#Divergent Tops Twilight In First Day Ticket Sales

The Wrap reported today that first day Divergent tickets sales topped Twilight’s sales. This is huge for our continuously growing fandom!

Here’s part of what the article had to say:

Tuesday’s first-day ticket sales for “Divergent,” the upcoming young adult sci-fi adventure film, outpaced those of the first “Twilight” movie, online broker Fandango reported Wednesday.
Even though the action-adventure film doesn’t open until March 21, it sold nearly half of the site’s tickets for the entire day, outselling the next biggest seller by nearly five to one, Fandango said.
Early tracking on “Divergent,” which is based on Veronica Roth’s bestselling novels and stars Shailene Woodley and Theo James, has it opening in the same range as “Twilight,” another book-based young adult film that became a blockbuster franchise for Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment. They’ve already scheduled sequels for “Divergent” in March of 2015 and 2016.
“‘Divergent’ is off to a fantastic start,” said Dave Karger, chief correspondent for Fandango. “Its first-day ticket sales are showing all the signs of a blockbuster in the making. Veronica Roth’s gripping story combined with effective marketing have resulted in a movie with strong want-to-see sentiment among its core audience.”
