Earlier last week, It was revealed that moviegoers could finally pre-book their tickets for Avengers: Endgame on Sunday in Bookmyshow and several portals such as PVR and INOX. However, even fans didn’t seem to realize the hardship of getting a ticket booked as theaters were sold out in a matter of seconds once they opened their virtual booking queue on the website.
Bookmyshow has revealed that the website managed to sell over 1 million tickets in just a day. A record-breaking advance ticket sale, witnessing a peak of 18 tickets sold per second.
Avengers: Endgame is yet to sell out its tickets to moviegoers who’d prefer watching it in their regional languages such as Tamil. Hindi and Telegu. The sales number are expected to shatter more records when Bookmyshow and other theater websites open bookings for the dubbed version of Avengers: Endgame.
Earlier on Monday, Ashish Saksena, Chief Operating Officer of Bookmyshow said in a statement: “We expect Avengers: Endgame to break more records as cinemas continue to open the advance bookings.”
Carnival Cinemas’ Vice President of Programming also stated that the pre-sales estimates for Avengers: Endgame was more in states like Delhi and Mumbai.
“Around 2.25 lakh tickets have been sold which is about 74 per cent of the capacity for weekend. We have 1000+ shows per day for the movie in over 100 cities. Maximum tickets were sold in Delhi/NCR and Mumbai.”
Even trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted that the movie is all set to break several box office records and its advance booking estimates are larger than several Hindi titles.
This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise since Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel also sold over 1 million tickets on its opening weekend and Bookmyshow contributed to about 48% of the film’s overall box office collection. but the difference is that the upcoming Avengers: Endgame has almost already tapped the entire market in India even before its release.
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26.
#AvengersEndgame advance booking is unheard of, unimaginable and unprecedented… Much, much better than several #Hindi biggies that opened in 2018 and 2019… Eyes a record-breaking, historic start in #India… Dear BO records, get ready to be smashed and shattered!
