Online box office Fandango is already gearing up for "Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones," which opens in theaters May 16. The site, which lets moviegoers purchase advance film tickets on the Web and by phone, is working with its hosting provider Loudcloud to stress test its site and plan for additional server capacity.
Fandango is talking to Twentieth Century Fox about when it can begin selling advanced tickets to the much-anticipated Star Wars sequel. It expects traffic on its site related to Star Wars to surpass the peak it hit with "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." Fandango sold a million tickets in the three weeks prior the opening of that film.
