On Monday night the tickets for Episode 7 were to go on sale. The tickets were available on many different sites as pre-order. But no one could have realized the power of the force of Star Wars. Within one hour of the tickets going on sale, frenzy took place. It would be safe to assume Star Wars Episode 7 may have the biggest openings in Hollywood history.
As soon as the tickets went on sale, fans started buying them like crazy. Fandango, MovieTickets.com, official IMAX pages and other Star Wars-related resources were selling the tickets.
The frenzy reached such a level that several sites selling the pre-order tickets crashed. A few hours later all of the pre-order tickets had already been sold. Some opportunistic people have even taken to eBay to sell off the pre-order theater passes for huge sums.
The frenzy has gotten so out of control that the tickets for the premiere are being sold for a 1000 percent profit. Others are taking advantage of the hype in different ways.
Sellers are exploiting the Star Wars fans with new and special collector’s items. The items are being sold all over the internet on various sites. Star Wars- Episode 7: The Force Awakens will hit theaters on the 15th of December, 2015.
