Weeks Away and Endgame Is Breaking Box Office Records
We are just weeks away from Marvel’s Avengers Endgame. The movie will be the end of a ten-year story that saw Thanos assemble all of the Infinity Stones, put them in his Gauntlet, and decimate the entire universe with a single snap of his fingers. At the conclusion of last years Infinity War, Thanos has successfully killed half of the heroes in the MCU. Winter Soldier. Spider-Man. Falcon. Black Panther. Scarlet Witch. Star-Lord. Groot. Drax the Destroyer. Mantis. And more. Gone. Dead gone. Endgame picks up directly after that snap. It sees the surviving heroes dejected and without a way.
Thus far, the trailers have done a great job of setting up what will surely be the most epic of all movie conclusions in our short history. I suppose that an argument could be made that movies like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter are on the same epic conclusion level. However, each of those didn’t have so much uncertainty in them. Everybody knew that Aragorn would become King and Harry would defeat Voldemort. Endgame is different. I have no doubt that the heroes will win but the question is, at what cost? Remember, the original three (Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor) contracts are set to expire and nobody knows if any of those heroes will survive or not.
Endgame is breaking box office records
It’s a combination of all of these things that will propel the movie to unprecedented heights. It’s going to make money and lots of it. Point in case, both movie ticket sale websites Fandango and Atom are reporting sold presale tickets outpacing Infinity War three times over.
The anticipation is so strong that some users have waited upwards of an hour to reserve their tickets.
But it doesn’t end there.
By the sheer volume of people looking to secure their spot on opening night, some movie theatre chains experienced site crashes. It’s pretty incredible if you think about it. So, what does this mean for you? It means that if you have any hope of seeing the movie on opening night, you’d best act quick and get your tickets.
