Fandango Sold 17 “Hunger Games” Tickets Per Second At Peak Periods On Opening Day

Lionsgate

The company says the film claimed its single day sales record and mobile sales record, as well as its highest share of a movie’s opening weekend.

Fandango sold 22% of opening weekend tickets for The Hunger Games, which the company said marks the largest share of sales for any movie opening in the company’s history. The wildly anticipated film earned an estimated $155 million this weekend in the domestic box office.

Fandango, the NBC Universal subsidiary that sells movie tickets online and via phone, also reported that during the weekend’s peak ticket-selling periods, it was selling 17 Hunger Games tickets per second, leading to the company’s top-selling mobile weekend and top-selling single day (March 23) for a movie.

Rounding out Fandango’s list of top five shares of opening weekends, following Hunger Games, are Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 (19%), The Twilight Saga: New Moon (18%), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 (17%), and Sex and the City (16%). 

According to a Fandango online survey of moviegoers, 62% of Hunger Games fans plan to see the movie more than once in the theater. As of Sunday morning at 9 a.m. PT, the film still accounts for 90% of all daily tickets sold on Fandango.

In related news, last week Fandango and Yahoo! announced an agreement making Fandango the online and mobile movie ticketer for Yahoo! Movies.

personaly I think the movie didn't do the book justice... was actually kinda dissapointed

Still I'll give the movie a 6/10



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

I haven't read the book, but am now considering doing so after the movies. I found it really enjoyable and very well shot and acted, and just an all round very good film

What I don't get is why it is just SO popular, it is a very good movie, but not the best I have ever seen or anything, just a very good film, not quite enough to justify being one of the best starting movies ever at the box office

Short of making the film 180+ minutes long, I don't see what else they could have done with the movie to make it better reflect the source material.

“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.

Just watched it and quite liked it.

They did just about as good a job with the source material as they could. Jennifer Lawrence is fucking awesome. The cinematography was beautiful. There were shortcomings in the movie but given the constraints of adapting a book to film, I give it a big thumbs up.


In that case I must go see it. I usually agree with what you say. Also...I liked your old avatar.

I liked that last avatar but it felt weird going too long without a proper Rocketpig avatar so I drew this last week.
