Interestingly, tickets for Star Wars: The Force Awakens went on sale around 8 p.m. ET, not the previously estimated time of 10 p.m. ET. Demand for release day tickets has derailed online booking services like Fandango and MovieTickets.com as well as theater chain sites for AMC Theaters, Regal Cinemas and Alamo Draft House. To add insult to injury, ticket scalpers have started posting batches of opening premiere tickets on Craigslist, charging upwards of $100 per ticket.
Of course, Star Was fans are stating their displeasure with the over-stressed state of Fandango’s servers on social media services like Twitter.
