In a shock to no-one but the most hardcore Marvel hater, the latest installment to the MCU, Avengers: ENDGAME has absolutely obliterated the previous box office record for online presale tickets sold.
The previous record holder for most presales in the first 24 hours of release was Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Reports from ticket sellers are that ENDGAME surpassed the Star Wars ticket sales numbers in only FOUR hours.
Tickets went on sale in the United States on April 2, 2019 at 7:45am eastern, and within minutes social media was flooded with complaints of theater websites crashing, and ticket seller apps having exceptionally long wait times.
How far will the madness go?
Will ENDGAME be the largest box office success of all time?
Probably not… but it’ll be in the top five for sure based on these presales.
