Demand for free Avatar tickets crashes main Avatar website

It seems there are a lot of people out there dying to get a first look at James Cameron’s 3D Sci-fi epic Avatar. Tickets became available yesterday for  a 15 minute preview of the film at cinemas around the world this friday.

Demand for the tickets grew to be too much for the poor old Avatar website which ground to a halt for several hours on Monday. Apparently around 17,000 of the 68,000 tickets had gone before the site went down.

I’m happy to report that all is well and the site is back up and running. What I’m not so happy to report is that I be one of those poor sods who won’t be able to attend a screening.

I’ll be over here in the corner sulking if anyone wants me.
