‘Downton Abbey’ Beats ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ In Advance Ticket Sales | Film News
The big screen adaptation of Downton Abbey is finally here and the Crawley family is set to enter the cinemas in royal style. Indeed, according to ticketing company Fandango, the film has sold more first-day advance tickets in the US than any other drama movie in 2019. It has even beaten Once Upon A Time In Hollywood in advance sales.
“It’s pretty significant to see a drama performing this well in its first day of sales, considering it is outpacing all other 2019 dramas at the same point in the Fandango sales cycle”, managing editor of Fandango Erik Davis said on Wednesday.
The British series is notably internationally well know because of its Emmy award. It’s scheduled for cinematic release on September 13 in the UK and September 20 in the United States. It deals with the vanishing way of life of a British aristocratic family and their servants in the early 20th century.
All of the original principal cast from the series have all returned for the film including Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael, Jim Carter, Brendan Coyle, Michelle Dockery, Kevin Doyle, Joanne Froggatt.
The cast will also feature Matthew Goode, Douglas Reith, Harry Hadden-Paton, Robert James-Collier, Allen Leech, Phyllis Logan, Elizabeth McGovern, Sophie McShera, Lesley Nicol, Penelope Wilton and Maggie Smith.
Thanks to the trailer, we know that the film will pick things up where the TV series ended in the autumn of 1927, with the Crawley family having to face a visit from the reigning King George V and Queen Mary. We’ll see if they’ll handle it well.
