Avengers: Endgame has crashed AMC Theaters’ website as fans rush to secure their seats for opening weekend.
It was known that tickets would be going on sale Tuesday morning. Fans were certainly prepared, setting several alarms to wake up and be the first in line to buy tickets. While the retailers and theater chains also knew the tickets were arriving, with arguably more notice than the fans, they weren’t quite as prepared.
According to THR, there’s so much interest for Endgame tickets, it’s crashing the servers for AMC’s site. The outlet (and several others) get hit with a 503 error message. Fandango has a waitlist implemented, and those trying to purchase a ticket for an AMC theater are stuck on a paused line while the two work out a solution. It is worth mentioning that not everyone is having issues at the moment. Atom Tickets announced this morning that Endgame broke their record for most sales in the first hour, shooting past the mark set by Infinity War last year.
As you can imagine, people are not happy about these issues.
Of course, once the initial influx dies down, the servers will be up and running like normal again. Then, people will be able to get their Endgame tickets (hopefully) without any setbacks and make plans to enjoy the film over opening weekend.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau and Bradley Cooper, with Gwyneth Paltrow and Josh Brolin. The film arrives April 26.
