Tickets went on sale for Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune: Part Two” yesterday, a movie still over a month away from release, but demand was so high it appears to have crashed the website or the biggest exhibitor AMC.

Mashable reports that according to Down Detector, users indicated the site was having issues with users getting an error message when they tried to get tickets. In addition, they say the app wasn’t operating much better.

At the same time, there was a similar rise in issues with Fandango, though not to the same extent. Either way it was resolved several hours later.

The cast of the film spoke with Fandango recently with star Timothee Chalamet saying it might be the movie he’s most proud of to date.

Whenever Villeneuve decides to proceed with his previously teased “Dune Messiah” adaptation, Zendaya tells the outlet she is ready to reprise her Chani role one more time:

“Would we be down? I mean of course. Any time Denis calls it’s a yes from me. I’m excited to see what happens. I started ‘Messiah’ and I was like, ‘Woah, I’m only shooting the first movie. Let me just go back to the first one.’ It’s so much to take in, but there’s no better hands with better care and love for it than Denis.

I’m just excited to see … It’s just anticipation. Whenever he is ready. He’s a perfectionist in many ways and doesn’t want to share things until they’re ready. So I’m respecting that and waiting until he’s ready.”

At last report Villeneuve was finishing up the script in December but seemed keen to tackle something else first before revisiting Arrakis.

“Dune: Part Two” is slated to open in cinemas on March 1st.
