I enjoyed sitting next to you as well.

Careful with that. Cinemark has long had a no firearms policy. Too bad that policy wasn't able to stop James Holmes.

Sounding like the Captain America 3 trailer will be in front of Star Wars.

Is that Holmes? I don't think I've seen images of him from that night but that's pretty creepy if it is knowing what he did.

Good thing they included lightsabers; don't want to be the first theater in the news for having a maniac attempt to bludgeon people to death with a plastic tube while going "vah-whoosh, vah-woosh."

So, back to the movie talk.

Too bad Billie Dee is so out of shape or old to be back for this movie too.

I see there have been hints that he might be in the next one but he really needs to get to work.

Is he older than Ford?

Yeah Billy Dee is 78 and Ford is 73. If he's going to appear in one of the new films it better be soon. He'll be in his eighties by the time Episode VIII comes out.

I just read on IMDb that Abrams said there will be no more trailers. Figured that was the case already, but this confirms it.

As much as I love Lando, I hope Billy Dee Williams doesn't reprise that role. He is a trainwreck when he is being interviewed today. I don't want to sound disrespectful but the guy is just old now, and comes off very slow in interviews.

He was on Arsenio Hall show a year ago (before it was cancelled) and I sort of felt bad for him, because he was still trying to act like that guy from the Colt 45 commercials.

It's amazing that Ford is only 5 years younger then Williams, as Ford has aged so much better.

Naw, it's that guy in Sweden from a week ago that brought a sword to a school and killed a couple people. People thought he was just dressing up for the fuck of it and stopped to take pictures with him.

Not to get too heavy in here, but you're probably right: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/20...ds-of-violence

The theory is that for every one of these done, it lowers the "threshold" required for someone else to attempt one. I don't really know.

He's had a hip replacement and has horrible back problems. That's why he wasn't available to be in this movie, although he may be getting a cameo in the next one. He's almost in constant pain these days, from what his son, Corey, has told fans...so the fact that he still makes time for conventions and voice-overs for REBELS is admirable.

From what I hear, they're going to get Tommy Lee Jones to play Lando in the next film.

That's probably to keep other people from getting hit with them. Get a couple of guys swinging swords at each other and good chance, they can't judge where they will hit so other people standing or sitting nearby. I know I sure don't want to be sitting there minding my business and suddenly get hit in the face by some geek thinking he is a Jedi.

When Phantom Menace had its midnight debut where I was living at the time there was a power outage half an hour into the movie. The guys with the light sabers were able to provide light so everyone could get out of the theater safely.

I say allow light sabers for safety!

Guys, it was stupid to begin with anyway. All it does is just make some dumb fucks be annoying as shit in a theater.

Saw the back cover of the soundtrack has leaked...staying away from it....as I'm sure there is some spoilers in the listings.
