Rogue One hasn’t been released yet that it’s breaking records! Variety is reporting that the movie recorded the second-highest first day of pre-sales in the US history! The first one being The Force Awakens last year.
The two biggest online tickets sellers in the US Fandango and MovieTickets.com reported that Rogue One was their biggest first day of pre-sales this year. And just like last year when the ticket pre-sales launched for this new Star Wars movie, the two sites were flooded with people buying their tickets to the point when Fandango had to create a virtual wait room, it crashed the internet as reported Deadline. Thus some people did it the old way and went directly to their cinema to buy the tickets as ABC reported on Twitter.
