Disney is here and they don’t want some of your money; they want all of your money. The pre-sale numbers are coming for Avengers: Infinity War and they are insane which is sort of to be expected. These numbers are blowing some serious minds though. According to The Hollywood Reporter and Fandango have said that Avengers: Infinity War has sold more pre-sale tickets than the last seven Marvel movies combined.
Fandango says sales for Infinity War are outpacing those for Black Panther by more than two-to-one during the same point in time — not to mention coming in ahead of the last seven titles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe combined (those seven are Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Doctor Strange, Captain America: Civil War and Ant-Man. Further, Infinity War has already surpassed Furious 7 to become Fandango’s top all-time April preseller, a milestone the Avengers threequel actually achieved on March 27.
Avengers: Infinity War is looking to join a very exclusive club as well. There have thus far only been five movies that have made over $200 million domestically in their first three days and it’s a very Disney heavy list. The movies include Black Panther ($202 million), The Avengers ($207.4 million), Jurassic World ($208.8 million), Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($220 million), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($248 million). Infinity War is well on its way to joining that exclusive club of mostly Disney movies.
Time to make all of the money.
Summary: As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality.
