Infinity War’ outpacing recent Marvel movies on Fandango
Avengers: Infinity War is an enviable superhero collaboration, and it looks like our mighty heroes are combining their sales power at the box office. According to early numbers from Fandango, Infinity War is outselling the last seven MCU movies combined at this point in ticket sales.
That means that, two weeks away from its release, Infinity War has sold more tickets than Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Doctor Strange, Captain America: Civil War, and Ant-Man did at this point from their respective release dates. Again those are the seven most recent Marvel movies – not the top seven in terms of ticket sales at this time.
Avengers: Infinity War is also Fandango’s top April preseller, beating out Furious 7 and on track to push past Black Panther in presales (it is kind of a Black Panther sequel, so there’s that).
“Infinity War has built up such unprecedented anticipation that it’s pacing to break records, the likes of which we have never seen before for a superhero movie,” Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis said in a press release. “Moviegoers are rushing to guarantee their seats in advance for what is sure to be one of the most talked-about movies of the decade.”
Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters April 27.
