Advance Ticket Sales For STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Causes IMAX Website To Crash

Star Trek Into Darkness has already been named the second most anticipated movie of the summer in North America by Fandango readers, but when tickets went on sale in the UK yesterday, chaos ensued! Read on for details!

If someone had told you a few years ago that demand for tickets to a Star Trek movie would cause the IMAX website to crash, would you have believed them? Probably not. Of course, that was before J.J. Abrams reinvigorated the franchise with the superb 2009 reboot and the announcement that his next project will be Star Wars Episode VII! Tickets for Star Trek Into Darkness were in fact so in demand yesterday that the IMAX website ended up crashing (as you can see from the Tweets below). The site was inundated by fans and couldn't cope with having 10x as much traffic as usual; the last time that happened was for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. Will we see the Star Trek sequel join the $1 billion box office club? It certainly seems likely at this point...
















When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
