The Hunger Games Has Already Sold Out 2,000 Showtimes


Which is not surprising given all the positive buzz and the tireless efforts of its publicity machine, but it is noteworthy because as of Tuesday evening, Fandango said that it had already sold more advance tickets on its website for The Hunger Games than for any non-sequel ever. By Wednesday, the postapocalyptic saga will have sold out more than 2,000 showtimes, EW reports, and there's still time to knock one of the Twilight or Harry Potter installments from the top-five advance ticket sellers. It may be time for some moviegoers to call in that favor to a well-placed individual at the local cinema.
