Transformers Sequel Becomes A Top 25 Pre-seller
The Transformers sequel has become a surefire success at the box office a day before the film is released in the U.S. - it's already among the top 25 pre-sellers of all time.
Top cinema booking site MovieTickets.com reports more than 600 performances of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen have already sold out, including 274 midnight showings.
The film, starring Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox, currently accounts for 93 per cent of ticket sales at the website, and has bumped the original 2007 Transformers from the top 25 list.
MovieTickets.com executive vice president Joel Cohen tells WENN, "So much for being robots in disguise Transformers 2 is sure to be one of our highest grossing and most visible openers in 2009."
Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King top the list of pre-sellers, ahead of The Dark Knight, Twilight and Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert.
All the Harry Potter and Lord of The Rings films make the top 25 list, as do the two Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, Spider-Man 3 and Hight School Musical 3: Senior Year.
