Hunger Games All Ready Pulling In Big Bucks

Hunger Games All Ready Pulling In Big Bucks

Advance Ticket Sales Big For Hunger Games

 The Hunger Games doesn’t open until tomorrow – Friday, March 23, 2012 – but it’s already pulling in big bucks and will probably easily grab the number one box office spot for its debut weekend. The new sci-fi flick has an estimated advance tickets sales of more than $15 million for screens at AMC Entertainment, Regal Entertainment and Cinemark theaters.

In addition to those movie houses, Fandango reports The Hunger Games is the company’s top-selling franchise opener of all time with more than 2,000 show times already sold-out!

That makes this flick Fandango’s top ticket-seller for the year to date.

Breaking Records All The Way

Aside from raking in big bucks already and breaking Fandango sold-out shows, The Hunger Games also broke into Fandango’s ranking of the top five all-time advance ticket sellers, surpassing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse settling into the current number four spot on the list. But remember, we still have today – Thursday – to go through too!

Hollywood Dot Com Box Office President Paul Dergarabedian expects the film to have a huge opening weekend. Dergarabedian believes for it’s debut weekend The Hunger Games could grab the number one spot topping the $145 million dollar mark for ticket sales. That would put the movie at the top of the list for best opening weekends ever.

What will happen during the weekend box office? Time will tell! I do plan to screen this movie but I will avoid the midnight showing of this marathon length movie clocking in at almost two and a half hours.

Yours in movie news!
