‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Crushes Ticket Pre-Sale Records

It’s true. All of it. Star Wars: The Force Awakens has shattered previous ticket sale records which were set by The Hunger Games. According to Fandango, it didn’t just pass the previous record, it crushed it times eight. The force was so strong with these pre-sales, that it caused numerous sites to crash last night. Fandango released the following statement.  

This is an extraordinary time for the industry, which experienced unprecedented ticketing demand last night for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’. The enthusiasm for this year’s most anticipated movie is out of this world and we expect it to continue all the way to its debut on December 18.

Many theaters are already reporting sellouts of first day screenings of the film. Some box office analysts are already speculating that this film will set the opening weekend record, despite opening mid-December. I’d say it’s a safe bet that this couldbe the one to dethrone James Cameron from one of this top two spots at the all-time box office.
