'IMAX Experience' went on sale five weeks ago, and it has already beaten the previous advance sale record of Avatar, which took £607,000 in sales from 47,000 tickets in 2009.

The Dark Knight Rises has already broken IMAX records for highest first day sales (24,754 tickets grossing £409,838) and highest first week sales (38,658 tickets grossing £634,013).

43 of the IMAX showings are sold out, including early screenings at 4.25am and 4.55am this weekend.

Dennis Laws of BFI IMAX said: "These figures prove that seeing The Dark Knight Rises in IMAX, to truly experience Christopher Nolan's incredible vision for the film, is an unmissable event this summer.

"People are even flying in from abroad especially to see the film at BFI IMAX. We want as many people as possible to be able to see it, so we're already adding extra shows to meet the demand."

The film is getting its European premiere in London's Leicester Square tonight (July 18).
