The Avengers ticket pre-sales are 150% that of all the individual Avengers member films combined

Apr. 26, 2012by: Alex Maidy

We all knew THE AVENGERS was going to open huge, but now we know how huge it is going to be.

Based on a press release from MovieTickets.com, THE AVENGERS is tracking at one and a half times the pre-sales of IRON MAN, IRON MAN 2, THOR, and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER combined (at the same point in the sales cycle).

From the press release: MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS is selling 3,995% more tickets than CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER at the same point in the sales cycle.

MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS is selling 1,034% more tickets than THOR at the same point in the sales cycle.

MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS is selling 114% more tickets than IRON MAN 2 at the same point in the sales cycle.

MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS is selling 1,406% more tickets than IRON MAN at the same point in the sales cycle.

56% of pre-sales for MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS are from fans wanting to see the film in 3D. Nearly 37% of pre-sales for MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS are from moviegoers buying tickets to see the film in IMAX 3D.

What this tells us is that the film is going to open somewhere in the range of 160-200 million, or more.  That is a very, very nice opening weekend for a movie and one hell of a way to kick the summer movie season off.  There will likely be a drop off in week two, but those numbers will cement sequels to both THE AVENGERS as well as the likely Black Widow/Hawkeye spin-off.

Do you already have your tickets purchased for THE AVENGERS opening May 4th?

I've already got my tickets to see it in 3D, but that's only because my local theater isn't offering any 2D showings at midnight.

Just got back from watching this and it well and truly lives up to the hype! So happy with how the movie turned out, the perfect balance of humour and seriousness when it counted.

Saw the 2D version and I didn't see anything that would have been improved by an extra dimension.

Comes out today in London!

Avengers releases in London today, I've got my tickets booked for tomorrow!! Going with the 2D, I wear glasses so 3D isn't the most pleasant movie experience.

The one that interested me was...

"MARVELS THE AVENGERS is selling 114% more tickets than IRON MAN 2 at the same point in the sales cycle."

If people remember Iron Man 2 made 128 million in it's opening weekend. That pretty much confirms 150-160 million weekend at the minimum. I wish I can see the comparison to Hunger Games..that'll tell if it'll start breaking records.

Just found out that the Big IMAX here in Orlando isn't playing the Avengers since the theater uses film and the movie is digital. Slightly disappointed, but that won't stop my excitment from seeing it opening weekend.

Black Widow/Hawkeye spin-off

I hope there will be one, because, in AVENGERS, there is chemistry between those 2, and some clues about an untold history between them I'd like to see.
BTW, Violentjkd, unfortunately the AVENGERS ASSEMBLE line is not in the film... Hope to have it in A2 !

Can't wait.....

I have yet to purchase my ticket yet, but that's only because I'll be going to 2 advanced screenings at the beginning of next week. But this movie will definitely be getting a few shekels from me at some point next weekend. Gotta see it with my buddies who don't have the luxury of attending the screenings.

Take it all in and enjoy the final days before the release of one of the most anticipated Superhero movies of all-time. Avengers Assemble!
