LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) The long-awaited “Avengers: Endgame” movie may be exciting fans but it has caused headaches today for the presale with potential patrons complaining about waits that were more than an hour long at Fandango.com and a straight-up crash of the AMC Theatres website and app.
Tuesday morning sales were quickly taken offline, according to USA Today. The presale also caused issues with the Regal Cinemas and Atom Tickets apps.
Fandango was still showing wait times of more than an hour at 10:30 am EST as the AMC website and app continued to have issues and Atom Tickets, while loading was still alerting to errors when trying to purchase tickets, USA Today said.
Yo @Fandango this wait your turn thing is cool and all, but it would be nice if the site actually let me select seats and didn’t crash when i get through. I was in line ON THE HOUR and OF COURSE it still crashes https://t.co/VP1jmcumn9

“We want everyone to be able to grab their Avengers: Endgame tickets, but it looks like we’ve gotten Thanos’ snap,” AMC tweeted, although many were likely not amused. “We’re working on getting things back up and running, and in the meantime, please keep trying our website and our partner sites!”

The movie is the sequel to last year’s “Avengers: Infinity WAr” that grossed more than $2 billion worldwide. Deadline Hollywood has speculated that “Endgame” will likely gross $800 million on its April 25 opening weekend.
