More records have been broken by the Star Wars franchise and there is no sign of the numbers slowing down anytime soon. The Star Wars trilogy continues with The Force Awakens, breaking presale records everywhere. Get ready for more records to be shattered when the movie actually becomes available in theatres.
‘Star Wars The Force Awakens’ already sold more than $6.5 million in presales.
“The only words to describe the first day of IMAX worldwide advance ticket sales for Star Wars The Force Awakens are ‘record-shattering’,” said Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment.
To put this in perspective, the previous single-day presale record was less than $1 million dollars. “The fan reaction to the latest trailer and demand for this film in IMAX is unprecedented,” Foster added.
Are you as excited as we are about the release? Star Wars The Force Awakens will open in theaters December 18, 2015.
