Avengers: Endgame ticket bookings are now live in India, slightly ahead of the expected schedule. Tickets for the highly-awaited follow-up to Infinity War are now available on ticketing partners BookMyShow and Paytm, and the official websites of cinema chains PVR Cinemas, INOX, Cinépolis, and Carnival Cinemas among others. Avengers: Endgame tickets are now available in most cities across India — we've listed some of the biggest ones below — after initially opening in select cities around 11pm on Saturday. This is in line with Disney India's five-day pre-booking approach for its biggest Marvel releases, as was the case for both Infinity War and Captain Marvel.
Tickets for Avengers: Endgame are available across India, including Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Chennai, Kolkata, Surat, Pune, Chandigarh, Kochi, Jaipur, Lucknow, Kanpur, Nagpur, Indore, Bhopal, Vizag, Patna, Vadodara, Ludhiana, Nashik, Rajkot, Meerut, Varanasi, Aurangabad, Amritsar, and Udaipur among others. As of now, Endgame tickets are not live in very few cities, such as Agra, and Jabalpur. Depending on where you live, what screen you choose, and what time you decide to watch it, ticket prices for Endgame vary from Rs. 150 to Rs. 1,500.
As we reported earlier, Paytm is running two separate offers for Endgame tickets. There's a ‘first day, first show' contest wherein participants can win two free tickets for the opening show on Friday, April 26. Unfortunately, the contest is limited to five screens in five cities: Cinépolis IMAX Forum Shantiniketan in Bengaluru, SPI Palazzo The Forum Vijaya Mall, Vadapalani in Chennai, PVR Logix City Centre IMAX in Noida, Delhi NCR, Paytm IMAX INOX R-City Ghatkopar (W) in Mumbai, and Cinépolis IMAX Westend Mall in Pune.
The second Paytm offer is similar to the ‘Marvel Movie Pass' it had in the past. You can enjoy a variety of cashback options on Endgame tickets across India, upon purchase of an ‘Avengers: Endgame Pass'. For Rs. 9, you can get flat Rs. 100 cashback; for Rs. 49, a cashback of 25 percent up to Rs. 300; and for Rs. 99, 100 percent cashback up to Rs. 250. With all three, you need to purchase a minimum of two tickets. The pass value is additional to the value of the ticket, naturally. The ‘Avengers: Endgame Pass' will be valid till June 30, which is fine because Endgame will (most likely) be out of theatres by then anyway.
Avengers: Endgame is set to be the longest Marvel movie ever, featuring a sizeable cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Brie Larson, Paul Rudd, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, Josh Brolin, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau, Winston Duke, and Tessa Thompson among others. It has been directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, who were also behind Infinity War.
Here's the official synopsis for Avengers: Endgame, via Disney:
“The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios' grand conclusion to twenty-two films, Avengers: Endgame.”
Avengers: Endgame will release April 26 in India in English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
