THE HUNGER GAMES Film Breaks Online Ticket Sales Records!!!
"If early ticket sales mean anything, "The Hunger Games" is going to be a blockbuster.
Lions Gate's upcoming adaptation of the best-selling book series has broken Fandango.com's record for sales on the first day a film's tickets become available. The previous record was for the 2010 release of "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse."
The online movie ticket retailer said Thursday, a day after the tickets went on sale, that it had already sold out "hundreds" of showtimes for the movie's opening weekend, which starts March 23. Many of the tickets sold are for midnight showtimes March 22, evidence that fans are building up a "Twilight"-style mania to see the film as early as possible.
"The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" went on to sell $300 million in tickets domestically. However, some movies, like January's "The Devil Inside," generate red-hot early ticket sales but quickly fall off after their first weekend in theaters."
This is great news!!
I'm predicting that the Hunger Games film will make about 500 million dollars world wide!!
I will def be seeing it at midnight!
