Called the Chinese Theater yesterday, asking about tickets, and they said to call back today. Just called again, asking for an exact time, and they still have no clue. The woman said to just keep refreshing the site when the trailer hits. Not a good sign when the most popular movie theater in the entire world doesn't know what's going on...

I had never seen the prequel trailers before because when they came out we didn't have TV or the internet. Holy **** those were awful. It's just a random mishmash of scenes with no coherent theme....damn. That sounds like every ****ing prequel movie.

Really wish you hadn't posted the teasers for all the prequels!!! I can still watch those things today and my reaction is still the same, "Holy crap those new Star Wars movies are gonna be so awesome!".

It tells me that I will no doubt be completely blown away by what I see tonight... will no doubt go on to tell myself and anybody who will listen how good it's going to be... and it won't mean a dang thing because the movie could still suck donkey balls!

Guys, the line just got a little shorter: #BoycottStarWarsVII on Twitter is a thing. That's right -- white supremacists are boycotting because the movie promotes genocide against whites. Or some such nonsense. Whatever...that many fewer people to compete with for tickets.

...Upon further review, they're mad because it has a black lead actor. I guess no one told them who did the voice of Vader. Or, you know, the fact that Lando was black. I'm not sure what to think about Boba Fett. I should probably go over to the thread about his stand-alone movie to decide, right?

How could you tell?

Nope. No kids.

Seriously, why is there no official time? This is possibly the biggest presale of the modern era and nobody knows what's going on.

Can you be more clear? Only link I found is blocked at work.

I'm pretty confident I'll be able to get a ticket to the marathon in DFW. Shooting for the only true IMAX in Dallas which is Cinemark 17, but I may just get the tickets and go see it in true IMAX during the weekend.

Seems fitting.

Unfortunately, I cannot be much clearer because it's not entirely clear to me what's going on. It's laughable, though.

The reason it's trending is because of all the backlash against it. Just FYI.

I found it on my phone. I have no idea what I just read.

That's true. But still, there will be 5-7 fewer people trying to get tickets tonight.

Dear God can we keep this thread out of politics? Please.

It is really hard to separate one's feeling of hype from one's feeling about how good a trailer is. The first two trailers were excellent so far so that's at least one thing they've got going for them.

Was the movie shot with 3D cameras or is it going to be post converted into 3D?

Boss just asked me to work 8-10 tonight.

Said no. Couldn't miss the trailer or miss getting tickets. I'm so pathetic.

I work in an office that covers the movie business, we're building a new website for movies, and I still can't concentrate or get any work done.

Almost positive it was NOT filmed in 3D, but post converted instead.

In 2002 I was writing sports for a living and a playoff baseball game got re-scheduled. I found out about it about 30 minutes before it started and rushed to the stadium where the local school district's AD saw me and this conversation happened.

Him: "Where have you been? I called your office like 10 times today to tell you about the change in date."

Me: "Uh, Attack of the Clones came out today, I've been at the movies."

Him: "What's Attack of the Clones?"

Me: "Uh, Star Wars?"

Him: "They're making more of those?"

New Journey to the Force Awakens Children's book coming out next month has the unlikely title of: The Crimson Corsair and the Lost Treasure of Count Dooku.

Early speculation is that Dooku's "Lost Treasure" is a secret decoder ring that makes sense of the plot device of why the bad guys were trying to assassinate Padme in AOTC, and why it made more sense for her to hide on her home planet where there is next to zero security, than on Coruscant, where eleventy billion people live, including a zillion Jedi.
