Tickets for the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home movie went on sale earlier today and there was such huge demand for them that a bunch of websites crashed.
This was revealed by multiple sources, including but not limited to the likes of John Campea and Clint Baker.
The tickets went on sale at midnight EST, and millions of people logged on to try and buy theirs.
However, there was such huge demand for them that websites such as Cinemark, AMC, Fandango and Flixster.
They all crashed and fans were pretty pissed off about it.
Spider-Man No Way Home crashed the movie ticket sites & apps!!
We always knew that demand for tickets for the movie was going to be high.
However, I’m not sure that these ticketing apps and websites realised how many people would all try to buy their tickets for the movie at one.
So, it sounds like if you haven’t purchased your tickets yet in the United States, then you’ve got to go and get your jog on.
Websites are crashing due to high demand for Spider-Man: No Way Home tickets
Honestly, if you’re in a major city in the US and want to watch the movie opening weekend, I’m not sure you’ll be able to purchase any.
In a way, it’s nice to see this huge demand for the movie.
We used to see this happen quite a lot, but COVID-19 put a stop to that.
But, it looks like people feel OK about heading back to the cinema.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is now on course to have a huge opening weekend.
According to Box Office Pro, the early tracking for Spider-Man: No Way Home has it ranging between $135 million to $185 million.
That’s a lot of money and I don’t think any movie has come close to that number over in the US since the beginning of the pandemic.
