“Even though the finale’s first part is more than two weeks away, fans
are already showing their eagerness to join the final journey on opening
weekend,” says Fandango Chief Operating Officer Rick Butler. “We’ve seen more sold-out showtimes for this film than we’ve seen for any other pre-release title this year.”

Compared to the other Harry Potter films, “Deathly Hallows: Part 1” has has had “[b]risk ticket sales outpacing the ticket sales of each previous HARRY POTTER adventure at the same point in those films’ sales cycles,” and compared to other movies out now “Deathly Hallows: Part 1” amounts to, “61% of Fandango’s daily ticket sales, single-handedly beating the ticket sales for all current films combined.”
