Here we are: Spider-Man: No Way Home presales are officially open in Italy. However, as expected, the servers of The Space and UCI Cinema websites crashed just a few minutes after midnight on December 6th. We assess the situation.
Both chains had announced a few hours ago that today 6 December, from 00:01, it would have been possible to buy tickets in advance for Spider-Man: No Way Home, the cinecomic of Sony and Marvel Studios that we can now consider a real movie event.
At the time of writing to you websites are still down. If UCI Cinema seems to have already promptly responded to users by publishing a post announcing that it is working on server maintenance, all is silent on The Space front.
Also, if initially some lucky person (including myself) was able to access the time selection screen of December 15th, the servers would crash again, and at the moment Spider-Man No Way Home is no longer bookable at least on The Space website.
It is expected, a bit like what happened in the United States, that the seats for the premiere of No Way Home are practically already sold out, in the hope that touting will not again be the protagonist of unpleasant episodes of looting.
Meanwhile, take comfort: Sony has released a trailer for Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse and it’s truly spectacular.
