RIDDICK Rules Fandango's Fanticipation Movie Buzz Indicator

According to Fandango, the nation's leading moviegoing destination, Vin Diesel's new futuristic action film, "Riddick" is the #1 movie Fandango fans want to see this weekend. Diesel's third chapter in the sci-fi adventure franchise (following "Pitch Black" and "The Chronicles of Riddick") scored 77 out of 100 points on Fandango's Fanticipation movie buzz indicator. In the #2 spot, Eugenio Derbez's surprise Spanish-language comedy hit, "Instructions Not Included," continues to build an impressive audience in its second week of brisk sales on Fandango, scoring 69 out of 100 points.

According to a Fandango survey of more than 1,000 "Riddick" ticket-buyers:

· 89% claim they are Vin Diesel fans;

· 67% have seen all of Vin's "Fast & Furious" movies on the big screen;

· 57% are fans of the film's female lead, "Battlestar Galatica" star Katee Sackhoff;

· 52% say this is the first "Riddick" movie they're seeing on the big screen.

On this week's episode of Fandango's movie recommendation video series, "Weekend Ticket" (www.fandango.com/weekendticket), guest host Tiffany Smith talks to "Riddick" star Vin Diesel about his "13-years-in-making Passion project" and how "people can relate to a guy who's been crossed-off, misrepresented and overlooked."

About Fandango's Fanticipation

Known for having its finger on the pulse of moviegoers, Fandango's movie buzz indicator, Fanticipation, provides statistical insight into the movies fans are planning to see in a given weekend. Fanticipation scores (based on a 1 to 100-point scale) are calculated via an algorithm of Fandango's advance ticket sales, website and mobile traffic, and social media engagement. Fanticipation is not intended as a forecast of the weekend box office; it is a snapshot of movie fan sentiment.
