The movie comes in 4 weeks from today! I'm hoping my local drive-in will be open by then.

The run time for this movie is approximately 3 hours. (And that's not counting the 20-30 minutes of previews.) With that long a movie, I wonder if they're going to have an intermission.

The theaters are probably not happy about that run time. They count on turnover and putting butts in the seats. Longer movies make for less turnover and less money coming in.

A 15 minute intermission would make sense for a bathroom break and concessions top-up. That said, there was no break for the Lord of the Rings movies.

What's the difference? People buying those have no life anyway. Big Grin

And I know your exaggerating, but you forgot about the behind the scenes, gag reels, designer blue prints and actor on set interviews. All riveting stuff. Wink

People Are Selling "Avengers: Endgame" Tickets For Almost $10,000

Surely by now you've heard all the fuss about the upcoming Avengers movie, Endgame. It's pretty hard to miss.

Endgame, which follows on from the tragedy of Infinity War, will mark the end of phase three in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so it's basically a Very Big Deal.

Of course, people are excited about the movie. The end of Infinity War left everybody screaming when Thanos snapped his fingers and turned half the world's population to ash. Since then, there have been two more Marvel movies, both of which teased Endgame in their mid-credit scenes.

So, you can probably imagine the pandemonium when tickets went up for pre-sale. In fact, the chaos was so great that cinema websites crashed trying to contain the surge.

Movie site Fandango also reported that Endgame broke the record for most pre-sale tickets purchased in 24 hours, pushing The Force Awakens into second on the list in under eight hours.

But if you thought the drama would stop now the pre-sale tickets have dropped...well, things have only just gotten started. Tickets started popping up on eBay and, as you can probably imagine, the prices were a little bit higher. Want to see Endgame in New Jersey? You'll need to cough up $500.

For the pleasure of seeing it in Oklahoma City, things get a little steeper — two tickets will set you back $2,500.

And if you fancy catching the latest Marvel movie in NYC, you better just remortgage your entire house. That's right, your eyes aren't lying to you — two tickets for a showing on April 28th, two days after the worldwide release, are being touted for more than $9,000.

In an even wilder turn of events, somebody has apparently placed a bid on those NYC tickets for the full amount. You have eight days left if you want to place a higher bid.

I'll wait until at least Week 2 and maybe not see it until it comes out on DVD. I'd be more excited about a sequel to "Buckaroo Banzai." I might go $25 for advance tickets to that.

AVENGERS: ENDGAME Will NOT Feature An Intermission And There Will Be No Good Time To Go The Bathroom

Avengers: Endgame is going to clock in at over three hours, but Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirms that fans will struggle to find a good time to visit the bathroom as there's no intermission!

After weeks of rumors, we recently learned that Avengers: Endgame will be three hours and fifty eight seconds long. It goes without saying that sitting through the movie will be a challenge, especially if you're someone who gulps down your soda before the trailers are even over and then needs to take a bathroom break halfway through.

In a new interview, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirms that while the Infinity War sequel clocks in at over 180 minutes, there's a good reason for that and fans should be aware that there may not be a good moment to miss even a few seconds!

"We are not fans of laborious lengths for no reason," he explains. "We are fans of movies that you wish didn’t end. Movies that you want to see again as soon as it’s over. And movies that you just don’t ever find a good time to run out to the bathroom."

So, no pee break then, and those of you hoping your local theater will hold an intermission during Avengers: Endgame are going to be disappointed. Co-Director Anthony Russo confirms that the topic of a mid-movie break was only ever "discussed in jest."

To be fair, this is hardly the first three-hour blockbuster, and plenty of fans are used to sitting through movie marathons that go much longer than 3 hours! How will you guys be handling Avengers: Endgame's mammoth running time?

At that length, they are already screwing up the theatre's schedule. I'm sure they wouldn't care about adding another 12 minutes and probably selling a lot more candy and soda at the stand. I dislike a film where something good happens as soon as you leave your seat.

Who doesn't need time to go? Big Grin

Don't forget about the 20-30 minutes worth of previews before the movie.

I'm assuming that run time includes the credits. A lot of people will sit through them to see bonus scenes that are typical in Marvel movies.

Of all the discussions I've read on speculative endings for the movie, no one seems to mention that the one person that saw the only way to win, Doctor Strange, is not in the movie!

Has it been confirmed that he's not in the movie? I don't know, I'm just asking because I really haven't been following the talk closely, but they have been very closed mouth about details. They are not saying who's in it, you can assume the ones not turned to dust, or who might pop up from nowhere or who might come back from dust.

Some people think Loki and Hela are going to turn up. So is it certain that Dr. Strange won't appear?

Yes, Doctor Strange is most definitely in the movie.

Perhaps certain theater chains will offer exclusive character-themed 3D glasses and catheter combo packs.

Benedict Cumberbatch is not listed on IMDB on the Endgame page or his own.

I doubt that Disney/Marvel would release the following poster if Benedict Cumberbatch were not in the movie:

AMC Theatres has stated that they've sold more advance tickets for this movie than any other movie in history. In fact, to meet demand, they're going to keep some of their theaters open 24 hours a day from Thursday night until Sunday.

Also, the movie is expected to shatter box office records, with some estimates predicting that the movie could pull in $1 billion dollars in less than a week.

Yumpin' yiminy!! Eek

Well, our plans to see the movie tomorrow night at the drive-in are cancelled. We're getting snow tomorrow night! Yep! I got the grass cut this past Wednesday and we're going to get about 2" of snow Saturday into Sunday. Sheesh! This is some sort of nefarious plan of Thanos!!
