Breaking Dawn Breaks Fandango’s Mobile Ticket Sales Record

The latest flick in the Twilight saga is breaking records faster than wolf man Jacob can take off his shirt.
First, we learned The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part One scarfed up $283.5 million on opening weekend, topping its series predecessors on global ticket sales.
And now, the movie holds Fandango’s record for highest percentage of mobile movie tickets sold.Fandango revealed Monday that 22% of its Breaking Dawn tickets sales were purchased on mobile devices during the weekend. The previous percentage record belonged to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 (19%), which still has Fandago’s record for the largest quantity of mobile tickets sold.
“Mobile has changed the way we go to the movies,” says Rick Butler, Fandango’s EVP and general manager.
Mashable recently detailed Fandango’s “Mobile Ticket” feature that gives mobile ticket buyers a 2D barcode to present to theater ticket takers for a faster movie-going experience. The feature, along with the company’s mobile website redesign earlier in 2011, likely contributed to Breaking Dawn‘s Fandango record.

  1. I have seen that service fees for on-line degree authorities tend to be an incredible value. Like a full 4-year college Degree in Communication with the University of Phoenix Online consists of Sixty credits from $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online makes available Bachelors of Business Administration with a whole education course element of 180 units and a cost of $30,560. Online studying has made obtaining your certification so much easier because you can certainly earn the degree in the comfort of your house and when you finish from work.
