For the last couple of weeks there have been rumors of advance tickets going on sale for The Force Awakens on October 19th, and we’ve been able to confirm that date.
Tonight I was able to get personal confirmation that theater box offices will begin selling advance tickets for Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Monday, October 19th. This information confirmed individual theaters selling tickets at their box offices, so I don’t know how it will apply to online ticket brokers such as Fandango or Movie Tickets. Most likely they’ll begin selling as well once the major chains open up on their side of things.
This also bodes very well for a trailer release next weekend, as releasing a trailer would be a great way to hype up ticket sales. With theaters beginning to sell tickets, it’s pretty safe to assume we are indeed going to get a trailer sometime between the 15th and 19th of this month.
