2 real things about TFA coming out this week.

1) Last night I lost my spot in our FFL league when Manning hit OBJr on that 86-yard bomb. Didn't bother me for more than 10 seconds because Star Wars.

2) Today while driving my kids to school I started formulating a plan for what I'll do if my car breaks down while driving to the theater on Friday night.

Okay, I think Boyega was trolling nerds everywhere at that Red Carpet premiere:

he was wearing one black glove on his right hand.
So does this confirm that Leia boinked Lando, and that Finn is their love child who happens to be strong in the force, a grandson of Darth Vader, and he loses his hand echoing the original trilogy?
Oh........my.......God. He was right!!!



So does this mean we may see Thanos in Episode 8??!?

Doubtful. Once the movie is out, this person would suffer the wrath of the entire EB.

The guys at work started an office pool to predict who dies. I went with Chewie (Han & Leia were already taken.

My competitive nature is going to mess up how I watch the movie in the same way playing fantasy football changes how you watch the game. Am I going to root for Chewie's death now? If he dies, will I fist pump my victory while my kids sit beside me, traumatized!

Seems harmless enough. If someone actually knew the outcome, nobody would have any way of knowing beforehand that they knew.

So not sure why Muck is so upset.

At this point, I'm already nervous that any speculation could be made with a hint of truth or knowledge from one of you (accidentally or intentionally), so I'm cautiously reading and avoiding most actual movie discussion / predictions.

1) Yes
2) Yes
3) Yes, and possibly. China will be the determining factor for the international market.
4) 10 days, I'm being optimistic.
5) Han. Oh and lots of Stormtroopers.
6) C- Final scene.
7) Light when we see him, but probably tapped into the darkside at some point in the intervening years.

IF Chewie makes it out of episode 7 alive, will Peter Mayhew be able to continue playing the wookie in episode 8?

Seriously?

There are only so many characters, and the other questions are practically 50-50.

There is no way for you to know what posts are a spoiler, if any.

But if you're that anxious about it, probably best you come back after you watch it.

Relax, guys.

I wonder if all of the presales hype is going to back fire at the expected numbers... (please forgive if this has already been addressed)... I was not up for fighting the crowds for opening night with the fam... and when I didn't buy any tickets when they first came available, I heard STAR WARS is SOLD OUT for weeks... So I was expecting to wait till the hype died down to take mrs gravy and the gravy kids to see it

but I thought i'd check to see if there were shows that weren't sold out. Turns out, as of yesterday, I could still buy tickets to an opening night showing at 8pm at my local cinemark... but the 7:30pm showing was sold out.

Friday at my local cinemark, there were 19 showtimes between regular and 3-D screens... as of yesterday, only the 7:30pm showtime was sold out.

So... what does SOLD OUT mean? Were tickets only sold out for like one show a day... and then many more screens were added, but not presold?

I have talked to a handful of people who didn't buy tickets yet, and also assumed that it was impossible to think about going for a week or so.
