Marvel fans have been awaiting this movie release, since they went to see Avengers: Infinity War back in 2018. The story is an epic tale, with many heroes stepping up to face a super villain named Thanos played by veteran actor Josh Brolin. The first installment focused on many characters, who seemingly were left for impending doom.
Infinity War, cost between $316 to $400 million to make. Ultimately, the film grossed 2.048 billion dollars. Marvel is hoping to strike gold with Avengers: Endgame (2019). The setup scenario leaves Tony Stark (Iron Man) portrayed by Robert Downey Jr. floating in space, without any food or water.
He attempts to send a message back to Pepper Potts, played by Gwyneth Paltrow. While this is happening, the other Avengers including Thor, Black Widow, Captain America and Bruce Banner are trying to figure out a way to bring back their lost allies, so they can face super villain Thanos once again. Escentially, Thanos is a demigod of sorts, who is on a mission to destroy everything here on Earth and beyond.
People are flipping out over the new Avengers movie, as ticket sales are through the roof. Reports from Reuters, state that ticket sales purchases through Fandango and Atom, are already surpassing smash hits in recent years, such as the latest Star Wars films.
There have been reports of people selling tickets on Ebay for $5,000 dollars. This sale is for four opening night tickets. One other listing has four more for $1,000 dollars. It seems to be sheer pandemonium.
Avengers: Endgame (2019) is the latest film from Disney’s Marvel Studios. The film is scheduled to be released on April 26th. Ticket sales are expected to break about every box office record known and tickets were already listed on sale Tuesday morning. Tickets are already sold out for most locations.
Fandango commented apologising for their website crash due to the influx of traffic. AMC theatres also commented and posted a tweet about the recent website crash.
“We want everyone to be able to grab their Avengers: Endgame tickets, but it looks like we’ve gotten Thanos’ snap,” the tweet said. “We’re working on getting things back up and running, and in the meantime, please keep trying our website and our partner sites!”
Atom Tickets also commented by saying they weren’t prepared for the online ticket sale rush. They didn’t have enough to handle the overwhelming demand. One spokesperson from Atom said “Endgame” has sold three times more tickets on its site in the first hour of pre-sale than “Avengers: Infinity War” did last year.
Expect long lines and chaos until things settle down a bit after opening day. The official movie trailer on YouTube already has nearly 84 million views.
