It’s safe to say the “Avengers: Endgame” premiere is going to be a must-see movie event. The movie is set to hit theaters on April 26, and fans of the Marvel franchise are willing to pay a lot of money to be among the first people who get to see the film. No spoilers for these folks!
In fact, those who have already gotten their hands on movie tickets are trying to make some major cash by selling the tickets on eBay. And it seems like this was a smart idea, because one ticket sold at the bidding price of $9,199.00.
Of course, you can also go the traditional route of buying movie tickets by purchasing tickets through movie theaters directly or through sites such as Fandango, but many viewings are already sold out. CNN reported site crashes for AMC Theatres and Fandango as soon as the pre-sale of tickets became available.
The prequel to “Avengers: Endgame,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” is the current record holder for best opening weekend of all time, raking in $257 million, BGR reports. But, it should come as no surprise that “Avengers: Endgame” could top its predecessor.
According to Variety, the film is on track to make between $200 million and $260 million during the opening weekend, based on early tracking.
AMC is really going all out for the upcoming premiere, too, as the theater has chosen three select locations that will have a 59-hour movie marathon of films from the Marvel universe leading up to an early premiere of “Avengers: Endgame” for the dedicated fans willing to sit through the viewing. Tickets for this event — if they’re still available — will run you $125.
The trailer alone (which has more than 85 million views on Marvel Studios’ YouTube channel) is giving fans goosebumps:
In many ways, this film is expected to be bigger and better than ever before.
“Honestly, what I can tell you is that it’s bigger than ‘Infinity War’ … It’s going to be a lot of fun, going to be crazy, and they have a way of still topping themselves when you feel like they might have jumped the shark,” “Black Panther’s” Winston Duke told Entertainment Tonight. “They still have a way of making it new.”
So, there’s a lot to look forward to with this film. The question is — how much are you willing to pay to see the action unfold?
