“Avengers: Endgame” have broken first-day records with the demand of ticket so great that it caused delays for many would-be purchasers.
Online ticket seller in U.S Fandango reported Tuesday that the fourth “Avengers” movie topped its first-day U.S. sales record previously held by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” within the first six hours of pre-sales.
“Avengers: Endgame” also set a new record for the best first day of sales in less than half a day at other online portals, the company said. It has outsold the previous record, set by “Aquaman,” by four times the amount.
One of the online ticket websites saw its web unable to process orders for several hours, tweeting on Tuesday, “We want everyone to be able to grab their ‘Avengers: Endgame’ tickets, but it looks like we’ve gotten Thanos’ snap. We’re working on getting things back up and running, and in the meantime, please keep trying our website and our partner sites!”
“Avengers: Infinity War” set the North American record a year ago for top domestic opening with $257.7 million during April 27-29, topping the 2015 mark held by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” by nearly $10 million.
Avengers: endgame is all set to release on April 24.
