Several hours on since the start of ticket sales this morning, Fandango has announced that “Avengers: Endgame” has set a new record for first day sales in the United States.
Pre-sales on tickets have exceeded all expectations and have surpassed “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” the previous record-holder, to become Fandango’s top-selling title in its first 24 hours of sales. Even more impressive? ‘Endgame’ broke that record after just six hours of sales.
The scalping has already begun as well. Some are asking for up to $500 for opening night tickets on eBay.
“Avengers: Endgame” will open around the world on April 26th.
