The reviews for "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" are very positive and audiences are snapping up tickets at a very high rate!

Movietickets.com, which is the exclusive online ticket seller that we use here at The BigScreen Cinema Guide, has reported that the movie is now on their list of the highest all-time pre-release sellers. Their press release (included below) shows the movie at #6 on the list, ahead of this summer's release of Spider-Man 3 and just behind Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.

With the release of the final Harry Potter book later this month, the amount of awareness, hype, and anticipation for everything Harry Potter has this movie at the top of the must-see lists for many people!

If you're planning on going to see "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," don't leave for the theater without buying your tickets in advance! You can print your tickets ahead of time (for most theaters) so you won't have to stand in line at the box office just to find out that the only seats left in the theater are the front row in the corners.
