Bids for Avengers: Endgame tickets are touching $10,000 (Rs 6.9 lakh), according to a new report. Tickets for the upcoming Marvel film were made available this week, with a final ‘trailer’. It was previously reported by Reuters that reselling sites such as eBay were hosting tickets worth $500 for the film.

People.com now reports that multiple bids have been spotted, worth $9199 and just under $5000, both placed for seats at New York’s AMC 84th Street theatre. The $9199 bid comes for two seats at the 3:40 pm show at the theatre. The $4999 bid is for two seats for an April 28 show.

People also reports that fans can skip online auctions and purchase the tickets directly for $15,000. That’s over Rs 10 lakh.

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.
