Avengers: Endgame Tickets Are Being Sold for Hundreds of Dollars on eBay

Willing to spend $500 to watch one of the most highly anticipated films of the year? That’s about how much a ticket to Avengers: Endgame will cost you right now on eBay. As if crashing the AMC Theatres website trying to get tickets wasn't bad enough, now people are taking advantage of the MCU's diehard fan base and reselling their tickets for up to 50 times their original cost.

Within one hour, Avengers: Endgame beat out its predecessor, Infinity War, with record ticket presales. This, in turn, caused hours-long wait times for moviegoers attempting to purchase tickets—if not a total inability to even log on to AMC or Fandango altogether. According to CBR, some lucky individuals who did manage to get tickets are reselling them on eBay for $45 to $50 apiece, while others are thinking way bigger and asking for $100 to $500 per ticket.

The ticket-buying frenzy goes beyond just wanting to see the film: Fans have good reason to believe that if they don’t see Avengers: Endgame on opening night, they'll be subject to spoilers on social media sites and beyond that will ruin the many surprises that are surely lurking in the final Avengers film. Which is the main reason why so many people are intent on seeing the movie the night of Thursday, April 25.

If you weren’t able to get a ticket, and don't want to shell out half a week's salary on one, we’d advise you to keep trying—or be ready to avoid the internet for a few days. For hardcore fans who are willing to spend a few days in the movie theater, you can always take part in AMC Theater's 60-hour MCU movie marathon, which will conclude with a screening of Avengers: Endgame one hour before everyone else gets to see it.

Pottery Barn Is Launching a Friends-Inspired Furniture Line That Includes Rachel’s Iconic Apothecary Table

To celebrate this fall’s 25th anniversary of the premiere of Friends in 1994, Pottery Barn is releasing a line of furniture inspired by the beloved NBC sitcom, Deadline reports.

The collection will feature accessories, furniture, and tabletop items, including Central Perk mugs. One highlight is a replica of the apothecary table that made a name for apothecary tables everywhere with its spotlight-stealing performance in the season 6 episode “The One with the Apothecary Table.” In it, Rachel purchases an apothecary table from Pottery Barn and, when she finds out Phoebe hates Pottery Barn, tells her the table is an antique from the “days of yore.” It gets more complicated (and hilarious) from there.

According to BuzzFeed, the episode was actually part of a product placement deal with Pottery Barn, and Entertainment Weekly even ranked it first on their “Best Product Placement” list for Friends.

You can shop the collection beginning on July 30, with prices starting at $12.50. If you’re a diehard Friends fanatic looking to celebrate its 25th anniversary in a way that Rachel Green would be proud of, you can also enter Pottery Barn’s sweepstakes for a chance to win a free trip for two to Los Angeles, complete with a $1000 shopping spree to Pottery Barn and a Warner Bros. Studio Deluxe Tour which includes, of course, a visit to the Central Perk set.

And, if you haven’t seen “The One with the Apothecary Table,” you can watch it on Netflix before Friends leaves for WarnerMedia’s new streaming service HBO Max in 2020.
