“Avengers: Endgame” keeps blasting through box office records. With the final days until the premiere quickly ticking down, the film has already outsold Avengers: Infinity War in presales on Fandango. In fact, Fandango reports the movie has sold five times as many tickets as Infinity War in its first seven days of presales.
“I wouldn’t be surprised to see a record amount of fans reporting sick to work or taking the day off on Friday, April 26 because they’ll be attending opening day screenings of ‘Avengers: Endgame,’” Erik Davis, managing editor at Fandango, said.
Currently, analysts are expecting “Endgame” will have the highest opening weekend gross at the box office. Estimates have the film’s haul pegged at between $260 million and $285 million. Currently, the highest grossing film debut is “Infinity War,” which earned $257 million in its first weekend.
Endgame now holds the record for Fandango’s best first week and first day of presales, beating out Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau and Bradley Cooper, with Gwyneth Paltrow and Josh Brolin. The film arrives April 26.
