‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ Ticket Sales Set New Record as the Movie Is Anticipated to Break Disney’s Weak Recent Box-Office Numbers

Deadpool Wolverine Plot Cast Release Date Everything We Know So Far

One of the biggest upcoming MCU releases is most certainly ‘Deadpool & Wolverine.’ The movie marks several big things. It’s Deadpool’s first foray into the MCU and also the only MCU movie to be released in 2024, in the hopes of restoring at least some of the faith that the fans of the franchise lost in the last several years due to a string of several poorly received movies.

The movie is generating a buzz by selling tickets well ahead of its release, and The Hollywood Reporter already reports that the movie is breaking records several months ahead of release.

‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ already broke the R-rated record and has the highest preorder sales of any movie currently in 2024 since the tickets went on sale on Monday.

AMC Theatres chief Adam Aron commented the following:

Some 200,000 movie fans have bought their AMC tickets already. This is more Day 1 ticket sales at AMC than for any other R-rated movie ever.

Fandango, a leading online ticketing service for movie theaters, reported strong first-day sales for ‘Deadpool & Wolverine,’ marking the best sales of 2024 so far. These sales also represent the best performance for the franchise and the best for an R-rated feature film. While specific dollar figures were not provided by Fandango or AMC, industry insiders estimate first-day sales to be around $8 million to $9 million based on extrapolating from the 200,000 tickets cited by Aron.

A lot currently depends on the success of ‘Deadpool & Wolverine.’ Early projections showcase that the movie might cross the $100 million mark at the domestic box office, something that no movie in 2024 managed to achieve so far. The movie is also a strong contender to pass a billion-dollar mark for Disney globally, and it would be the first movie to do so in recent times.

Disney recently found itself on the list of biggest box-office losers, as 2023 was the first year in recent memory that the studio did not have a billion-dollar movie. The strong contender for the spot ‘The Marvels’ turned out to be the lowest-grossing MCU movie so far and it failed to cross the $100 million mark at the domestic box office, in the process losing an eye-watering sum for the studio.
