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.

As angry as I was at WB for the delay, I have to say that if HBP is 1/2 as good as the reviews purport, I suppose it will have been worth the wait…

So glad I got my ticket already. Can’t wait! This is so great that it’s getting so much publicity. And you know, even though I was livid about it at first, I’m kinda happy Warner Bros pushed the date back, otherwise we’d only have DH to look forward to NEXT YEAR. And we wouldn’t have all the excitement right now. Ahhh, so excited!

Which is possible because I’m going to one midnight pre-showing, and the official midnight premiere. :D [squeeeeeeeeeee!!]
