AMC announced two days back that it had sold more advance tickets for “Avengers: Endgame” than any other movie in the history, and the theater chain has set up a plan to meet this exhilarating demand by keeping some of them open 24 hours a day. 17 locations won’t close once from Thursday night till Sunday, 29 will be open around the clock on Thursday and Friday, and 18 more will not shut their doors through either Thursday through Saturday or Friday Through Sunday.
Such kind of an event is extremely rare, though it has happened at least once that too before: in 1965 when the James Bond film “Thunderball” arrived in theaters. That film, somehow adapted itself to the inflation, was a bigger hit than “The Dark Knight” even 43 years later.
“With a desire to satisfy as many Marvel fans as possible on Thursday and through the weekend, AMC’s programming team is reviewing ticket sales theater by theater and adding showtimes later and later,” Elizabeth Frank, AMC executive vice president of worldwide programming, said in a statement. “In fact, there are multiple AMC locations that will be operating around the clock from Thursday night through Sunday.” If ever you thought of watching a movie at 2:30 in the morning, now’s your chance.
The film which is almost three hours long is the longest in Marvel history, is preceded by 21 others in its shared universe and probably marks the end of an era although the franchise itself showing no signs of slowing down. A direct sequel to last year’s “Avengers: Infinity War,” which made more than $2 billion worldwide, Endgame is expected to outshine its predecessor and smash a number of box-office records in addition to the pre-sale records which it has already smashed.
