According to Variety, Fandango is reporting the new 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' is already breaking records everywhere. Its current pre-sale ticket numbers are up to 8 times higher than the previous record which was held by the first 'Hunger Games' film back in 2012. There are already sellouts, particularly in Imax screenings, and to meet the demand, movie theaters are continually adding show times, the online ticketer reports.
Fandango said in a statement. “The enthusiasm for this year’s most anticipated movie is out of this world and we expect it to continue all the way to its debut on Dec. 18.”
