Less than 24 hours before The Hunger Games hits the theatres and the movie is on it's way to breaking box-office records with already selling $15 million in advance ticket sales. THR is reporting that one movie exhibitor thinks that the midnight showing alone could rake in about $20 million.
Fandango is reporting that presells of the movie have risen to the number four slot in all-time highs overtaking The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. That's pretty significant if you think about it given the popularity of those franchises.
From a weekend perspective, it is expected that THG will exceed the $116 million mark. Later this morning Lionsgate will release their estimate. After the midnight viewing of the movie, it will open in 4,137 theatres come Friday.
Will you be seeing the movie this weekend? Did you read the books?
