SALT LAKE CITY — “Avengers: Endgame” is selling five times as many tickets as “Infinity War” did, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Recent sale numbers reported from Fandango indicate that “Endgame” presale tickets are outselling “Infinity war” by a 5-to-1 ratio, THR reported.
- “That's after the superhero extravaganza, directed by the Russo brothers, sold more tickets in its first 24 hours than any other pic in history,” according to THR.
“Endgame” set a new record for presale tickets on the first day tickets sold. “Endgame” sold more advance ticket sales in the first week than “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” as I wrote for the Deseret News earlier this month.
Preview shows: Preview shows for “Endgame,” which will be the 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will begin on Thursday, April 25.
- According to the Hollywood Reporter, “thousands of shows are sold out throughout the weekend, prompting theater chains to add more screenings around the clock (that's not unprecedented for a big Hollywood tentpole).”
- Some theaters have begun adding earlier shows on April 26 to accommodate the ticket sales.
- “I wouldn’t be surprised to see a record amount of fans reporting sick to work or taking the day off on Friday because they’ll be attending opening day screenings," Fandango managing editor Erik Davis said, according to THR.
Marathon: The Megaplex Theatres in Utah will host a nearly 60-hour Marvel movie marathon at its The District location in South Jordan, which I wrote about for the Deseret News. The marathon will include all 22 movies.
