Los Angeles (September 27, 2018) – “Night School” is leading Fandango’s weekend ticket sales and Fanticipation movie buzz index, garnering 82 out of 100 Fanticipation points, and outpacing Kevin Hart’s previous comedy hits, “Central Intelligence” and “Ride Along 2,” at the same point in the Fandango sales cycle.
