Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1’s premiere isn’t for two weeks, yet it is already selling more tickets than any other movie on Fandango. Almost 500 shows have been sold out, and none of the other Harry Potter have ever sold this many tickets so early before. Fandango’s Chief Operating Officer Rick Butler has said, "… fans are already showing their eagerness to join the final journey on opening weekend. We’ve seen more sold-out showtimes for this film than we’ve seen for any other film this year, at the same point in the sale cycle."

The lesson of this story is two-fold: Harry Potter is well-loved. Not really surprising to any of us. The second lesson: if you want to go to the midnight or opening day showing, get your tickets now! Midnight showings are one of the best parts of being a movie fan, and to miss it on a huge film like this would be a disappointment.  If you stop to consider that this is only part one of the finale, then part two is going to bring some crazy ticket sales.  Hit the jump for more on the Harry Potter marketing machine.
