We really don’t mean for today to become a Twilight clusterf*uck, but New Moon is everywhere. We’ve just discovered that the film has broken Fandango’s record for the most presale tickers ever. According to ComingSoon, New Moon has managed to beat the likes of The Dark Knight, Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince to take the advance ticket crown.
New Moon will officially hit theaters this Friday, on November 20th but fans aren’t taking any chances with getting a seat for opening night. The film’s ticket holders are currently taking up 86% of Fandangos weekly ticket sales. Thousands of screenings are already sold out for Thursday’s midnight showing across the country with no signs of letting up. With such an ample money making opportunity on their hands, theater owners are more than willing to meet the demand by adding more tickets and screenings as they sell out.
Tickets went on sale for the film back in August and since then the film has continuously found itself among the top five weekly sellers on the site.
The Top 5 Advance Ticket-Sellers on Fandango (as of November 15, 2009) are now as follows:
1. The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)
2. Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith (2005)
3. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)
4. The Dark Knight (2008)
5. Twilight (2008)
Something about this ranking seems so wrong. New Moon has surpassed Batman, Harry Potter, and Darth Vader? These Twihards are no joke.
