LOS ANGELES – Fans are packing theaters for the new Harry Potter movie.
The fourth film in the series is called "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" and it's had an early sendoff with special midnight showings in select theaters around the country.
Fandango, the nation's largest movie ticketing service, says the new PG-rated episode has accounted for more than 90 percent of its advance ticket sales this week, making it the fastest selling of the Potter flicks.
It's also the best draw since "Star Wars: Episode Three-Revenge of the Sith" opened this summer.
And the new Potter flick's been getting good reviews, to boot. Fandango's CEO says the buzz about the fourth Potter film has been "tremendous."
