RED ALERT

BOX OFFICE ALREADY CRASHING FROM TICKET SALES//

ALREADY SELLING OUT //

RED ALERT

Various sources report that FANDANGO and others have crashed due to pre-sale tickets for STAR WARS striking a blow to the websites.. UK sites crashed, too..

Ross Lincoln reports on DEADLINE that FANDANGO was the hardest hit of all the sellers. The site was continuously timing out as the ticket-hopefuls lined up on the virtual dashboard. Only to find nothing .. a dead page. A URL gone wrong in the modern era..

LINCOLN WROTE,
Fandango was most seriously affected as of this writing, with the site timing out before the home page loads when we attempted to access it. Service for ticket sellers has been spotty all over, and though many fans were eventually able to purchase tickets after several attempts, others are reporting they’ve gotten access only for these sites to crash again before finalization. Clearly, this film is likely to meet the already sky-high (or, if you prefer, orbital) predictions for box office earnings. That’s small comfort for those still unable to buy their tickets – Predictably, fans were not happy, taking to twitter en masse to lament their destiny.

And one commenter, Roger C,  on the DEADLINE site opined briefly and effectively:
People are so stupid.
