I'm a huge Star Wars fan who likes talking about it, and they are mild spoilers so I don't care enough to not come back to the thread. But I definitely feel they are spoilers and I wish people wouldn't post them on here

I suppose you don't consider the "Qui-gon's Noble End" thing a spoiler since it was an official soundtrack release?

That could have been the name of an adult film Qui-Gon did when he was young and needed the money.

Some of you sound exactly the people who wait a month to watch an episode of TV on their DVR, and then complain that someone vaguely talked about a plot point from that epsiode on Twitter three weeks after the episode aired. Not everyone is going to cater to your every whim. Not everyone defines spoilers the same as you do. Who owns a castle shown in the trailer is NOT a spoiler. It's simply an inconsequential fact that you would rather not know. In that case, again, don't click on a thread on the internet where the very basics of the movie are being discussed. No one's going to spoil anything of significance. But we also aren't to speak in code and invisible spoiler tags when it comes to completely inconsequential stuff like that. This thread doesn't exist to cater solely to your individual preferences of what you do or don't want to know. There would be an endless list of rules if it did, and the conversation would die in a heartbeat.

The vocal-ized tracks of the original themes was epic. I remember thinking it was a perfect mix of the prequel and OT scores. Just amazing.

woooo star wars.

don't ask people to leave, just be careful what we venture into. I'm just saying the castle comment was venturing into territory i may not want to go. that doesn't mean i want to (should apparently be compelled to by TC's implication) abandon the thread. chill out

Good stuff.

As for the spoilers, I don't want to know anything at all about the movie going in.



But I can't help myself



Thankfully with a job, two kids, little sleep, and a bazillion other things going on in life I'm pretty sure I've already forgotten details that I saw months ago that I though we're spoilery (like the vanity fair article that I totally read but remember none of).

Just relax man, let's just drop the issue.

- Multiple people literally asked what that structure was in the trailer.

- I answered with the same answer publicly provided in an Abrams-sanctioned interview.

- People griped at me for posting a "spoiler."

- I said it's not a spoiler if the production itself released the info.

- People complained that they didn't even want to know publicaly-released info.

- I said, fine, then don't venture into a thread discussing said publicly-released info.

And now I'm the one being irrational?

To be fair, in your post you said that it's where they would hear that character say the speech from the trailer, which made it sound like you knew plot points about the film. I don't know if that part was in the article or not, but that was my impression at first glance.

But again, can we just drop this issue and get back to nerding out about every frame of this trailer?

you should have claimed it was a Ysalamir hive TCTTS and see if they freaked out.

You are clicking on a thread which is discussing what is probably the biggest movie of all time. Plot discussions and analysis is going to come up. Deal with it. Juat know that things some people consider "spoilers" are going to inevitably be on the thread.

TC doesn't EU, he has no idea what a Ysalamir is! Next thing you'll be asking him to tell you the difference between a vroksmr and a voxyn!

Is there even a chance it wont? People on here have bought six sets of tickets already. Have they released any information on how many tickets were bought last night? A friend told me that his coworker tried to buy tickets this morning and couldn't get anything until 3 days after release.

Y'all want me to post the entire complied synopsis (not verified) on here? I'm pretty sure that would qualify as a spoiler.

That was from one of the analyses TC posted.

Is it going to be good? Yes.

Is it worth buying tickets two months in advance to put up with massive crowds, retardation, and probably violence in some theaters? Hell no.

Ill go see it a week or two later.
I imagine there won't be massive crowds at the marathon. Only hard core nerds. I'll be the most athletic person there.

Domestically? It will blow away Titanic. JW made $651m, right behind Titanic with $658m. Avatar is at $760m. I wouldn't say it's a guarantee it tops Avatar but it's got a good chance. $700m is guaranteed, imo.

Adjusted for inflation though? Gonna be hard to crack the top 10. TPM is #17.

I'm sad we aren't just getting a treatment of the Thrawn trilogy because I was always fascinated with vornskrs. And you know, the trilogy would be amazing.

I think this happens after the X-wings v. Stormtroopers.

Nevermind, I forgot about Poe being captured on the Star Destroyer

"But Luke makes his true appearance at the end of the trailer. The final track we hear is the familiar Star Wars theme, played slowly and somberly, as a disembodied voice tells someone to "let the Force in."

That's Luke's theme. He is calling for us."

This was the part of the trailer that got me a bit verklempt. This version of the theme over the title card was just so emotional.

Great stuff.
