Fandango: Star Wars Has “Obliterated” Records

The long-awaited “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has blasted to the top of Fandango’s Fanticipation movie buzz indicator with a rare 100 out of 100 points.  As Fandango’s top advance ticket-seller of all time, “The Force Awakens” has obliterated records, outselling all previous titles in the company’s 15-year history at the same point in the Fandango sales cycle. Fanticipation scores (based on a 1 to 100-point scale) are calculated via an algorithm of Fandango’s advance ticket sales, website and mobile traffic, and social media engagement.




According to a survey of more than 1,000 “Star Wars” moviegoers on Fandango:

  • Among the new “Star Wars” characters, Rey (Daisy Ridley) is the one that moviegoers are most excited to see in “The Force Awakens.”
  • 90% are looking forward to J.J. Abrams’ vision of the “Star Wars” universe;
  • 86% say the film’s carefully-guarded story secrets have increased their interest;
  • 84% are particularly excited to see the new female leads in “The Force Awakens;”
  • 82% are even more excited to see “Force Awakens” because “Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi”’s Lawrence Kasdan co-wrote the screenplay.

The fans have spoken and they are clamoring for more Rey!
