I'd say these are my top ten most anticipated blockbusters ever (at least until negative reviews hit the week of in some cases)...

01. The Phantom Menace
02. The Force Awakens
03. The Dark Knight
04. Interstellar
05. Man of Steel
06. The Matrix Reloaded
07. Jurassic Park
08. Inception
09. The Dark Knight Rises
10. Batman ('89)
Good list.

I was in 8th grade when The Empire Strikes Back came out. I remember being really excited to see that but that was in a time when there was not so many avenues to generate all the hype we see these days. My internal hype meter was off the charts for Return of the Jedi and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom by the time I was finishing high school. All of that came via reading magazines like Starlog, though. Then the 1989 Batman movie while I was at A&M was uncharted territory for hype up that point, I believe.

The Phantom Menace is the movie that I think set the tone for all the hype we see nowadays and remains mostly unequaled.

Nine. I remember being OBSESSED with just the teaser poster for that movie. The idea of a "dark" Batman was just so cool and fresh to me as a kid. And then 20/20 did a behind-the-scenes special on the making of the movie right before it came out and I could hardly control my excitement.

That's cool. And yeah, in 100% agreement about TPM.

I don't know if I can put them in order, but my top 5:

The Matrix Reloaded
The Force Awakens
Revenge of the Sith
The Dark Knight
The Dark Knight Rises

I remember spending all day downloading the first trailer for Matrix Reloaded. Ah, the days of dial-up internet and before Youtube. One day we'll talk about that era of the internet like the old timers talk about the early days of television.

I also have distinct memories of downloading a pirated clip of the Yoda vs Dooku fight a few weeks before Clones came out. Blew my 13 year old mind to see Yoda kicking ass with a lightsaber.

04. Interstellar

08. Inception



This was a joke, right?

Avengers & Shia LeBeouf Indiana Jones Fridge movie had 100 times more hype & anticipation.

"Una historia de STAR WARS" sounds a lot better than "A STAR WARS story"

Does that planet (the temples) look a bit like Yavin to anyone else?

I am pretty sure you are right. It is Yavin IV. I wonder if this poster means an international trailer is going to hit soon.

Given the timeframe of this movie in relation to A New Hope, fully believe/expect the rebel base scenes in Rogue One to take place on Yavin IV. Didn't even think it was a question.

Or is there something I missed?

Was this mentioned here?
Quote:

Thanks to the ABC Twitter account, we now know that some new Rogue One footage is coming during their Disney Holiday Celebration. The special is set to be a "new holiday tradition" according to the tweet. But much more importantly, at the very end of the 20-second video included in the tweet, it is revealed that there will be an exclusive look at Rogue One: A Star Wars Story shown during the special.


Something else to get the hype going.

I doubt he'll ever direct a Star Wars movie, but good to see The Beard giving ideas to his sort-of-protege JJ

Obviously it was George's idea being passed on via Speilberg

Good point. It does involve CGI after all

Not enough backdrop eye candy to be an idea from Lucas.

Looked like it. I am interested in them introducing this idea into the movies. I wonder if they are putting it in there, because it will be relevant in VIII.

Ditto.

I recently read the Ahsoka book and it: has a chapter on her going to Ilum and the empire is mining it to death. It'll be a nice tie in from the novels to the empire building the weapon in Rogue One
