Entertainment Weekly has launched its own section for “The Hunger Games” where visitors can find the latest and greatest news on the series (both film and print.) Though this may be a bit of old news for some, “The Hunger Games” has already ousted the “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” in advanced ticket sales! Take that Twi-hards!
According to a report from Fandango.com, the February 22nd release of advanced tickets for “The Hunger Games” accounted for over 80% of their daily revenue. Rick Butler, Executive VP and General Manager of Fandango stated on February 23rd:
“Yesterday 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.” via BoxOffice.com
Since this statement, E! Online has announced that a “Catching Fire” script has been presented to Suzanne Collins with a temporary release date of November 2013, so fans of the trilogy can rest peacefully. In general, this is fantastic news for “The Hunger Games” and mookologists around the globe!
