Avengers Endgame makes history in India, sells 1 million advance tickets

Marvel fans are finding themselves in a virtual queue to grab tickets for the highly anticipated superhero film Avengers: Endgame. BookMyShow has witnessed a record advance ticket sale with one million tickets sold in just over a day.

BookMyShow 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.

Ashish Saksena, Chief Operating Officer - Cinemas, BookMyShow, said in a statement issued on Monday evening: “We expect Avengers: Endgame to break more records as cinemas continue to open the advance bookings.”

Avengers: Endgame is the 22nd film from 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.

“Avengers: Endgame is not just a movie, it’s an epic culmination of a decade-long journey which the fans have taken with us across 22 films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The phenomenal interest shown by audiences across the country, is testament of how this is one of the most anticipated movies for the fans and we can’t wait for them to watch it,” said Bikram Duggal, Head - Studio Entertainment, Disney India.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Monday: “Avengers: Endgame advance booking is unheard of, unimaginable and unprecedented. Much better than several Hindi biggies that opened in 2018 and 2019.”


One more day until Tampa picks its next mayor

TAMPA — The race to become Tampa’s next mayor, a battle that stirred to life 15 months ago, will finally cross the finish line Tuesday evening when polls close on the runoff contest between Jane Castor and David Straz.

There have been just three face-to-face encounters between the two candidates in the seven weeks since the primary — a big change from past Tampa mayoral runoffs, when debates were much more frequent.

Early on, Castor, a former police chief, said she was open to as many forums as possible. But Straz declined, saying voters were tired of them.

Instead, the retired banker, who finished nearly 33 points behind Castor in the primary election, spent millions attacking her record leading the Tampa Police Department, and attempting to tie her to what he says is a corrupt, good-old-boy network that runs Florida’s third-largest city.

Governor signs bill making voting more convenient in Kansas

Governor Laura Kelly has signed a new bill she says makes voting more convenient in Kansas.

“Over the past decade, we have seen countless efforts aimed at making voting more difficult in this state,” Governor Kelly said in a press release. “I hope this will be the first of many laws that help ensure that every voice is heard in our democratic process and that every vote is counted.”

The new law amends the law concerning advance ballots, signature requirements and polling places. Her office says it will expand and improve voting opportunities.

House Substitute for Senate Bill 130 will give county election officials the discretion to allow all registered voters to cast their ballot at any polling place in their county on election day.

It also requires county election officers to attempt to contact each voter who submitted an advance voting ballot without a signature or with a signature that does not match the signature on file.

The voter will be allowed to correct their signature before the commencement of the final tallying of votes in that county.
