Applaudience: Avengers Endgame to break records

0

avengersendgame.jpgAvengers: Endgame set to become the top grossing film of 2019, surpassing £22 million in advanced ticket sales.

It will come as little surprise to most but after a very quiet Easter Box Office Weekend, data experts Applaudience have forecast that Avengers: Endgame will match the astronomical financial expectations set by the previous films, and is set to become the highest grossing film of 2019.

Due to the very warm weather over the Easter Weekend and the prospect of Avengers: Endgame launching in the following week, ticket sales were desperately low last weekend, without a single film making over the £1m mark.

This weekend’s forecast, however, will make delightful viewing for cinemas chains across the country, with 3.25% of the entire UK having already purchased advanced tickets.  As of Midday today, a staggering 1,177,613 tickets have been bought for Fri-Sun screenings and 2,148,092 sold over all dates.

This means that Avengers: Endgame has already made £12.1m in advanced ticket sales over the Box Office weekend and a further £10m across additional dates (based on an average opening weekend ticket price of £10.28 and all dates of £10.24).

Applaudience have confirmed that Avengers: Endgame will beat predecessor Avengers: Infinity War‘s hefty £29m Box Office opening weekend in 2018.

This will propel Avengers: Endgame to 2019’s No.1 and will take some feat to replace before the end of the year.

Regional Statistics

Applaudience data highlights how cinemas in the East of England have sold out of the greatest amount of Avengers: Endgame tickets in UK, with 34.3% of the total seats available in the region being pre-booked. This high percentage is closely followed by cinemas in the South East (28.9%) and East Midlands (28.5%). More rural regions of the UK such as Northern Ireland and Wales are less taken by Marvel madness, with only 15.3% of total seats available being sold out in Wales and 18.5% in Northern Ireland.

 

Applaudience have uncovered that the most popular time to head to the cinema for Avengers: Endgame this weekend is 7pm this Friday (26th April), with 80 cinemas reporting screenings that have sold-out or reached 95% capacity, with only corner and front-row seats left to book. 

However, time seems to be no obstacle for Marvel fans this opening weekend with 95% capacity sold out screening being reported every hour from 8am to 11pm across the opening weekend, with 904 screenings reaching this capacity in total over the weekend.

Most popular times: Friday: 17:00 – 21:00 | Saturday: 13:00 – 20:00 | Sunday: 13:00 – 16:00

Review: Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N (2018)

Image-21.jpgMarvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N is a brand new immersive experience that opened its door outside the ExCel London on November 30th 2018.

S.T.A.T.I.O.N. is an acronym for Science Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network, where guests will step inside the popular films and become part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe storyline, whether trying to lift Thor’s hammer or taking a sneaky peak at Bruce Banners Lab.

The multi-room experience works more as a showcase of props and information from the MCU, with a degree of the interactive element coming from pressing buttons on various displays.

The experience starts with a video briefing from Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) which works as a fitting introduction to the overall atmosphere: giant screens line the walls, darkness everywhere else, staff members that stay in character at all times. It’s clear that a lot of effort has gone into ensuring that this experience feels as authentic as possible. Continue reading
