Avengers: Infinity War has already been expected to be a massive hit. Ticket presales have been through the roof, trailer views have been incredible, and the film is already tracking for a $200 million+ opening. Now, the movie is setting a new record on advance ticket sales.
Fandango has announced (via BoxOffice Pro) that Infinity War is easily on track to become its highest preseller in the superhero genre, more than doubling Black Panther. It’s also the biggest April preseller. But most importantly, it is outpacing the advance ticket sales for Marvel’s last seven movies *combined*.
When you consider how big Captain America: Civil War and Black Panther were in ticket sales, this is really huge. It should only be an indicator for just how big Infinity War will be.
Check out the press release below, and stay tuned for more as we have it.
With a little more than two weeks to go until its theatrical release on April 27, Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is selling more than double the amount of tickets on Fandango as Black Panther at the same point in the sales cycle. (Fandango sold more than 30% of the U.S. opening weekend box office for Black Panther.)
In fact, at the same point in the Fandango sales cycle, Infinity War is outselling the last seven Marvel Cinematic Universe titles combined, including:
- ·Black Panther
- Thor: Ragnarok
- Spider-Man: Homecoming
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
- Doctor Strange
- Captain America: Civil War
In terms of Fandango presales, Avengers: Infinity War is also:
- The company’s top preseller among April releases, already surpassing total presales for 2015’s Furious 7.
- Pacing to be the top superhero preseller in Fandango history, on track to surpass Black Panther.
“Infinity War has built up such unprecedented anticipation that it’s pacing to break records, the likes of which we have never seen before for a superhero movie,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “Moviegoers are rushing to guarantee their seats in advance for what is sure to be one of the most talked-about movies of the decade.”
