Avengers: Infinity War Prepares for a Box Office Bang
As the countdown clock for Avengers: Infinity War ticks down, we’re getting a little bit more information on how well the movie is set to do. We have just officially learned that Avengers: Infinity War will be receiving a PG-13 rating. This is not a huge surprise. Every single Marvel Studios movie since Iron Man (2008) has received a PG-13 rating. Since Avengers: Infinity War is effectively a culmination of the character arcs for all of those movies, it wouldn’t make sense if an age barrier cut out young fans who want to find out what happens to their favorite characters. Avengers: Infinity War is basically the first half of a season finale, and limiting ticket sales on the big movie is not the way to make your money.
Speaking of ticket sales, Avengers: Infinity War is doing pretty well on that front so far. The upcoming blockbuster has apparently sold more advance tickets than the last seven Marvel movies combined. Those last movies were Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Doctor Strange, Captain America: Civil War, and Ant-Man. This is especially interesting considering the recent announcement that Black Panther now has the third biggest gross of all time. The number of advance tickets sold also ties in to how Avengers: Infinity War is basically part of a season finale. Everyone’s favorite characters are going to be in this film. A lot of people want to see what’s going to happen to them.
However, I wonder if this film is going to have the same sort of staying power that Black Panther has. Black Panther is still in theaters almost two months after its release. Will that be the case with this upcoming Marvel film?
