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.

violence at Star Wars movie? doubt it.

and there's reserved seating with printed tickets so the long lines will only be at the concession stands.

That's why you only buy reserved seating tickets for something like this.

You are delusional. You cant pack that many folks in that many small places and not expect idiocy to occur.

Yeah, I noticed this pretty early on. Goes back to that first teaser with all the X-Wings coming in low and fast off the water. Also appears to be what Han/Chewy/Finn are looking at when they had their hands up, but here comes the cavalry!

This is no different than any other big time movie release with major sellouts to open the release. Go ahead and post all your empirical evidence of fights and violence at these kinds of releases. We will wait.

Those stormtroopers are so boned.

It's one of the parts spoken of in the "compiled" synopsis online. Seems feasible from what I read.

Walk out of your show littering the air with spoilers, and see if violence occurs.

I dare someone to walk out of the first showing and yell "LUKE SKYWALKER IS KYLO REN" to the people standing in line. Make sure someone is videoing too.

A few thoughts on my 18th view of the trailer.

1) I think Kylo Ren isn't talking to Vader's mask, but to Serkis' Snoke, possibly via hologram about "finishing what you started"

2) I think it could be possible that Han is actually telling Rey and Finn about what happened to Luke/Vader/Palps with his "it's true ..." dialogue, because broken up it could easily be part of him telling them that Palpatine tried to turn Luke to the Dark Side and Vader saved him.

3) Is it possible for Harrison Ford to win Best Supporting Actor in a Trailer at the Oscars right now?

So what are people going to do if they go in all hyped up and this ends up just like The Phantom Menace?

Phantom menace was targeting little kids. This is obviously not the case.

If you go straight up from the space between Han and BB-8, to the very top of the shot, there is a tan flag with a Mandalorian symbol on it (Boba Fett skull badge)

If this happens ... J.J. Abrams will then forever be known as Jar Jar Abrams! ;-)

I think Kylo talking to Snoke is a definite possibility. Actually I think it would mirror Vader and Palpatine in ESB very nicely.

Yeah, I think it's cut up for the trailer. I think that it suit the trailer very well, but I also wouldn't be surprised if it comes from that scene where Rey and Finn are with Han and there is some dialogue from them between those lines.

It should be. Oh boy, it should be.

Awesome call on the X-wings over the water.

I think Rey is crying over Finn's body (not that he is dead but it seems that is his jacket) this takes place on the snowy planet/scene where he and Kylo fight with light sabers.

Def. think those dudes hanging out with Kylo in the rain are Knights of Ren.

The flags? Don't have a clue, but this scene seems like it is after Poe and Finn run into each other under the X-wing.

I actually thought that the opening shot of the trailer when you see Rey with her mask on kind of makes her look like the Bad Robot.

I totally missed that that was Rey.

ALSO...

who is the scavenger creeping around in the ship,(I assume it's the downed SD on Jakku).

Is this the guy that gives Rey the light saber and is the big goggle eyed guy on the left side of the poster?

... that's the dark side... does he find the light saber, return it to Rey, knowing she'll seek out Luke/Han/the old gang to return it and learn the history, thus drawing Luke out into the open from hiding where Kylo obviously could not find him and thus revealing himself to the dark side?!!!!!

That's Rey with the mask on scavenging in the ship

It's also the same mask in the Rey's Speeder LEGO set:

It's Rey. She has the stick weapon thing when she's swinging around

I assume you mean from the previous trailer. The lightsaber is given to Leia, not Rey. Not only does the voice over of Luke say "My sister" as soon as that shot is shown, the hand is also wearing fancy rings. It's Leia.

And yes, it is assumed the goggle eyed "guy" on the left is the alien that gives the lightsaber.... but it's a female character.

Place looks like a castle... Maz Kanata is a pirate who owns a castle that plays host to myriad smugglers, etc. The flags could be those people's displaced by war? Or Kanata's conquests?

Bingo. Was just about to respond to this. That's Maz's castle. Maz is the goggle-eyed alien in the poster, played Lupita Nyong'o (via motion capture). This is where our heroes meet her, and this is where Maz gives Rey the voice over speech we hear in the trailer. Maz is also the character who narrates to our heroes the one flashback of the movie.

I am showing EVERY class of mine the trailer. This allows me to view it multiple times while also exposing them to its awesomeness.

"Hey, you can't do that. It's not attached to a lesson!" So happy you asked:

"OK, Engineering Students...how is it possible to construct BB-8?"

"OK, Physics Students, which laws of physics are being broken in this trailer?"

Wow I just came to post this

I got to interview a guy who served in the Marine Corps at the White House during JFK's presidency yesterday and I barely even remember talking to him now. My wife was sick of hearing the trailer play on the TV after the third straight viewing last night and I promised her I wouldn't show it to my twin 3 year old daughters before school because it was too scary.

Cue 30 seconds after she pulls out the driveway,

Daddy; "Hey girls, who wants to watch Chewbacca and R2D2 on TV?"

might be time to reactivate the TFA Spoilers Allowed thread.

I've seen the trailer itself about 8 times, and 5 or 10 reaction videos. Youtube is a gold mine right now.
