As “New Moon” becomes the best pre-sold movie in the history of Fandango, here are some interesting thoughts that surveyed ticket buyers gave the website:

  • 66 percent say the love story in "New Moon" is the biggest draw in their decision to buy a ticket.
  • 57 percent claim Alice Cullen (Ashley Greene) is the secondary character they’d most like to see in his or her own "Twilight" spin-off movie.
  • 39 percent of moviegoers plan to take off time on Friday – from school or work – in order to see the movie.
  • 27 percent of respondents surprisingly picked "Breaking Dawn" as their favorite book among Stephenie Meyer’s "Twilight" novels; 16 percent chose "Eclipse; 11 percent voted for the first "Twilight" and only 8 percent pegged "New Moon" as their favorite. (38 percent said they love all the "Twilight" books equally.)

“New Moon” hits theaters Friday.
