Do not invest more money than you can afford to lose.
Although Disney is keeping the plot of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” under wraps until the December 18 release, British movie theater chains reported record business for advance tickets, underscoring projections that the movie will take in about $2 billion globally. This is just to see one movie on opening day in regular seats! He reportedly spends most of his spare time working on Star Wars and has created ensembles like Darth Vader and Clone Trooper to name a few.
Actors Daisy Ridley and John Boyega basically melted down as they posted their reactions to seeing themselves in the trailer.
The 2-minute, 35-second spot debuted during ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” halftime and was made available online immediately after.
Election? What election? For thousands of moviegoers, the Liberals’ victory on Monday was eclipsed by their enthusiasm for another out-of-this-world revelation – Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Harrison Ford’s Han Solo tells Rey and Finn that “it’s true…all of it”.
Side note: In addition to standard multiplexes, fans will have an opportunity to view “The Force Awakens” in IMAX or as part of an exclusive marathon event should you choose to do so.
If that last one seems unlikely, take a look at this 2005 clip in which Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in the original film trilogy, reveals that he once pitched precisely that storyline to series head honcho George Lucas.
Abrams, the director, prefaced the trailer with a note to fans: “I don’t care if you’re black, white, brown, Jawa, Wookiee, Jedi or Sith”.
But wait, there’s more…IMAX is hosting “Star Wars Saturdays” every Saturday, from December 19 to January 9, at Regal theatres.
