Avengers Endgame PosterThe final installment of Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Avengers: Endgame” will hit the theatres on Friday (Apr 26).

Bangladeshi moviegoers will be also able to see the highly anticipated final installment in a decade-long superhero story from Walt Disney Co's Marvel Studios at the Star Cineplex in Dhaka with the whole world.

The rush for tickets appeared to be intense as Star Cineplex’s website was inaccessible late on Thursday.

The movie is on its way to becoming a record-breaking phenomenon in neighboring India as well.

Cinema hall chains have sought permission to screen the film post-midnight, reports the Hindustan Times.

With a million tickets sold in advance already, cinema hall owners are milking the film as much as possible.

A report in Bollywood Hungama says that the upcoming Marvel mammoth will be screened 24x7 in India.

According to the website, a multiplex chain has got permission to screen the film post-midnight throughout India. Laws in India state the no movie screening should start after midnight but looks like Avengers just might bend the rules for itself.

Joe and Anthony RussoA source from a multiplex chain told Bollywood Hungama, “The permission came through today and we were informed of the same verbally. The permission, however, is given only for Avengers: Endgame. We are now sitting down to chalk the programming for these post-midnight shows. However, as of now we are planning to have these shows only in A-tier cities and especially in IMAX and 4DX versions.” The report also mentions that a new show for 3.20 am has opened for bookings in Mumbai’s Carnival IMAX in Wadala.

Ticket booking app BookMyShow has witnessed a record advance ticket sale with one million tickets sold in just over a day. The app witnessed a peak of 18 tickets per second, even before the film releases in cinemas on April 26 in India in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

Avengers: Endgame is the 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the latest after Captain Marvel, which released last month.

The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, and Brie Larson, amongst others.
