Star Wars: The Force Awakens Breaks Ticket Websites, AMC Exclusive Poster

At about the same time as the final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released, ticket pre-sales started and the results are very pleasing the theaters. That is after they recovered from their ticket sale sites crashing for the initial volume. The first day results includes a record $6.5 million in IMAX ticket pre-sales. The closest before this around $1 million for Hunger Games and The Avengers. AMC is reporting they have sold out 1000 shows nationwide and have chosen several theaters to remain open 24 hours on Friday. Speaking of AMC, the pic with this post is the AMC exclusive IMAX poster created by artist Dam Mumford that will be given away for "Star Wars Sundays". Anyone who purchases a ticket on Sunday from December 20 to January 10 will get one. I guess the goal is to good Sunday ticket sales and repeat buyers since Sunday is normally one of slower days of the week for movie ticket sales.
