In line for hours and the movie is already breaking records and T.J. Holmes is at a theater here in New York City, so, T.J., did you get to see it yet? Reporter: I have seen it, Cecilia and let me tell you what happens at the end. This is really come. No, of course, I can't reveal that the reason it has a chance to break all these records is because this is not just one movie with a few characters, fans have been along this journey since 200, 11 years ago and now this is the 22nd movie in the marvel universe so people are finally getting to see how this entire story ends. Fans were left devastated. The world's mightiest heroes vanished right before our eyes. We're in the end game now.
