Fandango Sells Nearly 3.5M Tickets Over Barbenheimer Opening Weekend


July 26, 2023

Last weekend, global audiences made their way to theaters to see Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer” and Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie”. The weekend, branded as Barbenheimer by fans, marked a post-Covid record for the box office which topped $235m domestically driving a total box office of over $300m. 
Fandango played a huge part in the weekend’s historic success selling 20% of the U.S. box office revenue for Warner Bros.’ “Barbie” and 26% for Universal’s “Oppenheimer,” including 30% of the “Oppenheimer” IMAX domestic ticket revenue. 

Overall for the weekend, Fandango sold nearly 1M tickets per day on Friday and Saturday and close to 3.5m tickets from Thursday to Sunday.

Also having a top performing weekend was Vudu, Fandango’s on-demand movie platform, reinforcing the ongoing strength of Fandango’s transactional business.
