LONDON – Ridley Scott’s An eye-popping draw has been proved by Prometheus as a pre-sale of movie break records for Central London’s BFIMAX Theater.
Scott’s movie, which stars galaxies including Michael Fassbender, Charles Theron, Naomi Rapace, Idris Elba and Logan Marshall-Green, has booked 18,287 tickets to the premiere’s first full-hit hit movie in theatres.
This translates to 3 293,312 (4 474,687) total pre-sale tickets, which is the highest-grossing week ever.
The standalone flagship IMAX Theater also reported the highest-grossing first-day sales, taking in £ 137,000 ($ 221,717).
The move has defeated other high-profile IMAX rollouts in the US, including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Avatar and The Dark Knight.
20th Century Fox marked the film’s return to the sci-fi genre, a genre that honours it in helping set it apart from its Alien and Blade Runner movies.
Prometheus tells the team of explorers’s story who trace the origins of humanity on Earth and take them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they will have to fight a terrible war to save the future of the human race.
The film opens in the US on May 31 with a midnight screening at IMAX.
