‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Trailer Hits This Friday

26 November 2014 10:56 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If the approaching arrival of Christmas wasn’t enough to get you excited, then how about an early treat in the form of a trailer for one of next years biggest releases? Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is the first part of a new trilogy after Disney bought the rights to the franchise. Directed by J.J. Abrams, it will follow old and new characters alike, as the Star Wars saga continues. We’re not sure what footage will be released just yet, but you can bet it will be tantalising given Abrams’ track record of fantastic teasers. Star Wars announced the release of the trailer via Twitter, perhaps in an attempt to keep shoppers from destroying themselves at Black Friday events. The trailer will be released online, but also shown in select Us theatres. These theatres (listed below) will screen the trailer in front of every single film they show over the weekend. »

Will the 'Star Wars: Episode VII' teaser live up to the franchise's previous trailers?

26 November 2014 4:39 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After months of on-set reports, wild rumors, tweeted photos and cryptic interviews, Disney and J.J. Abrams are releasing the very first teaser trailer for "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens" on Friday. Moviegoers are sure to see some familiar faces and designs, plus new characters, creatures, ships and planets that will have fans speculating about what they're seeing in the same way they  did in for 1977's 'Star Wars" and 1999's "The Phantom Menace." Abrams is even more secretive than most Hollywood directors, and he loves to misdirect (remember the Khan confusion prior to the release "Star Trek Into Darkness"?), and the teaser will likely be a true tease that avoids any kind of narrative twists.  With that in mind, it's time to turn back the clock to re-visit the ever-evolving teasers released in advance of all six films. It's a list a billion of years in the making. »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser to air on TV tomorrow?

26 November 2014 11:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With excitement building for our first look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens this coming Friday, it seems that Disney and Lucasfilm may be set to give us an earlier peek, if a new rumours from StarWars7News is to be believed.

According to the site, Lucasfilm is set to celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow by airing a shorter version of the 88-second trailer for The Force Awakens, likely during an NFL game, before releasing the theatrical trailer in select U.S. theaters on Friday. This is of course rumour, but it would certainly go some way to explaining why the Jurassic World trailer was released ahead of its scheduled Thursday debut.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set for release on December 18th 2015 and sees returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew »

The saga continues. The rumours and speculation surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been about as gargantuan as a fully grown rancor, and when it was learned that brand new music was to be composed by the legendary John Williams for the trailer, guessing games on when said trailer would be released went into overdrive.

Now, thanks to a tweet from Bad Robot, the production company owned by Star Wars 7 director Jj Abrams, news has surfaced that a trailer will be released on Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.

Teased as an 88 second “tiny peek”, the first trailer for the latest instalment of the blockbuster series will hit select theatres in America.

Rumoured plot for Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars spin-off movie

24 November 2014 9:09 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the news of the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuting this coming Friday in select IMAX cinemas in the Us, some plot rumours have surfaced about the spin-off movie, set for release in 2016 and to be directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla).

According to /Film and their “several sources”, the movie will take place before Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope and will see a group of bounty hunters hired to take on the ultimate job – steal the plans for the Death Star. Think Suicide Squad meets Ocean’s Eleven.

One of the other rumours to go along with this story is that the protagonist will be one of the new additions to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, suggesting that it would be a younger version of Max Von Sydow’s character. They also claim the movie will possibly feature The Millenium Falcon, »

"Star Wars" geeks can get their first fix of "The Force Awakens" in the following nine theaters from November 28-30. The film will before all showings at these Regal cinemas, finally putting to bed some of the rumors, unrest and speculation that's been brewing online.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer reportedly arriving on Friday

22 November 2014 11:12 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past we’ve heard several rumours about the impending trailer for Disney and Lucasfilm’s hugely-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens; there’s been the obligatory alleged trailer description, along with reports that it will make its debut in cinemas with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies on December 17th. However, it seems we may not have to wait that long…

According to a rumour on Reddit, Disney is looking to launch the first trailer this Friday with a special even that will see it shown before every movie in 100 U.S. theaters this weekend, starting on Friday. Apparently said theaters have been told that Big Hero 6 has to be shown at the earliest showtime on each of those days, with the studio no doubt looking to boost the takings of its animated Marvel adaptation by capitalising on the Star Wars fever.

Star Wars: New Rumor About 'Episode VII' Ending Makes More Sense

21 November 2014 10:38 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This week, much much much less about Midichlorians. I promise.

So much to cover, most of it very very very spoilerish.

Multiple sources suggest that we’ll finally get a The Force Awakens trailer attached to The Hobbit: The Third And Mostly Made Up One this December, cementing in everyone’s minds that May-The-4th-Be-Damned, Star Wars is a December property now. You spend the holiday with your families, you buy Star Wars things, you see Star Wars movie stuff, from here until our generation’s pets die. Seriously, it’s gonna be Marvel May, Marvel 2nds November, Star Wars December for at least 6 years. Disney Forever, I guess.

If you would have told me conglomerates could just buy everything I love and run theme parks, I might have been much more conservative growing up.

Kidding! Kidding! Let’s not politics, because we all know how that ends: Stand-in Senator »
