Fandango: ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Outpacing Last 7 MCU Movies Combined in Presales

Fandango’s official press release is below. Our most recent tracking report from last week can be found here. Follow us for continued updates in the days and weeks ahead.

With a little more than two weeks to go until its theatrical release on April 27, Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” is selling more than double the amount of tickets on Fandango as “Black Panther” at the same point in the sales cycle. (Fandango sold more than 30% of the U.S. opening weekend box office for “Black Panther.”)

In fact, at the same point in the Fandango sales cycle, “Infinity War” is outselling the last seven Marvel Cinematic Universe titles combined, including:

· “Black Panther”

· “Thor: Ragnarok”

· “Spider-Man: Homecoming”

· “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”

· “Doctor Strange”

· “Captain America: Civil War”

· “Ant-Man”

In terms of Fandango presales, “Avengers: Infinity War” is also:

  • The company’s top preseller among April releases, already surpassing total presales for 2015’s “Furious 7.”
  • Pacing to be the top superhero preseller in Fandango history, on track to surpass “Black Panther.”

“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,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “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.”

Starting today, Fandango is offering limited edition “Avengers: Infinity War” collectible movie character gift cards here. (See sample images attached.) With every Fandango VIP purchase of “Infinity War” tickets, Fandango is offering a complimentary “Infinity War” poster by popular artist Kaz Oomori from Fandango Fanshop, while supplies last. Fans have the option to choose one of five exclusive posters, featuring Black Panther, Okoye, Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Guardians of the Galaxy and many others.

    I don’t buy that Infinity War is outselling the previous 7 MCU films combined, that sounds too made up and too rediculous. I don’t doubt that IW’s pre-sell tickets are outpacing every previous MCU, but more than the 7 p rrvious films combined. Stop making this up being rediculous and trying to overhype the film. We all know it’s coming, they don’t need to sell us on it by fabricating pre-sells.

      Not that surprising to me when you break it down:

      Of those 7 pictures only Black Panther and Civil War had an opening weekend above 150M, and the only 2 to crack 1B WW. Ant Man barely topped 500M, Doctor Strange opened to just 77M and lifetime grossed an impressive but not earth-shattering 677M. Thor and Spider-Man did very well, but again not all-time astonishing, and neither had the pre-release hype that the likes of Civil War or BP had.

      It’s also important to remember that the amount of Fandango pre-sales in general have increased exponentially over the past few years. More and more people are buying their tix ahead of time than they did even just a few years ago when Ant-Man was released.

      Let’s also not forget the other caveat to this:

      It’s eclipsing the presales AT THE SAME POINT in its pre-sale cycle. That is to say that 2 weeks away from release, the other 7 pictures combined didn’t match what Infinity War is doing. That’s not really all that surprising given that Civil War and GOTG2 were the only sequels, and while Black Panther was a BIG pre-sale event, none of these three saw a huge surge of advanced ticket sales until the week ahead of release.

      Lastly, like the first Avengers, this is the first time we’re seeing the likes of Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, and Guardians of the Galaxy– three well-received blockbuster film franchises– cross over, and following the critical commercial success of Black Panther, plus all of the above that I have broken down, it’s really not that much of a surprise that Infinity War presages are on fire to this degree.

      Actually if you calculate it it might possible according to fandango they made up 30 Percent of the sales which would around 60 million USD. If bp was the highest CBM in presalses and infinity war more than double it it would be around 120 + million in presalses so I think it’s possible that it outsold the movies combined
