We’ve all heard this a million different times before: “The Avengers” franchise is the most expensive and ambitious crossover event in Hollywood history. Still, no one could’ve prepared us for the fact that there are people out there willing to pay $5,000 for a couple of opening night tickets.
On April 2, “Avengers: Endgame” tickets were released for pre-sale on AMC’s website, crashing the site for an entire day and making millions of people lose their minds. Other websites, like Fandango and Atom Tickets, also reported similar crashes. In six hours the movie become the biggest first day ticket seller in Fandango’s history, beating out “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.
Screencrush reports that “Avengers: Endgame” opening weekend tickets are now found on Ebay for thousands of dollars. One particularly outrageous price is $4,999 for two tickets on April 28. That’s not even opening night! Other prices include more moderate ones like $100 or $200 per ticket, which is still pretty steep compared to the $20 you’d pay for an IMAX screening.
If you’re struggling to find your ticket for the very anticipated closing chapter of “The Avengers” series, might we suggest waiting until April 29? There are hundreds of movie theaters that won’t charge you two months’ worth of rent.
“Avengers: Endgame” opens nationwide on April 26.
