Internet movie ticket retailer Fandango sent us a press release that had a few eye opening statistics, including noting that now over 1,000 screenings of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince due to open tomorrow at midnight have now sold out. “Harry is tracking to match last year’s juggernaut, The Dark Knight, in
advance ticket sales,” says Rick Butler, Chief Operating Officer of
Fandango. “Showtimes are selling out at a very fast pace, and it’s
clear that the film’s wider blockbuster appeal, solid word-of-mouth and
positive Internet buzz on Half-Blood Prince are helping fuel the
demand.” The piece also points out that Half-Blood Prince is “one of the fastest-selling titles in Fandango’s nine year history, on
track to replace Twilight as the company’s third top-selling advance
ticketer (following Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and
The Dark Knight, occupying the #1 and #2 spots, respectively).”
