Los Angeles, CA (RPRN) 11/12/09 — New Moon opens at midnight one week from tonight, but the film has already outsold its predecessor, Twilight, in total advance ticket sales on Fandango, the nation's leading movie ticketing destination.

Currently, New Moon ranks as the #4 top advance ticket-seller in Fandango history, toppling Twilight which previously held the spot.

 The Top 5 Advance Ticket-Sellers on Fandango (as of November 12, 2009) are as follows


1. Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)


2. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)


3. The Dark Knight (2008)


4. New Moon (2009)


5. Twilight (2008)


According to a recent Fandango survey of more than 2,000 New Moon ticket-buyers, the first Twilight movie helped fuel the fan frenzy that has carried over to the other installments in the series:
