Advance Half-Blood Prince tickets outselling Transformers

As some may know, advanced ticket sales for the Transformers sequel were huge, and now The Hollywood Reporter says that ticket sales for Half-Blood Prince are doing even better:

Advance sales of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” are outpacing those of current box-office champ “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” and of 2007's “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” at a similar point in their sales cycles.

Eight days before its July 15 opening, “Prince” accounted for 65 percent of daily ticket sales, online ticketer Fandango said Tuesday.
