Fans are clearly eager to see how this one plays out.

The advance first-day ticket sales of "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" have far surpassed the previous first-day ticket sales for "Breaking Dawn Part 1" E! News confirms.

By how much, you ask?

A lot, but don't worry, we'll go into more detail.

Around this time last year, "Breaking Dawn Part 1" managed to rake in $626,000 on its first-day advance ticket sales, but "Part 2's" first-day advance tickets, which went on sale Monday, brought in a whopping--wait for it--$1.17 million! That's an 87 percent increase.

A good number of the sales, about a quarter of them, went toward "The Twilight Saga" marathon purchase, which screens all the films before the release of "Breaking Dawn Part 2."

In case you didn't already have this date marked in your calendars, the final installment of the "Twilight Saga" premieres Nov. 16.
