Even before Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire flew into theaters, the film landed on MovieTickets.com best-selling list which tracks the company’s largest number of tickets sold in advance of a movie opening. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire opens in theaters nationwide today.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is also on track to rank in MovieTickets.com’s top five overall best-selling list of all time, a final compilation of most tickets sold for a single film. This list is tallied after a film has been in release for a significant time.

“Exhibitors and studios can breathe a sigh of relief that current releases are still breaking records. Momentum of online ticket sales serves as a key consumer indicator, tracking how popular a movie will be on opening weekend and through its lifespan. As evidenced by its high volume of advance ticket sales, Goblet is sure to be another blockbuster,” said Walt Borchers, vice president, sales & marketing, MovieTickets.com.
