Star Wars fans are waiting to get their hands on The Force Awakens early tickets, and we might have been given a pre-sale date.
We are still just over three months away from the release of The Force Awakens, and fans are already getting antsy about getting their hands on early tickets. Everyone wants to be there on opening night, and it’s going to be a packed house in every single theater in the country as the first Star Wars film since Revenge of the Sith finally sees the light of day.
The only question is, when can we expect to see pre-sale begin for The Force Awakens?
Now this is getting to the point where it’s third and fourth hand information, but SlashFilm passes along a hot rumor that The Force Awakens tickets are going to begin pre-sale on October 19th. That’s officially two months before the film hits theaters and seems to be in line with standard procedure when it comes to selling tickets early for films.
The information originates from FullOfSith’s Facebook page and was passed to SlashFilm by Star Wars Underworld — hence the hesitancy about believing this rumor at the moment.
"**When can I buy tickets to The Force Awakens?**” OCTOBER 19th. That’s when. At least if you’ve got a Century or Cinemark theater nearby. Although it’s likely a safe bet your Regals and your AMCs will have their box-offices waiting to recieve your moneys around the same time. Speaking of bets (safe or otherwise) odds seem decent there *might* be a trailer right around that date to help push people towards that open and waiting box-office on the 19th. Maybe that day. Maybe the prior weekend. Maybe a week previous. Who knows. Anyway: OCTOBER 19th. Tickets for The Force Awakens go on sale."
This all needs to be taken with a grain of salt, but if pre-sale on tickets are going to be starting on October 19th, then we can probably expect to hear something more official form cinema chains in the near future. We saw this with James Bond, as rumors swirled about a pre-sale date and were soon thereafter confirmed by Regal, AMC and other chains.
Even if The Force Awakens pre-sale doesn’t happen on October 19th, we can still expect to hear something in the near future about when tickets will indeed be available for us to purchase.
For those wondering, the line starts behind me.
