Online ticket sites such as Fandango and Atom have confirmed that the film has broken pre-release sales records in six hours of the tickets being made available, breaking previous records set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Directors Joe & Anthony Russo acknowledged the news with a tweet. “Unbelievable. You guys are awesome. #WhateverItTakes,” they wrote.

“Avengers: Endgame sales have exceeded all expectations and surpassed Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the previous record-holder, to become Fandango’s top-selling title in its first 24 hours of sales, and it accomplished that feat in only 6 hours,” Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis said in a statement.
