Fifty Shades of Grey Tops Early Ticket Sales

Even though it doesn’t open until Friday, the upcoming “Fifty Shades of Grey” film has joined the list of Fandango’s top five advance ticket-sellers in the company’s fifteen-year history.

At the same point in their sales cycles (two days before release), the film is coming fourth behind only “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” and “The Hunger Games”.

The film is also on track to be the top seller among all films released during Valentine’s Day, the top February pre-seller and the biggest R-rated ticket-seller in the company’s history.

There is already reportedly hundreds of sold-out showtimes across the country.
