The Avengers Sets New Mobile Sales Record For Fandango

TechCrunch
Monday, 7 May 2012

The Avengers can add another record to its tally — it represents the most opening weekend tickets sold in Fandango history, and a new record for mobile ticket sales. Fandango didn't share the exact number of sales, but it did say that The Avengers beat the previous record holder, The Hunger Games, and that it also set a new record for hourly sales, with 68,000 tickets sold between 3 and 4 pm Pacific time on Friday. (The Hunger Games sold 60,000 tickets in its fastest-selling hour.) Now, those numbers may just be a reflection of The Avengers' general success (if you have the biggest domestic opening weekend ever, then you're probably going to be the biggest on Fandango), so more interesting is the fact that the movie also set a record for mobile sales as a percentage of overall sales — 42 percent.
