1. The Top Story – ‘New Moon’ Tickets Are Selling Out Already
The Twilight Saga: New Moon
Want to be in the audience of the very first midnight screenings of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon“? You may have already missed your chance.
Advance tickets for the much-anticipated sequel went on sale a week ago, and shows are already selling out. Even the websites where early tickets can be purchased are getting surprised by the rush of sales. Joel Cohen, Executive Vice President of MovieTickets.com said, “We expected ‘New Moon’ to be hugely popular when tickets went on sale… but seeing sellouts nine weeks prior to its release is unheard of.” According to their data, 26% of sales at MovieTickets.com were for “New Moon,” with 17 shows already sold out completely. Fandango.com also reported that “New Moon” accounted for a higher percentage of ticket sales than any movie that opened last Friday.
Currently, the first screening available is at 12:01am on Thursday, November 19th, but with demand already so high the studio could potentially add earlier showtimes. While “New Moon” may be the most popular early seller today, tickets are also available for another movie that’s even farther away. “Avatar,” James Cameron’s long-awaited sci-fi epic, is already selling seats for IMAX 3D showings on December 17th, a full twelve weeks from now.
