You might expect big coastal state's like California or New York to have the longest lines for the theater, but, currently the state most anxious to see the movie is Mississippi. The Hospitality State is selling nearly four times more tickets than the rest of the country.
Regardless of where people are going to see the movie, the experts are expecting massive crowds to show up.
"Some estimates are putting it at $95 million for an opening," Fandango.com's Tara McNamara told ET. "But we at Fandango have talked to the studio and that number looks more like $50-$60 million."
According to McNamara, the romantic drama is sure to be the highest-selling R-rated movie in Fandango history thanks, in a large part, to Mississippi.
Last year's holiday box office winner, The Lego Movie, pulled in $62 million for its debut, leaving big shoes to fill for this year. If the estimates are right, Fifty Shades has a shot at breaking that record.
The film, out today, is based on E.L. James' highly sexual book and follows literature student Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) as her life is changed forever upon meeting the handsome, yet tormented, S&M enthusiast billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan).
