On Wednesday, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 opened advance ticket sales and has already broken a 2014 record. According to a Fandango press release, Mockingjay sold more first-day advance tickets than any other 2014 film, passing the previous record-holder, Divergent. In its first day, Mockingjay accounted for 80 percent of Fandango’s daily ticket sales.

Over on Movietickets.com, the trend continued, with Mockingjay exceeding the first day advance sales of any other 2014 film, including Guardians of the GalaxyMockingjay also doubled the number of tickets sold on the first day of presales for Catching Fire last year. Sounds like the odds are in Mockingjay’s favor.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 hits theaters Nov. 21.
