Fandango powers ‘Towers’ tix

January 7, 2003 at 12:15 pm by xoanon  - 

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” has sold more tickets through online vendor Fandango than any film in the service’s three-year history. Fandango, which is partnered with six big exhibition chains, sold nearly $6 million worth of tickets to “The Two Towers” screenings in the movie’s first five days, roughly 6% of the overall opening take. The film has continued to be a hot seller for the online vendor even through this past weekend, more than two weeks after its release, when it accounted for more than a third of Fandango ticket sales.

No. 2 on the company’s 2002 hit list was “Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones,” which sold more than $5.5 million worth of tickets. “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” was third with $4.5 million in tickets sold through the service.
