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.
"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…
