Twilight Fans Get Ready to Dance a Mean Fandango

Shortly after midnight tonight, throngs of “Twihards” will be pounding their iPads, Smartphones and laptops to book advance tickets to see the next franchise installment Breaking Dawn: Part 1. A full seven weeks before the movie opens on November 18.

Although there won’t be any traditional crazed-fan line-ups around LA tonight at the vampire hour, trust us, the Twilight gang will be there, lurking in the virtual shadows. And come Monday morning, there will also almost certainly be news quantifying the frenetic pace with which this group visited the website of Santa Monica based online ticket behemoth Fandango.com.

Fan site Twilight Lexicon told FishbowlLA they expect this weekend’s activity to easily surpass that of 2010′s Eclipse but not necessarily the advance excitement triggered by the original movie in the series, 2009′s New Moon. The latter stands as Fandango’s all-time record-holder for advance ticket sales.

Still, a recent Fandango.com poll identified Breaking Dawn: Part 1 as this fall’s “most anticipated movie.” Translation: hold on to your garlic strands. (Advance tickets will also be available this weekend via MovieTickets.com and select individual theater chain websites.)
