Fandango reported these numbers today:
“Hunger Games” has already hit the following Fandango milestones:

• Nearly 2,000 showtimes sold-out in advance on Fandango;
• The top ticket-seller of the year to date;
• The top-selling March release in company history;
• More mobile ticket sales than any other film this year;
• More advance tickets sold on Fandango than the first “Twilight” movie during its entire advance ticketing run. 
’The Hunger Games’ continues to amaze us with its astonishing pace,” says Fandango Executive Vice President and General Manager Rick Butler. “‘The extraordinarily strong advance ticket sales speak to the ease and convenience of Fandango, both on the Web and through our mobile apps, which guarantees fans seats for the films they want to see.”
