"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", Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis said in the statement.
What did the new Avengers Endgame trailer show?
Thanos' motives in Avengers: Infinity War ended up being different than his comic book counterpart.
Via ImpAwards, each poster features a surviving character - Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Bruce Banner, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, Rocket Raccoon, Nebula, War Machine, and Okoye - presented with a space-like background, looking ready for battle. This comes alongside the announcement that Endgame tickets are now on sale. The pre-booking of the tickets for the movie has started and the pre-sales have already broken records.
Fans took to social media to complain about websites crashing, error codes and long waits to get their tickets.
"It's been hours and they paused the site", a fan called Bakuhoe wrote on Twitter. Captain Marvel just easily passed the $1 billion mark a few weeks after its release, making it the seventh Marvel title to achieve that milestone ahead of Endgame all but guaranteed to be the eighth.
Larson's Carol Danvers (a.k.a. Captain Marvel) will make her Avengers debut in "Avengers: Endgame", which hits the big screen April 26. Currently, Infinity War holds the opening weekend box office record in the USA with about $257.7 million. Turns out, even the high end was too low - the movie breezed past that for an opening week domestic box office of $257 million.
