Fans can now get their Avengers: Infinity War tickets, six weeks before it rolls out around the globe. Starring more than 70 actors from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the film is dubbed the start of the culmination of everything that has transpired in the last 10 years, finding narrative threads in every single film installment that has come before it. It'll also set up what would be the bookend to 22-film storyline that the franchise has been treading since 2008 in the still-untitled Avengers 4 coming out next year.
Directed by MCU veteran directors Joe and Anthony Russo with the story penned by Captain America trilogy writers, Stephen Markus and Christopher McFeely, Infinity War gathers all heroes in the MCU for an all-out war against their biggest and baddest adversary yet, Thanos. Mining narrative inspiration from '90s heist films, Earth's Mightiest Heroes, alongside their newfound allies will stop at nothing to prevent the Mad Titan from collecting all six Infinity Gems that he needs to execute his universe-altering plans. Black Panther's Wakanda is set to be the backdrop of the film's final battle as the T'Challa and his warriors fight side-by-side with Captain America, Bucky, and Black Widow among others.
Fandango announced on Twitter today (in conjunction with the new trailer) that Infinity War tickets are now available for purchase.
As mentioned, the tickets have come alongside a second and final trailer for the movie, signaling what we could presume is the official start of Disney and Marvel Studios’ proper marketing campaign for the flick, giving them just a bit over one month before the film's star-studded premiere on April 23 in Los Angeles. Earlier this week, embargo for sites’ set visits has been lifted (including Screen Rant's) offering more details on the much-anticipated blockbuster, while a packed EW feature rolled out last week. With two trailers finally out, we presume that shorter TV spots will soon be airing as we slowly approach the flick's release. But for those who want a refresher of what's been happening in the MCU in the last decade, Alamo is hosting a massive rewatch - a good way to kill time while waiting for Infinity War to finally hit theaters.
Fans would, however, have to act fast regarding securing their tickets, Avengers: Infinity War is poised to have a massive opening box office weekend next month. It’s tracking to become the MCU’s highest grossing film in terms of opening sales thus far, with estimates of $215 million on its first three days, topping Black Panther’s $202 million haul just from February. Meanwhile, total domestic haul could be as much as $538 million - although, since other tentpole films are debuting in the next weeks such as Deadpool 2 (May 18) and Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 25), the numbers will more likely still fluctuate depending on the movie’s re-watchability and its competitors’ quality. We’ll get a better sense of how the Marvel Studios project will do in terms of tickets sales once pre-sale data is in.
