Indian fans of Hollywood superheroes are eagerly waiting for the 22nd film in Marvel Cinematic Universe ‘Avengers: Endgame‘ and all hell broke loose when the online ticket booking site BookMyShow opened pre-booking for the film. It became the fastest one million tickets selling film in 24 hours. This means, averagely, it sold 18 tickets per second.
Ashish Saksena, COO – Cinemas, BookMyShow, said, “The Marvel Cinematic Universe has a massive fan following across the world and over the years, has emerged as one of the most followed movie franchises in India as well. The prequel – Avengers: Infinity War broke all records and saw the biggest worldwide opening of all time. The concluding part in the franchise – Avengers: Endgame – is creating waves on BookMyShow before its release, with over a million tickets already sold, and we expect the film to break more records as cinemas continue to open the advance bookings.”
Bikram Duggal, Head – Studio Entertainment, Disney India, added, “Avengers: Endgame is not just a movie. It’s an epic culmination of a decade long journey which the fans have taken with us across 22 films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The phenomenal interest shown by audiences across the country is a testament to how this is one of the most anticipated movies for fans and we can’t wait for them to watch it. Partnering with BookMyShow has enabled us to reach out to cinema-lovers across the country with their incisive data and analytics gathered from millions of its users.”
‘Avengers: Endgame’ will end the story which began with 2008 released ‘Iron Man’. It will continue the story after ‘Avengers: Infinity War’.
In the end scene of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Thanos managed to get all the infinity stones for his armored glove and destroyed half of the universe by the snap of his fingers. Most of the Avengers vanished after that and the remainings will continue their war with Thanos to restore everything in ‘Avengers: Endgame’.
