Fandango Announces Tickets on Sale for `The Matrix Revolutions' Two Weeks before November 5 Screen Date
HOLLYWOOD--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 23, 2003--
Final 'Matrix' Expected to be Top Seller as 'Reloaded' Broke Fandango Sales Records
In May, "Matrix Reloaded" became Fandango's best-selling picture in company history, breaking multiple Fandango sales records. Anticipating a repeat performance in advance ticketing for the final installation in the sci-fi thriller trilogy, the nation's largest online and phone movie ticketer is giving moviegoers a two-week jump before the November 5 debut to buy tickets at www.fandango.com. Tickets will also be available by phone three days in advance by calling Fandango's toll-free number, 1-800-FANDANGO.
"The 'Matrix' franchise has the fan base and momentum to drive huge advance ticket sales for 'Revolutions,'" said Art Levitt, president and CEO of Fandango, Inc. "Moviegoers have a vested interest in the story and we expect them to again turn to Fandango to ensure they have tickets in advance to the trilogy's conclusion. We look forward to kicking off the holiday moviegoing season with this great franchise."
I haven't even thought about tickets yet. I haven't decided if I'm actually going to try and make it to a 6am showing here or not. I'll see it on the 5th, just not the first showing. I'm also holding out to see if our IMAX will have it on opening day, because really, that's the way to go.
Besides, I'm so not a morning person.
Speaking of tickets, the universe mocks me further by offering passes to the premiere on ebay. It's for charity, but there's no way I could afford it. I'm saving to go to Seattle for Thanksgiving.

And I really wouldn't want to buy my way in anyway.
I got mine a couple of days ago. A group of us from work are going. @ 6:00 a.m.!
As some of you already know, I'm flying to London on vacation, and then to Berlin on Nov 4th. Will meet two friends (for the first time!) and we will see the Zero Hour Imax on Nov.5th (3pm Berlin time). To be followed by all 3 Matrix movies in a row, in a regular cinema. All supposedly in 'original-fassung', that is, English. I've already seen the tickets! (online) It'll be a butt-number, and kleenex-user, that's for sure...
That's so amazingly cool, nudel.
I can't think of any of my local friends that are willing to go to the 6am show.
I bought my tickets online last night! **squeals of delight** My friend and I are going to the first show @ 8 a.m., in IMAX no less. It's amazing that I have to draaaaag my butt to work every morning and NEVER really wake up until about 10 a.m., but I have no doubt I'll be KEENLY alert on the 5th. Can't wait!!!!
And...I forgot to mention...that I will be thinking of ALL OF YOU while I'm sitting there (at the exact same time as many of you) watching those opening credits roll! :)
Oh, Berlin - I lived there for 5 years some time ago.....Please say Hello to Berlin for me.
And yes, I just came back from my local movie theater with the tickets to Revolutions!!! I was surprised they are selling the tickets already. YU-HUY!!!
nudel! How yummy! Have a most EXCELLENT time! :D
Hey! I've just been to Berlin, too! *twilight zone music*
Ehm... Are you stalking me, Nudel? ;-D
I'll be thinking of all you guys, too! :-)
But I won't be going untill the 8th, because it will be a "saturdaynight movie-drinks-girl's night out" combo for me :-)
i don't yet have tickets, but my plan is to go to the 9 a.m. showing here, then go to work for a little while in the afternoon, and probably return for the 7ish show that evening. if i didn't have to work, i'd go home after the 9 a.m. show, watch the first two back to back, then go back again that night. having to work totally sucks...
I got my ticket last weekend. I'll be there at 6am to see Keanu on IMAX!! I can't wait!!! I'll probably have to get to the theater at least an hour or two early so that I can get the perfect seat. I probably won't be able to sleep the night before, so I may just stay up and watch The Matrix and Reloaded before heading out to the theater. I'll be going solo since my hubby will have to stay home with the kids and drop them off at school (poor guy), and none of my friends are free that morning (they have work, but I took the day off!) I plan to watch it again right after.
