According to Fandango, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” is already selling 65% of it’s daily ticket sales. Also, advance ticket sales for the new Potter movie are outpacing advance sales for “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” and the fifth Potter movie, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”, at the same point in those films’ sales cycles (eight days before release date). What that means is…the boy wizard is still magic at the box office.
“Harry continues to be ‘The Chosen One’, especially among movie fans,” says Rick Butler, Chief Operating Officer for Fandango. “The Half-Blood Prince is turning out to be one of our fastest-selling titles of the year, and has consistently been a top-seller ever since tickets went on sale on June 17.”
I’ve seen the new “Harry Potter” film and it’s fantastic. Definitely one of the best films in the series and something fans are going to love. It’s going to make a ton of money at the worldwide box office.
