Hundreds of ‘Transformers’ shows sold out

More than 700 U.S. screenings of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen have already sold out, MovieTickets.com said Wednesday.

Ninety-four percent of the advance tickets sold by the Web site for screenings through the weekend were for the eagerly awaited Transformers sequel.

MovieTickets.com said by Tuesday night the film had beat out Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Quantum of Solace, The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on the Web site's list of Top Pre-sellers of All-Time. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which opened in the United States Wednesday, finished just behind the first three Harry Potter films.
