Are You Going To Harry Potter At Midnight?
Are you planning to stand in line at midnight to be the first to see the new Harry Potter movie? Andy and I were checking the on-line demand for tickets to the Celebration Cinemas in town and found nearly all the tickets between midnight and 1am are already sold out.
Fandango.com says the film is accounting for 91-percent of the website's daily sales, which is a 20-percent increase from last week. More than five-thousand showings have sold out in advance of the film's opening on Friday. In addition, the final installment in the "Harry Potter" film franchise has surpassed "The Hangover Part 2" to become the site's biggest-seller of the year. Number three on the list is "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," followed by "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and "Bridesmaids." "Deathly Hallows" is taking the number two spot on Fandango.com's "All-Time Pre-Sellers" list, behind 2009's "The Twilight Saga: New Moon." "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" is third on the "All-Time" list, while "Deathly Hallows - Part 1" is in fourth place. "Star Wars: Episode 3 - Revenge of the Sith" completes the top five.
