My oldest son has his tickets already…..
The Marvel Universe flick is projected to beat opening day/weekend records…..
It opens April 26, 2019…..
Have you gotten your tickets for Avengers: Endgame yet? Well, if you were hoping to go on opening weekend, chances are you might be out of luck. According to the latest projections, the movie is on track to make $200-250 million in its opening weekend and online ticket retailers are struggling to keep up.
If the movie hits the top end of those projections, it’ll handily beat Star Wars: The Force Awakens.(Remember how hard those tickets were to get?). If Endgame brings in more than $257.6 million, it’ll beat out its predecessor, Avengers: Infinity War, for the biggest domestic opening weekend of all time.
And it should. Not necessarily because people reading the box office runes predict that it will, but because it’s the culmination of 20-plus movies going back 11 years, the film that will bring together all of their narrative threads—or at least try to. It is, to put it hyperbolically, the event movie to end all event movies. The endgame in every sense of the word. Infinity War was too, and now that Marvel is finally putting a bow on its Phase 3 package, we all get to share in its gifts.
Nobody wants to be the person at the watercooler on Monday who hasn’t seen Endgame, so people are rushing to secure their tickets, clogging AMC’s online ticketing site and breaking first-day sales records on Fandango (crushing—you guessed it—The Force Awakens).
This may prove to be a singular achievement; as Marvel moves into Phase 4 it’ll likely keep churning out good movies, but it’s hard to imagine the studio will ever again have a crossover event of this magnitude….
The movie runs 181 minutes…3 Hours!
