FB FOTR has broken the first record here in Italy. Yesterday it grossed 1.032.000 euro, beating the previous record set by Hannibal. It’s pretty safe to assume it’s going to be one of the highest grossing movies ever in Italy too.
Another record has been set at the Arcadia Multiplex, one of the finest movie theaters in Europe: they sold 17.900 tickets for Fotr only. All the theaters accepting advance bookings are sold out for the week-end, and it looks like this is going to happen again next week.
