The highly anticipated ‘Hunger Games’ broke the record for most tickets purchased on the first day of pre-sales set by ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.’
“The Hunger Games is off to a fantastic start. Yesterday [Feb. 24], we saw the biggest first day advance ticket sales in our company’s nearly 12-year history – which is especially impressive for a March release and a non-sequel,” Fandango vice president and general manager Rick Butler said in a statement, Entertainment Weekly reports.
According to EW, the previous record was set by The Twilight Saga: Eclipse on May 14, 2010.
So Twihards and Tributes — will The Hunger Games be bigger than Twilight at the box office?
