So, we have a title of the next Star Wars movie! It is simple, straightforward. I expected a more intriguing title, especially since it is the middle film of this trilogy.

Apart from the returning cast, the announced new members of the ensemble are Benicio del Toro & Laura Dern.

Here is a screenshot I've taken of the opening scroll of The Force Awakens from my copy of the movie. That blue box was drawn by me ;)

Of course, why would they not want to emulate posters from one of the most disappointing sequels ever made?

This is the sequel I was referring to.

Hahaha nice catch Shariq, that is just plain absurd to copy them blatantly.

These posters are absurdly lacking in originality. Terrible choice really for such a big release.

Trailer 2!


I'm a little underwhelmed by it. It looks good, of course... but the EPICness of the trailers from Ep VII is missing. The only shot that gave me that feel was when we saw the lined up AT-ATs.
But I'm excited and pumped. December 14th. Our personal DIFF closure. Yes!

Saw the trailer again and its rather tepid. The sense of excitement that we first felt when these films were announced isn't translating here, but this could be nothing more than the studio rightfully thinking, we don't have to sell this film too hard. I hope I am right because Johnson can be a bit hit and miss...(i.e. Looper vs. Everything else he's done)
