‘Avengers: Endgame’ just broke a record in presale tickets
Apr 03, 2019
“Avengers: Endgame” has set a new record for presale tickets, according to Fandango.
- “Endgame” topped “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in its first-day presales record category, which tracks the advanced ticket sales for movies within the first 24 hours.
- “The Last Jedi” ranked as the film with the third-highest amount of presale tickets sold, followed by “Star Wars: Rogue One” and “Avengers: Infinity War.”
- And, yes, if you’re keeping track at home — three of those films are “Star Wars” movies and two of them are “Avengers.” All five movies come from Disney.
#AvengersEndgame gave The Force Awakens the *snap* as the top-selling pre-sale title in the first 24 hours.
