- Tickets for the new cut of "Avengers: Endgame" are now on sale.
- The rerelease will likely draw thousands back to theaters and could finally push "Avengers: Endgame" above "Avatar" to become the highest-grossing film of all time.
Marvel fans can now purchase tickets for the "Avengers: Endgame" rerelease due out on Friday.
Starting Monday, major theater chains like B&B Theaters and Cinemark in the U.S. and Cineworld in the U.K. began offering tickets for showings of the new cut of "Endgame," which features a previously unreleased deleted scene and post-credit tribute after the credits. Showcase Cinemas told CNBC it would be playing the "Avengers rerelease" at 13 locations.
On Tuesday, Fandango and Atom Tickets started selling tickets for showtimes as early as 10 a.m on Friday. AMC Theaters told CNBC it expects to have the majority of its "Endgame" showtimes available for purchase by the end of the day Tuesday.
The added content is a smart move by Disney, as is it will likely draw thousands back to theaters and could finally push "Avengers: Endgame" above and beyond the record $2.78 billion "Avatar" has earned since its release in 2009.
"Endgame" has earned nearly $2.75 billion globally.
This weekend is a good time to debut this new cut, as there are no major competitors debuting, only smaller budget films "Yesterday" and "Annabelle Comes Home," neither of which are categorized in the same genre as "Endgame."
Representatives for Disney and Marvel did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.
