The force has awakened, and it's so strong that we should probably test it for steroid use!

According to reports, Star Wars: The Force Awakens broke the all-time record for moving the most tickets on its first day of sale!

The upcoming sci-fi adventure obliterated the benchmark set by the previous record holder, the first Hunger Games movie!

In fact, The Force Awakens outsold the Jennifer Lawrence led film EIGHT times over!

Fandango's website spiked to seven times more than its peak level in less than 24 hours, which caused the online ticket site — as well as MovieTickets.com — to crash for many users!

Fandango released a statement praising the intergalactic anticipation of the J.J. Abrams directed flick:

"This is an extraordinary time for the industry, which experienced unprecedented ticketing demand last night for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The enthusiasm for this year's most anticipated movie is out of this world and we expect it to continue all the way to its debut on Dec. 18."

Even though theaters are adding showtimes to keep up with the high demand, there are already sellouts — specifically in Imax screenings — so we recommend getting your tickets ASAP!
