Best Picture Oscar contender Parasite is making history as both the best-selling foreign-language film of all time on FandangoNow and as one of the streaming service’s top five preordered titles of all time, following three superhero movies, Avengers: Endgame, Joker and Venom.
FandangoNow is movie ticketing service Fandango’s transactional video-on-demand service.
The Korean film also earned Academy Award nominations for the Best International Feature Film (formerly Best Foreign-Language Film), Best Director for Bong Joon Ho, Original Screenplay, Film Editing and Production Design.
“Parasite is undeniably one of the year’s most talked-about films,” said Fandango managing editor Erik Davis in a statement. “Director Bong Joon Ho and the great ensemble cast create a perfect recipe for a suspenseful story with humor, heart, horror and more. The film’s six Oscar nominations has only increased fan anticipation to watch and re-watch the film as it finally arrives at home.”
