We knew The Hunger Games would be big, but we didn't know it was going to be this HUGE!!

The popular movie ticket website Fandango is reporting that their first-day advance sales of The Hunger Games has eclipsed ticket sales of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

In fact, it's the company's biggest first-day advance sells EVER in its 12-year history.

Hundreds of showtimes are already sold out and the movie doesn't even come out until March 23.

A Fandango rep said:

"Yesterday we saw the biggest first day advance ticketing sales in our company’s nearly 12-year history – which is especially impressive for a March release and a non-sequel."

And he's absolutely right. As we all know, summer/holiday releases typically outdo other films in terms of ticket sells, ESPECIALLY if it's a sequel of a popular film.

We hate to say this (we really, really do), but we think Twilight may be old news…

    I don't buy this. All the theaters in my city are only having the midnight show on one screen - none of them are sold out. Breaking Dawn was shown on up to 6 screens at all the theaters at midnight - all sold out. But that's beside the point cause what I really don't understand is why you keep comparing Harry Potter, Twilight, and Hunger Games to each other. All three could not be more different from the others. It's like comparing Star Wars to Spiderman.

    Re: BBC – Sometime advances tickets price means nothing.. look at the last Harry Potter, he didn't have the best selling advanced shows but finally had the biggest opening day ever (91 millions) and the biggest opening week-end ever (170 millions) so I think we should wait and see… and Hunger Games is the first movie of the first book of a trilogy that's now EXTREMELY popular so it's normal that the have less midnight screening than the FOURTH twilight movie duh

    I love Hunger Games so I was totally one of the hundreds that bought a midnight screening ticket…but I think Fandango hit those numbers because movietickets.com weren't selling AMC tickets…

    First of all get your facts right!! Of Course Hunger Games will sell out the first week , that's because All the twihards are going to go see the movie the first chance they get so that they can see a preview or trailer of Breaking Dawn 2, so you're actually adding the hunger game fans plus the twilight fans!!!

    I hope this is true. While I enjoyed the Twilight books, the movies are horrible. I absolutely love the Hunger Games books, and I think the movie has a chance of being really good. At least they have decent actors. Also, I think they are being compared because they are both movies based popular young adult series books, not because they are anything alike storywise.

    please let not get ahead of our selves…..let's just say good marketing on Liongate/Summit by releasing BD2 trailer with the showing of the Hunger Games movie, of course your advance tickets purchase is going to be big!
