Star Wars: #TheForceAwakens Breaks @IMAX Records

Numbers continue to roll in for the record-breaking advance ticket sales for the phenomenon that is Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Presales for the Disney and Lucasfilm project broke every IMAX record, generating more than $6.5 million in domestic ticket sales from moviegoers purchasing tickets to see the film which will open on approximately 390 IMAX screens in North America. By comparison, Imax has never previously registered more than $1 million in pre-sales on a single day. In most locations, Imax theaters were selling tickets for the first four days of the movie's run, ensuring that many more seats are yet to become available.

“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. “We’re seeing sell-outs across the board - from Hollywood to London, to Sparks, Nevada, and everywhere in between."

He adds: "The fan reaction to the latest trailer and demand for this film in IMAX is unprecedented and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this phenomenon and share it with our partners at Disney, Lucasfilm, J.J. Abrams and the entire filmmaking team.”

When tickets went on sale Monday after the trailer debuted during Monday Night Football, demand was so high that several sites, including IMAX, Fandango and Movietickets.com, suffered outages under the pressure.

Still, Fandango has already confirmed a new record in pre-sales, selling eight times as many tickets as it did on the first day of sales for the previous record holder, the first Hunger Games film. AMC also has reported sales for The Force Awakens beat the previous record holder by more than 10 fold (IMAX ticket sales accounted for approximately 38 percent of AMC’s ticket sales gross), and the theater chain sold out more than 1,000 shows nationwide.

Force Awakens also has set a new record for MovieTickets.com, with Monday-night sales coming in three times higher than at any point in the company's 15-year history. And sales for the movie are already four times greater than advance sales for the last title in the franchise, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, during the same time period. Overall, tickets for Abrams' film represents 95 percent of all tickets sold on MovieTickets.com

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
