In this case, you can believe the hype. One of the biggest movie events ever will unfold Thursday night when "Avengers: Endgame" hits theaters.

And already it is setting records. It will be on 4,600 theaters in the U.S. and Canada. And that's more screens than any movie before.

Some of those theaters will be open around the clock to accommodate those who want to get a jump on fellow movie fans.

It's expected that by time weekend ticket sales are tallied, the movie may set marks for single biggest weekend opening ever — and may surpass the $1 billion mark worldwide.

Local theaters like AMC are adding extra showings to keep up with the hype.
