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.
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.
