Avengers: Endgame is now Fandango’s top-selling pre-sale title. It didn’t take long for the second entry in Joe and Anthony Russo’s two-part Avengers movie to make it to the top. The film managed to beat out all of Fandango’s top earners even before the film reached its first twenty-four hours on the site.
According to the company, it didn’t take more than six hours for Endgame to make leaps and bounds on its list of top-selling pre-sale films in its list. The ticket sales for Endgame begun earlier today, and not long after the film managed to rake in more pre-sale tickets than any other movie listed on the site, including Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens which was a mega-hit back in 2015.
“Avengers: Endgame sales have exceeded all expectations and surpassed Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the previous record-holder, to become Fandango’s top-selling title in its first 24 hours of sales, and it accomplished that feat in only six hours,” Erik Davis, Fandango’s managing editor shared in a statement (via Newsarama), “We’ve never seen anything like this – it’s truly a groundbreaking accomplishment – as fans simply cannot wait to see how this epic saga comes to a close.”
Of course, Endgame’s success shouldn’t come as a surprise. Endgame is Marvel’s most highly anticipated film of the year. Not only is the film going to be the final chapter to the Russo Brother’s Avengers series, but it’s also the culmination of the last ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
There’s a lot riding on Endgame, we know.
