The Hunger Games Advanced Ticket Sales: A New Record!

by at . Comments

Sit down, The Twilight Saga. Take a backseat, Harry Potter. There's a new, early box office champion in Hollywood!

According to Fandango, The Hunger Games has set a new mark for first-day advance ticket sales, as anxious Katniss Everdeen fans lit up the Internet on February 22 in anticipation of this blockbuster and purchased more tickets ahead of the film's opening than the previous record holder, Eclipse.

Said Fandango Executive Vice President and General Manager, Rick Butler:

"The Hunger Games is off to a fantastic start. We saw the biggest first day advance ticketing sales in our company’s nearly 12-year history – which is especially impressive for a March release and a non-sequel.”

NOTE: Do you want to attend the March 12 Los Angeles premiere of The Hunger Games? It's not too late to enter that contest at Movie Fanatic!

Okay, i absolutely LOVE the hunger games (i read the series 4 times now and it still never gets old!), but i do NOT think that it'll ever beat Harry Potter or BE the next Harry Potter. Harry Potter went on for a decade. I grew up with Harry Potter, and was there waiting to buy Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at Barnes at Nobles...Or Borders...I feel like I grew up with Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Harry Potter is something that...will NEVER be beat. But u know what? I'm still really excited to see the hunger games! The trailer looks really good and surprised that they got the little details. Usually director ignore those. But Suzanne was also the script writer and part of the director thing. It's gonna be sooooo EPIC!!


this was a great book! I really wnted the last book to be a little different i think she could have def made a 4th and not jam so much into the last book. But im really looking forward to this movie!
