The Hunger Games has sold more advance tickets than any other non-sequel movie, Entertainment Weekly reports. According to data from Fandango, the film adaptation of the hit novel has sold out over 2,000 showtimes in advance of its premiere on Friday, and tickets for the movie currently account for 92 percent of the ticketing site's daily sales.

Despite the movie's outstanding performance with advance tickets, it has not cracked Fandango's top five advance sales list, which includes The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1.
