When the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer arrives on Friday, it'll be the first teaser trailer for a Star Wars sequel in over 30 years. So it's a big event, sure, but these first trailers for Star Wars movies have always been something special -- not just because it signals another chapter in this rich mythology, but also because it's the first time we're seeing actual footage from a new Star Wars movie. Before you check out what The Force Awakens has in store for us when it hits theaters on December 18, 2015, take a trip back down memory lane to see how the other six Star Wars movies first teased and wowed us with a preview of what's to come from a galaxy far, far away. Star Wars: A New Hope Star Wars: The Empire...

Bit more @StarWars VII casting. According to their official CVs on @SpotlightUK Sam Carr plays a Padawan http://t.co/tlCuybTOYk — lizo mzimba (@lizo_mzimba) November 27, 2014 Also according to @SpotlightUK James McArdle plays character called Xavier http://t.co/tErvpwg9Nc in @StarWars VII. — lizo mzimba (@lizo_mzimba) November 27, 2014 And Tony Bailey plays a stormtrooper http://t.co/bjBcuG95HJ @SpotlightUK @starwars — lizo mzimba (@lizo_mzimba) November 27, 2014 As you can see, little known actor Sam Carr is listed as a "Padawan", a good indication that Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens will include a New Jedi Order (flashbacks to the prequel era are also possible). Like the rest of those listed above, his role will more than likely be a very small one, so it could be that there will be a number of Padawans in the movie! What Luke Skywalker's involvement will be remains to be seen, but »
Star Wars is about to dominate your holiday. The teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is expected to drop online on Black Friday, so you have a few more hours to devour turkey, dip green beans into gravy, and pass the mashed potatoes to family members. just like Jabba The Hutt likes to do this time of year. The above photo is a seasonal homage posted to the Star Wars Facebook page. "Please pass the thermal detona" it reads, though we Earthlings probably would substitute that with stuffing. Maybe sweet potatoes. This, of course, is coming to us from the Return of the Jedi scenes in Jabba.s palace. Though I certainly don.t recall a turkey on a spit in the background of Richard Marquand.s seminal sequel. The image also has a Last Supper quality to it, something that has been replicated over the years. »

This Thanksgiving weekend, we have a couple of trailers to be thankful for, with both Jurassic World and Star Wars: The Force Awakens revealing their first footage and launching months of eager speculation by letting fans see just a glimpse of the future of genetically-engineered dinosaurs and galaxies far, far away. But with both franchises vying for eyeballs and attention, it’s time to ask: how do the two stack up against each other? Best Hero(es) The focus of the Jurassic Park movies to date has been the dinosaurs. That’s entirely understandable — they are what everyone came to see,

The huge level of hype surrounding movie trailers doesn't seem like it's going to subside anytime soon. "First looks" and teaser premieres seem to have more currency in film fandom than the actual movies themselves these days.
With the big unveiling of the Jurassic World teaser this week and the incoming promo for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Digital Spy has decided to look back through the archives to see how the art of cutting a trailer has changed over the years.
1. Star Wars
"Somewhere in space... this may all be happening right now!" This opening voiceover doesn't quite have the same ring to it as "a galaxy far, far away", and without the John Williams score or polished sound mix it just doesn't really feel like Star Wars at all. Still, this first-ever trailer didn't put off audiences from seeing the finished film in the summer of 1977.
2. Jurassic Park »

Throughout November, we've been asking the simple question: What's your favourite science fiction movie?

This is how crazily anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII is: On Friday morning, an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin is screening the new teaser trailer not just before every movie, but also in a separate stand alone screening where it will play 17 times in a row. Each screening will be followed by two minutes of discussion by a panel of Star Wars experts who will go into increasingly detailed minutia analysis about what’s on the screen during those precious 88 seconds. Joked EW’s Darren Franich: "Dear God, I hope it’s just one long shot of the Millennium Falcon. »

There’s a palpable degree of anticipation in the air, and it’s not for great Black Friday deals on vacuum cleaners. No, tomorrow marks a different holiday of sorts, as Disney and Lucasfilm will unveil the very first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Episode VII in the sci-fi saga marks the first new Star Wars film in nine years and the first entry in the franchise without George Lucas’ official involvement as a director, writer, or producer. Indeed, The Force Awakens is the beginning of a new era kicked off by director J.J. Abrams, producer Kathleen Kennedy, and a stellar cast led by John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. In preparation for our introduction to the film tomorrow, now feels like an opportune time to look back at how all of the previous Star Wars films were introduced with their first trailers. After the jump, watch the »

When on Friday has not been made clear through any official channels, though it will likely be sometime in the morning U.S. time. The online release will come in addition to the sneak peek in thirty select theaters across the United States that day.
In related news, it has been revealed that actress Jessica Henwick has scored a role in the upcoming film according to BBC journo Lizo Mzimba. The "Spirit Warriors" and "Silk" actress also stars as Nymeria Sand in the upcoming fifth season of HBO's "Game of Thrones".

Arriving earlier than expected, Universal has debuted the first trailer for Jurassic World in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. And with it comes our first real look at this true sequel to the 1993 original Jurassic Park directed by Steven Spielberg. While Spielberg is back as a producer this time out, the reigns have been handed over to Colin Trevorrow, best known for his low budget time travel comedy Safety Not Guaranteed. Word is still out on whether this will live up to the standards set by beloved franchise, but there is no denying that the footage is exciting, beautifully shot, and holds quite a few surprises of its own. It also carefully plays to our nostalgia for the first movie, which is now more than twenty years old. Paying homage to classic shots, and bringing back some important visual references, this first Jurassic World sneak peek recalls what has come before it like a champ. »
It looks like The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 will be the #1 movie at the box office this weekend, with a boost from the Thanksgiving holiday. Horrible Bosses 2 and Penguins of Madagascar are going to take some of the attention away from the big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins' novel, but likely won't be able to top the $80 million haul which the first half of The Hunger Games finale will earn. Instead, they're each expected to earn somewhere between $35 - $45 million each. These are all fairly early predictions, but the Jennifer Lawrence led flick should come out on top regardless. The Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens teaser likely won't make a difference either, especially as it's now been confirmed to be released online tomorrow (details on that here if you missed them). If none of the movies above appeal to you, then hunt down The Imitation Game »

Marvel are launching a number of Star Wars comic books from the likes of Jason Aaron, Mark Waid, John Cassaday, and Terry Dodson next year, but there so far hasn't been any talk of a crossover between that universe and the one inhabited by characters like Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Giving us an idea of what that would look like is this stunning piece by Alex Ross which he was asked to do by a friend. Lucky guy, eh? Who do you guys think would win this battle? »
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. »
