We've grown accustomed to franchise fatigue over the past few years, where once sure bets like Transformers and Pirates of the Carribean have cratered at the domestic box office.

How to watch ‘Infinity War’ on New Year’s Eve so Thanos’ snap happens at midnight

Even if you intend to stay home on New Year’s Eve, you can send 2018 out with a bang — well, a snap.

Reddit user u/Depreston shared a New Year’s idea to the subreddit /r/MarvelStudios, which says it is “dedicated to discussing Marvel Studios, the films and television shows, and anything else related to the MCU.”

According to u/Depreston, if you start watching “Avengers: Infinity War” at exactly 9:48:54 p.m. on December 31, Thanos will snap his fingers and obliterate half the world at midnight. 

Depending on which side you’re on, you can start 2019 sobbing over the loss of beloved characters or cheering that Thanos succeeded in his mission.
