'Twilight: New Moon' sells out showings, breaks sales records

kristenstewart_newmoon_290.jpgIf you've been holding off on buying tickets to "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" -- and who could blame you, with its Nov. 20 release date -- you may want to reconsider.

The second installment in the human-vampire love story is already setting records for selling out shows so far in advance, according to the Los Angeles' Times Company Town blog.

Okay, so the situation isn't dire yet: Only 50 of 22,000 available shows on Fandango and 13 of 2,912 on MovieTickets are unavailable. You probably won't get to dress up and argue for Team Edward or Team Jacob on opening night, though. The majority of sold-out shows are for the midnight premiere or times shortly after.

"New Moon" doesn't hold the record for earliest sales for tickets. That goes to James Cameron's sci-fi CGI flick "Avatar," which went on sale four months before its Dec. 18 premiere. None of the "Avatar" showings have yet sold out.
