Demand in the United Kingdom for advance tickets to the IMAX edition of the film was so high – reportedly 10 times the norm — that the booking system for BFI/Odeon crashed today.
BFI tweeted the following: “Due to overwhelming demand for Star Trek @BFI IMAX online booking is currently down. We’re doing all we can to rectify. Do bear with us.” Odeon, meanwhile, tweeted: “We know you are really eager to book for #StarTrekIntoDarkness, we’re currently experiencing some technical difficulties for BFI IMAX…” And even Paramount Pictures UK took to Twitter to address the demand for tickets: “To book @BFI @IMAX tickets for #StarTrek #IntoDarkness call 0330 333 7878, while their online booking is down due to overwhelming demand.”
