New Moon Already Breaking Records

The vampire craze has yet to peak if the latest film installment in the Twilight series is any indication. Several thousand New Moon showtimes have already sold out in anticipation of its Friday release, according to Fandango, AMC, and MovieTickets.com, which say the film has broken advance ticket sales records set by the likes of Revenge of the Sith, Dark Knight, Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter. Today is all about the ladies, though, and they're not afraid to get their dork on. MovieTickets.com reports that 87 percent of its ticket buyers are women, while Fandango reports that ten percent of fans plan to dress up as film characters. Those lucky enough to score tickets to a Thursday night advance screening may be deaf this morning—Fandango reported that 51 percent of fans were prepared to scream as the lights went down. Eat your heart out, Frodo.
