Last time the trailer for TFA hit the internet the SECOND it ended on tv - so we're talking a 2-3 minute difference tops - not hours. I'm not watching a football game I don't care about - I've got @starwars twitter notifications turned on and will see it a minute after the football fans.

You realize they are playing it at halftime so you don't have to watch any of the game. . Most MNF game halftimes fall between 9:45-10:00 and you can use your remote control and turn on ESPN around that time to see how much time is left in the 2nd quarter. Alittle old school anticipation of waiting 5-10 minutes for the trailer to drop is fun to me.

People getting intense to see a trailer at the precise second it's released so they can be the first to bitch about it on the internet

Grabbed the Chinese Theater in LA IMAX showing at 10 and the double feature IMAX showing at Irvine. Los Angeles showing sold out quick.

Going to decide which one I'll do as the date nears.

yeah, ticket presales are already up. Good thing my brother mentioned it to me...some showings at my theater were already sold out. Got 7pm for Thursday in regular digital. No DBox or 3D for us.

I think this happened with TFA too...everyone though ticket presales would go up when the trailer debuted but they went up early.

Same. 7:30PM showing was already sold out, but I got tickets for 7PM.

There is a 6PM "fan event" with reserve seating, but it's $25 per ticket. The only perks appear to be a free small popcorn, some trading cards and 15 minutes of exclusive content (probably a featurette). Hardly worth an extra $16 per ticket, even if you get to see it an hour earlier.

Yeah, I was F5ing around 5pst because last time the tickets went on sale before the game started.

Also for the theaters I got tickets for there was a queue system similar to purchasing a concert ticket on Ticketmster. That was annoying.

Yeah, I think I’ll wait 2-3 weeks like that last couple of SW movies.

Wow, my local ArcLights are sold out for Thursday night showings, but I can squeeze in a 7:20am showing Friday morning.

unless I read it wrong, the fan event also has a showing of TFA before Last Jedi. That is too much time in the seat for me. I'll be content watching it at home the night before.

The Cinemark site shows this image under the listing, with a start time of 6PM:




There is an ad for the double feature shown, but no listing comes up for my local theater when I click on it.

I dig the poster...not mind blowing, but it's realistically as good as we're going to get these days. I'm hoping our HR dept is on the tix for our usual Fri AM Star Wars outing...should've reminded them today.

Almost there....

Got my tickets for Thursday @ 9:30 in Dolby Cinema... The 6pm show was $35. No thanks, I'll wait a couple hours. Fucking gougers!

I messed up. I expected the tickets to be on sale later so I will be seeing it Friday. No big deal.

Loved the Flash and his jokes!

This looks good, and damn is this getting dark. Hopefully Episode IX be a comedy.

Trailer is awesome, can't wait for Dec. 15.

Spoiler:
It look like in the trailer that Kylo Ren will killed Princess Leia. Make sense because of Carrie Fisher death
