Ridley Scott’s upcoming Prometheus continues to generate pre-sales in UK IMAX theaters. The Hollywood Reporter writes:
Ridley Scott’s Prometheus is set to extend its own eye-popping record at the BFI Imax screen as it posts even larger numbers for ticket presages.
Scott’s movie, starring a galaxy of stars including Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba and Logan Marshall-Green, has earned £470,977 ($737,588) from the 30,000 tickets booked.
By the beginning of May, the BFI Imax said it had booked 18,287 tickets in its first full week of presales at the theater. At that time, ticket sales translated into £293,312 ($474,687), the highest-grossing week ever.
Now, one week out from the movie’s rollout, presales continue to smash records posted by James Cameron’s Avatar and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
