Tonight is the Hollywood premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s a big f-cking deal. Not like they don’t normally close off streets etc but this time it’s extra extra. Like with bleachers etc so that the event more resembles the Oscars at Hollywood and Highland instead of a standard premiere. Full Story

Haven’t seen too much of Oscar Isaac on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens press tour as Daisy Ridley and John Boyega have been front and centre so far and we’ve seen Lupita out there too. But with so many foreign markets, and with the foreign markets so important to the box office, they’ve split up the promotional destinations. Full Story

Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, and JJ Abrams were in Seoul today promoting Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Um, you guys, we are just a week away. A WEEK AWAY. I’m not sure Sarah is going to sleep this weekend. I like that this is the Star Wars A Team going out for the new generation. Full Story

Wait. Did I miss a “new” in that? Sarah calls it New New Star Wars. But I never think of it that way because I never remember the first new Star Wars. And it’s not like I never watched those movies because I did. But if you were to ask me what they were about? No idea. It’s December 2015. Full Story

Sarah is American and I feel bad asking her to write a Star Wars post on her Thanksgiving break so you’re stuck with me for this Star Wars article. Another TV spot was released yesterday. At first I was like, Jesus, does Star Wars really need to build all this anticipation? EVERYONE is going to see Star Wars. Full Story

Lainey set me up yesterday to talk about the New New Star Wars TV spot with Lupita Nyong’o’s voice making leading statements about “eyes”. You can see the spot here Full Story

After the full trailer was released last month, we weren’t supposed to get any more trailers for New New Star Wars. The JJ Abrams School of SECRETY SECRETS is in full effect and it seemed like we’d seen all we were going to see until the movie opens on December 18. Full Story

New New Star Wars has no right eyes

Character posters for Star Wars: The Force Awakens were released yesterday, featuring Han Solo and Princess Leia, plus John Boyega’s Finn, Daisy Ridley’s Rey, and Adam Driver’s bad guy, Kylo Ren. For some reason, they all have their right eyes obscured. The Force hates righties? Also apparently the Force hates Luke Skywalker because he has once again been omitted from the marketing materials—it’s almost like they’re saving Luke for a big mid-movie reveal or something. Full Story

Star Wars broke the internet

After a long-ass delay, the final Star Wars Episode VII trailer arrived last night, plunked in the middle of Monday Night Football, just to ensure that Disney got ALL the attention and money. Why the delay? The JJ Abrams School of SECRETY SECRETS makes already strict security measures a living nightmare, but there’s also a time crunch on, as they barrel closer to that December 18th release date. Full Story
