The Force Awakens’ ticket sales are already pretty bonkers


The Force Awakens has prompted “unprecedented ticketing demand,” according to online ticket seller Fandango. Traffic on the website seven times their usual peak, and they’ve sold “eight times as many tickets as we did on the first day of sales for the previous record holder.” The chain AMC says they sold out 1,000 shows in under 12 hours, while says The Force Awakens tickets accounted for 95% of sales yesterday.

Servers crashed left and right last night, and the Alamo Drafthouse chain even had to issue an apology.

If you don’t have tickets yet, many theaters are adding new shows, but I’d still grab them as soon as you can.
