Marvel’s Magical Run Continues: Infinity War Breaks Pre-Sale Record

avengers infinity war box officeEarlier this year, the entertainment world was buzzing about the announcement that Marvel’s mega-hit Black Panther broke the company’s record for ticket pre-sales in the first 24 hours, besting the amount sold for Captain America: Civil War in 2016. Well, records are made to be broken and it didn’t take long for that one to go down…

According to Variety, movie ticketing company Fandango has reported that Marvel’s next installment of the Avengers franchise, Avengers: Infinity War, has broken Black Panther’s pre-sales record. Infinity War tickets went on sale last Friday (3/16) and it only took 6 hours to do so.

Obviously, this news bodes well for Marvel, as it potentially sets the company up for their second billion dollar movie of 2018 and for Disney overall, who has a chance to have a strong year at the box office similar to their amazing record-breaking run in 2016.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments: 1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?) I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it. Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets. Other sites include DMR and VideoGamesStats.com.
