Has anyone been able to buy tickets past 11/04, better yet 10/28?

Post by H'aime on Sun Sep 27, 2009 10:09 pm

It seems that whoever's promoting the movie is in a rush to get everyone to see it within the first 48 hours. There will be simultaneous pre-screenings worldwide on Oct, 27, even in small towns, not just 15 big cities. I bought my tickets for 12am on Oct. 27, but I haven't heard of anyone who has been able to buy tickets for screenings past 11/04 (and that person could be lying)? Is there anyone who has been able to buy tickets for late screenings?

I'm in USA/Virginia. My listings ran 10/28 - 11/5. I chose 10/28 and 10/31. I'm assuming that people could purchase for a showing within their two week period. Hopefully all goes smoothly for those who want to purchase their tickets.

I live in a small town in Denmark and it seems like the interest in the movie is limited. Only 10 tickets are sold for the 28th at 6pm and 4 tickets for the 28th at 8:30pm... Strange

Someone else in Germany (I think) mentioned slow ticket sales. I find that odd. I just knew that ticket sales worldwide would be fast and sellout quickly. I haven't heard any totals for the weekend box office results yet.

I have a ticket for 10/28 at 11AM, first show after the midnight show and they told me that they still have plenty of seats available for that time slot. I find this strange since it is the first day -- I thought that these tickets would be selling like hotcakes.

Odd indeed!

If ticket prices had been inflated, I would expect slow sales.

I was very surprised that ticket pricees remained the same. For me $7.50 + $1.00 (online fee) so I decided to get tickets for a 2nd night 10/31.

I have not seen the trailer outside of the MTV VMAs premier. I was listening to my car radio last week and heard it once.

I have my ticket for 11/2 - this will be my 5 days holiday event Smile - just three tickets sold for this show - but the place I wanted to have was already sold (for the next day, too - perhaps our three die hard fans in Koblenz have the tickets for each evening *g*)...

In our kino no big run - so if someone needs a tickst for last minute, Kinopolis Koblenz is the key Wink ...won't be a lot of people watching it here, I think...

Well, I wish for all of you that your theories are true - I closed that case for myself - just want to see, if you are right against all my believes Wink ...(and a kino is much more comfortable than a mass event in London and I get it right in front of my door - so my share with This Is It at last *g*) ...

hi to all of you,
I' m from Germany and I found also only tickets to be sold till the 4th
November. I purchsed tickets for the 31st October and 4th November. I bought them online on 27th 0.30 a.m. and was very surprised that there were plenty of them to get in the afternoon that day, but I am going to check that again this evening.

hi again,
I found out that for the 28th 18.30 ( 7.30 p.m.= 21 tickets were sold, for 8.30 p.m.76 tickets and for the 11 p.m. performance none-
I was so afraid not to get a ticket because I've read that fans in the USA started to wait in front of the movie theaters 2 days before they started to sell the tickets and the odd thing is that I had to try it several times because the website always broke down and I had to try it again and again

I live in Northern Ireland and my ticket is for 30th oct. That's the first night it is shown here, so the woman in the ticket office say. I was a bit disappointed about that as I am going to have to stay away from here for 2 days as not to spoil the surprise.

I'm from Australia (NSW), and I have a ticket for the 28th @ 9pm, the first and only session for that day at my cinema (w/ no sessions available after 4/11). Around 140 tickets have been sold for that session so far, which is a positive showing. I'm hoping to go again on the 31st or the 1st Nov.
