I cannot believe I am writing this…but tickets for James Cameron’s “Avatar” are already on sale on movietickets.com and Fandango’s website. Yes, a movie that doesn’t get released till December 18th already has tickets for sale! While I understand 20th Century Fox needing to make back some of the reported $300 million budget, this is pretty early to be selling tickets.
The fact is…I don’t know what I’m doing this weekend, let alone December 18th. But if “Avatar” is on your radar, I’d go buy tickets right now…especially for an IMAX 3D theater as those are going to sell out fast. Of course only a fraction of theaters are on sale right now, but I checked my area and tickets are available for the midnight show at the Universal Citywalk IMAX theater in Los Angeles. It’s going to sell out quick so buy tickets now. Think eBay.
