Just know, the movie hasn’t premiered yet but almost all opening nights are completely sold out.
Only three weeks away from the world premiere of one of the most awaited space adventure movies, starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain, the box office has already pulled in more than $50 million in ticket sales for ‘Interstellar’.
Interstellar is not based on a best-selling novel, there is no prequel; Interstellar is a completely original concept from the deep corners of Nolan’s mind.
The fact that the plot of the film still remains a mystery and only minor details are given in the trailer released for the simple act of advertising, it can be said that all the secrecy is to thank for this million dollar pre-release bonus.
Christopher Nolan, producer/director of other movies that have managed to gain pre-release box office bonuses like the one for upcoming ‘Interstellar’ such as ‘Inception’ and ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy, has become widespread.
Interstellar is opening on the same week as Big Hero 6 and is in competition for the largest box office as Disney’s new animated film is grabbing a lot of attention.
It is expected that Interstellar’s box office gains will increase once the world premiere takes place as movie reviews and word of mouth will start going around and more persons get a chance to see it in theaters.
The ticket sales for the upcoming space adventure have already sold out throughout the opening night weekend; it’s gotten to the point where it has been reported that 3:00am and 3:30am showings of the movie are being added in respective theaters across the country.
If you thought that was crazy, some are actually having Tuesday midnight showings and 8am Wednesday showings; 8am!!
Not to mention, the movie was filmed, well, on film! No digital cameras, ladies and gentlemen. Special screening conditions have had to be taken up by theaters planning on showing the film all around just to accommodate this feature of the movie and have the best view possible for the persons dying to watch this movie.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to get a ticket for the opening week; can’t wait to see this movie. A space related movie with no hints for the plot in the trailer whatsoever? And Matthew McConaughey is in it? I’m sold.
