Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Eclipsed by Katniss?
Sorry, Bella Swan, it looks like you just got your rear handed to you by Miss Katniss Everdeen. It’s true. Thanks to advance ticket sales, hundreds of showtimes for the upcoming March 23rd adaptation of The Hunger Games are already sold out!
Comingsoon.com confirmed that even with opening day about five weeks away, the first-day ticket sales on Wednesday, February 22 broke the previous first day advance ticket-seller record held by The Twilight Saga: Eclipse on Friday, May 14, 2010. That’s some serious money-making power.
Rick Butler, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Fandango called the Hunger Games movie phenomenon “off to a fantastic start.” He further related, “We saw the biggest first day advance ticketing sales in our company’s nearly 12-year history.” That’s a record folks! And what’s unusual is this is a March release and it isn’t a sequel. Theater owners are actually having to add showtimes to keep up with the demand for tickets.
I personally don’t like to see Twilight fans and Hunger Games fans at war. Both series are unique and have their own appeal. I’m just hoping Twilight fans will come over to the fire side, so to speak. Katniss will come to be known as the girl who was on fire. Fans of the books are certainly on fire, buying up tickets.
The story is described as young adult dystopian science fiction, but it is so approachable and delectable, let’s just call it a good old-fashioned against-all-odds adventure!
