As Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within draws nearer to its release date, advertising is naturally stepping up, and sellouts on opening night are a definite possibility. Now, despite the fact that many people are hardcore enough to sit about in front of movie theatres waiting for tickets, the question remains: who really wants to? With this in mind, the movie's promoters have made arrangements with www.moviefone.com which will enable preorders of tickets for specific theatres and showtimes. The site will start selling the advance tickets on July 3rd, and sales will continue through to the movie's release.
Just in case the prospect of avoiding lineups isn't enough, there's also a contest related to the pre-orders. Everyone who places an order between July 3rd and 10th will be entered into a drawing for prizes including a PlayStation2, an AIBO robot dog, and a Sony CLIE PDA.
Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within opens nationwide on July 11th.
