Avengers Endgame is hitting the screens across India on 26th of April. But within 24 hours of its booking opened on an online portal, over one million tickets have been booked already. This sale has set a box office record of sorts at the ticket windows even before the movie released in India. This indeed is a happy news for the studios of the west as India is primarily feeds itself on Bollywood and regional films, but the past two decades have seen a surge both in the interest and the business made. Hollywood is indeed taking the region very seriously to market their productions.
We have already informed you that the response for the much anticipated Avengers: Endgame was higher than its previous outing, Avengers: Infinity War. The 2018 release had INOX sell over 40,000 tickets on its first day of advance bookings, while Cinepolis India had sold up to 50,000 tickets on the first day itself. For the new outing the INOX chain of theatres has sold tickets worth Rs 6 crore so far. In the US, the film already set pre-sales record and was about five times more.
