Let's put it this way, he didn't age as gracefully as a Clint Eastwood did who is still cool into his 80's.

Carrie Fisher's speech pattern didnt stop them from putting her in TFA. She sounded like someone who had suffered a severe brain injury. They also showed in that movie they weren't shy about using CGI to cover a lifetime of hard livin. They certainly could have propped up Billy Dee well enough to put him in this. Hell, they could have made him an old Lothario surrounded by young chippies taking care of him in his old age.

Billy Dee sounds fine on the episodes of Rebels that they've gotten him to do. Who knows how many takes it took to get that out of him, but surely they could've propped him up enough to do a small fan service part.

Disney make their box office prediction yet?

I guess it'll easily make at least $1.5 billion.

re: Lando - I'd hoped he would make an appearance kinda like Jon Voight's character in Heat. Not a key player, but an underground aging gangster who would facilitate some info for the heroes or something like that. Would have been cool to see him in some role like that.

We all wanted to see an aging Lando sipping on Colt 45 and smacking some Twi'lek ass.

They usually won't comment. Right now, it's projected at $200 million domestically opening weekend, but they are saying that will only rise as it gets close to opening.

I don't know how to embed IG posts on here but Rian Johnson posted a pic yesterday with the caption, "Commentary track time". Hopefully that means we get it on the first release unlike with TFA.

IMDB ranks the Holiday Special at 2.3/10?? It is that bad? Or just troll votes?

You mean the Star Wars Holiday Special from 1978? i'm not sure why you posted this in the Last Jedi thread, but yes, it really is that bad:
https://forum.dvdtalk.com/movie-talk...y-special.html

It's not that hard to find, there's two copies posted on Youtube right now, so you can see for yourself, but it's an almost uniformly reviled show, even by its creators:

Rifftrax has a version of it that's very funny:

Ah, OK. Back to Last Jedi.

Any favorite Last Jedi TV spot? The International TV spot looked good.

I kinda wish I didn't watch this featurette. There's a potentially massive spoiler if you know where to look.

Spoiler:

Watching the fb live Q&A earlier was fun.

Iíve been avoiding them since the TV spot airing during The World Series. It was really good but the floodgates seemed to open on spoiler shots from Disney.

The good thing is all the Late Night interviews with Hamill, Ridley, Boyega, etc donít spoil anything because they are not allowed to say a word about the movie.

There's a couple actually:

Spoiler:

- at some point you see Daisy handling a GREEN lightsaber. Then again maybe that's just for training. But so far all BTS footage shows the color of the prop is the same lightsaber color as the movie.
- It shows Adam Driver fighting off multiple people at once. All this time the big showdown has been rumored to be Rey/Luke vs. Knights of Ren. I know think there's an even bigger showdown towards the end of the movie with ReyLo vs. Praetorian guards.


But that's just me.

Why do people actively look to have the movie spoiled? I don't get not wanting the movie to unfold and surprise you.
