It seems that anticipation is high for the November release of "Breaking Dawn -- Part 2." Fans are already nabbing up tickets for the final "Twilight " film with enthusiasm, as first-day advanced ticket sales beat those for "Breaking Dawn -- Part 1."
Tickets went on sale Monday (October 1), and as of late Tuesday, the film had already grossed $1.17 million in presales, E! News reports. That's up 87 percent in sales from 2011's $626,000 for "Breaking Dawn -- Part 1." It's further reported that a lot of those sales are tied to those purchasing tickets to "The Twilight Saga" marathon, which allows fans to screen all the flicks before the final one opens on November 16.
Earlier this year, the "Hunger Games" made similar headlines for selling out showings of the film ahead of its May 23 release date. Noted at the time was the fact that "Eclipse" broke the first-day advance-sales record back on May 14, 2010.
"Breaking Dawn -- Part 2" will kick off its official promo tour on October 6, with stops slated right through opening day. The cast, including Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and additional cast members will make promotional stops around the world including Australia, Brazil, Denmark, England, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Norway, Scotland, Spain and South Africa. The film will premiere in Los Angeles on November 12 at the Nokia Theater.
The stars are however already out promoting the film, and have opened up to MTV News about the bonus scene screening during the credits of the Bill Condon-directed flick. "If it's what I think it is, it's really awesome. It was a surprise moment on set that was pretty incredible," Nikki Reed told MTV News, teasing the all-cast dance number previously mentioned by her co-stars. "That day, there were about 150 of us, and we all came together and surprised Bill, so I hope it's that thing," Reed said. "It took a couple of practice runs [for us to learn it], and we had one drill sergeant who was in charge of gathering everyone. I got really into it. I was so into it that I wanted to be in the front row."
