If you encountered a ticketing site that was crashed this morning due to the Avengers: Endgame tickets going on sale, there’s a good reason for that.
Deadline is reporting that Atom Tickets says they are pre-selling three-times as many tickets for Endgame than they did for Infinity War last year. This is all just in the first hour, but it’s also selling more than Star Wars: The Last Jedi did.
Most ticketing sites crashed from the load quickly after tickets went on sale. Some theater sites, such as AMC, are still down but it appears that Fandango has begun to recover now that a few hours have passed. It’s going to be very interesting to see what that opening weekend will look like with demand for tickets being this great.
