Fandango Crashes With Star Wars: The Force Awakens Ticket Sales
About twenty minutes ago saw Fandango announce that Star Wars: The Force Awakens tickets had gone on sale.
Well, similar to the UK, the Fandango web site has crashed.
The Fandango web site puts out a 503 error as it's getting too much traffic.
I was actually on the site about an hour or so ago, and it said tickets were going on sale at 10pm ET, but it appears they actually went on sale at 8pm ET.
Twitter has already been lit up about the Fandango site crashing, with some noting they were able to get tickets.
