"New Moon" Tops Pre-Ticket Sales

Five days before its US domestic release, "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" has become the top-selling pre-release title in online ticketing provider Fandango's ten-year history.

The film, which is currently taking in 86% of weekly ticket sales on Fandango, has beat out "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith," "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince", "The Dark Knight" and the first "Twilight" film in terms of pre-sales.

Thousands of Thursday night midnight showtimes for "New Moon" are already sold out across the country. The question now is what will the opening weekend be? The film is set to easily smash both the $35.9 million opening day and $69.6 million three-day opening weekend of the first film. By how much is the question.
