Movie-tickets.com has announced today that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has become one of the biggest advance ticket sellers ever. In a release, the website says that HBP "has already sold out over 500 performances worldwide, including over 300 midnight showings in the U.S. alone. It currently accounts for over 60 percent of ticket sales at MovieTickets.com and these numbers are expected to rise dramatically as the July 15 release date approaches."

Earlier Reuters was reporting that the film is predicted to generate huge sums of money, with " box office experts see little reason to doubt that the sixth installment will fall within the $800 million to $1 billion range, a huge amount for a single film. "This is just a remarkable franchise that has consistently drawn blockbuster numbers each time out, and it is hard to imagine this picture not continuing that trend," said Brandon Gray, president of tracking firm Box Office Mojo."

Tickets and Midnight screenings do remain available world wide for the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, due out formally here in the US on July 15.

I hope its not sold out in my town. Its not a real shock that that many places are sold out. HBP is highly anticipated.

I was planning on getting my tickets yesterday, but I thought, “oh it can wait”, but after I read this, I totally ordered them already. Woo-hoo! And just yesterday, one of the 60-year old ladies that I work with said, “have you seen the new harry potter trailer?! It looks Good!” I agreed 100%.

That’s pretty darn impressive! I know I’ve had my tickets for a long time!! The theater in my town has added two more midnight showings to the schedule because it’s been selling out so fast.

I bought mine 2 weeks ago, and I guess my screening just sold out recently. This happened for OotP too, and they opened up another screen.
