End Game to beat SFA for the #2 spot all time in the UK for openers above 50 million (OW). Spectre with it's 7 day opener is basically cheating but I can't see it doing anywhere near 63.7 million with the pound getting killed and only 4 days. 

 

Personally I think the talk of the legs being as short as Infinity War is a bit premature. Yeah it's front loaded as all get but it has nothing to compete against until May 10th and I'm not sure how that will even do in the UK. I'll go 52 million OW, 135 total in UK. Ridiculous but I'm hoping they appreciate the quality.

The competition for Endgame is a lot stiffer compared to IW which had three weeks to itself until Deadpool 2. 

 

Detective Pikachu is a bit of a wildcard but I think they’ll split it with Endgame in terms of PLFs

The most I've seen in a cinema this year is around 10 people.

 

I have tickets for Thursday, let's see how many turn up.

7 for Vue Cambridge all sold out days ago. Morning shows at 8am all day like 30 screens most are nearly sold out.

Tbf, most screens in the Vue are less than 50 seats.

CW Crawley finally picking up and going a bit cray cray.

 

14/15 screens are being used for midnights / doubles. 8 are currently sold out, and the others are very near to being.

 

35 showings on Thursday, 5 complete sellouts

37 showings on Friday, 10 complete sellouts

37 showings on Saturday, 6 complete sellouts

 

Unless walkups are huge for Thursday, I'd expect Friday to be bigger than Thursday (not including midnights), then probably Saturday to be bigger than that, then Sunday a bit smaller. Needless to say, this is just finally starting to feel like TFA, though that still had crazier sellouts, we know MCU is known for its walkups.

Pretty much all the midnight showings for Vue Stratford are sold out. There were seats this morning/afternoon, but they're all gone now. Can't wait.

Opening weekend is going to be bigger, but I doubt EG will have the legs of TFA. At the moment it seems to get quieter from Monday onwards, whereas I remember IMAX TFA selling out evening showings for 3-4 weeks near me. WOM could change that, but I don’t think it’ll reach those heights.

 

Sheffield update:

 

CW Sheffield now has 18 screens showing it at midnight, all sold out (or near enough). They only have two more screens available, one of which is one of those awful Screen X screens that they won’t be able to use for Avengers as it’s seemingly not available in the format, I’d imagine they’ll open the last screen later for any walk ups. The lobby there will be an absolute war zone tonight, I feel sorry for the poor souls working on the concessions stand!

 

Curzon has now sold out its last screen too.

Well of course, I thought that was obvious I was only talking OW. My bad. The legs of TFA here were as insane as USA, literally had like 10 Saturday's in a row

Oh okay, cool. :)

 

I've been keeping an eye on CW Sheffield but it has way too many showings :P 

 

That's why I watch CW Crawley, not only because it's my home theatre, but because there's no Odeon or Cineworld within half hour drive, so if you want to watch anything within the area, you go to CW Crawley. And it always goes batshit crazy for Star Wars and MCU

Good fucking god, Stevenage CW has gone 15/16 for peak tomorrow. The only survivor now is Pet Semetary and that is bound to go down at this point.

Surely this is topping £5m midnights with all these sellouts. I can’t see this not breaking OD record either. I’m in Thailand right now so I haven’t been keeping track much recently but hoping for £35m+ over the 4 day. From the sounds of it, seems more likely than not.

The Force Awaken came out in December so the weekdays are basically a Saturday every day and it managed to keep all the premium formats for a good month which Endgame doesn't have due to heavier competition in May, Endgame does have a Bank Holiday coming up which will help its second weekend.

As if 5 pm yesterday presales were 1.26million tickets,

 

£13,150,171 already before it opened

That can’t be right is it? because as of Monday 15th April, almost two weeks ago, it had apparently sold 1.19 million tickets? 

 

Unless that initial number was wrong

Yeah obviously could be wrong that's the problem the UK reporting is god awful for presales. Nothing on midnights yet. It popped early but presales slowed to a crawl after the first couple days.

Spoiler post is deleted on main Avengers End Game thread from page 573. However several viewed (I missed it by 5 seconds). Be advised if you are truly concerned about spoilers I'm not sure any thread is safe from trolls so be careful.
