"Allegiant" & "Zootopia" in Fierce Competition in Fandango's Weekend Sales


LOS ANGELES – March 17, 2016 – “Allegiant,” the third film in Shailene Woodley’s “The Divergent Series,” and Disney’s “Zootopia,” are neck and neck at the top of Fandango’s Fanticipation movie buzz indicator.     

“Allegiant” is outselling last year’s young adult thriller, “The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials,” at the same point in the sales cycle and scoring a bold 84 out of 100 Fanticipation points, while “Zootopia” is holding strong in its third week with a beastly 83 points

“Fans of the ‘Divergent’ series are coming out in full force for the third installment in the franchise, ‘Allegiant,’” says Fandango Chief Correspondent Dave Karger. “Meanwhile, ‘Zootopia’ will continue its strong run in its third weekend.”
