Star Wars the Force Awakens Ticket Sales Breaks Record

Star Wars the Force Awakens Ticket Sales Breaks Record
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has broken the record, surpassing "The Hunger Games", of selling the most tickets in its first day on sale, according to Fandango.  The site experienced a huge amount of traffic, with over seven times the amount of visitors than its peak level in less than 24 hours.

Fandango released a statement saying, "This is an extraordinary time for the industry, which experienced unprecedented ticketing demand last night for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". The enthusiasm for this year's most anticipated movie is out of this world and we expect it to continue all the way to its debut on Dec. 18."

Some theaters are already sold out, most of those being IMAX theaters.  

Not only did the upcoming "Star Wars" film sell more tickets in its first day than "The Hunger Games", but it outsold them by eight times the amount.
