India's multiplex chain SPI Cinemas just announced that tickets are now available for purchase. Some theaters in South India have begun reporting that they are selling out. SPI confirmed you can book your tickets through their website and mobile app.

Given the excitement and hype behind "Endgame," this recent news is not surprising. Early reports are suggesting that the film is headed for a weekend opening haul of $282 million, which would beat the record set by "Infinity War" for top North American opening of all time. The latest trailer recorded 268 million views in its first day of release. It's not a surprise to see box office numbers to be high as well.
