Got your Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire opening night movie tickets yet? If not, you might be out of luck as online movie ticket purveyor Fandango said today they are seeing a huge run on advanced ticket sales as the movie’s Nov. 18 release date draws near.
This run, which the company said is their fastest selling Potter installment to date, accounts for the majority of their weekly ticket sales two full weeks ahead of the movie coming out. It is rivaled however by the last Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which broke Fandango’s hourly, daily and weekly ticket sales.
“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has ranked among Fandango’s top selling movies since tickets first became available,” says Fandango President and CEO, Art Levitt, in a statement. “The previous Potter films were amazingly successful and we expect Goblet to be another box office behemoth. We’re anticipating huge crowds, as fans flock to Fandango to buy tickets in advance to avoid facing ‘sold out’ signs at the theaters.”
