1 of 4! They had some awesome posters last time.

I hate that they're only for IMAX and only given on one specific day, though...

I dont think that Kylo is going to shot.
And something inside of me wants Rey to go darkside at the end of this movie. At least for now.

I really liked the ones Dan Mumford did for TFA. I'll probably try and get my hands on this as well, though there isn't an IMAX cinema near me.

The theatrical poster's better than I was expecting. Much better than TFA's.
I still have the Rey/BB-8 overlooking the star destroyer one as my background. Gunna change to this new one

Driver's my favourite actor out of the new cast and I liked Kylo a lot in TFA so I was pleasantly surprised he featured so heavily. Johnson's said how much he enjoys writing him and it shows.

Got me more hyped. He's the best villain we've had in a SW film to date.

I like Driver a lot as an actor but I just can't shake the feeling that he's woefully miscast here. Dude simply isn't intimidating.

Look I know Vader is the most iconic, but let's be real, he was a scary dude in a black mask for ANH and ESB, barely a character. Ben actually had an arc start for him in TFA that hopefully carries through.

I wouldn't say Kylo's intimidating in the same way as Vader - he's not really meant to be - but I can't think of anyone else I'd prefer in the role. He's intimidating when he's hunting down Rey on Takodana and when he interrogates her afterwards. But he also has the acting chops to sell the more emotional material like his scene with Han.

I love Driver as Kylo.

That fuckin' babyface is perfect in that it's almost a poodle puppy yearning to be a wolf. He shouldn't be, and ultimately can't but goddamn he's trying so hard for all the wrong reasons. He's the best character in this series so far and Driver is perfect for him.

So, what could be the big spoiler, that was hinted by Rian?

Rey getting tortured by Snoke?
That was pretty much the only big spoiler in the trailer

They really didn't reveal to much honestly. Entire locations were absent. Probably the second act of the film was MIA

If it was actually happening, and not a force vision.
I expect that they meet. She has a confrontation with Kyle, after beeing rejected by Luke, they befriend each other, because he offers her to learn more about the force, they go to Snoke, she gets seduced by the dark side, gets a bit force tortured, so that GAF can make a Return of the Jedi Remake comparison
and Episode IX remakes he Force Awakes

You don't need to spoiler tag speculation mate. I doubt there's anyone in here that hasn't watched the trailer anyway.

No idea. I got the days people yelling at me with talking about a certain Blade Runner discussion that is 30 years old, so I am right now even spoilertagging
that Luke is the son of Darth Vader
Cause there could be backwards people from the woods who never seen these most famous movies.

That's their problem, not yours. Goddamn spoiler culture.

This made me laugh.

That's hilarious, spoiler culture is so weird and oddly specific and ever-changing depending on the media.

I know, right? Its such a bullshit. I would never intentionally ruin a new movie for someone, or a movie that relys on a twist, unless its the movie in which Bruce Willis
is a ghost
, cause its the most famous twist right after
Lukes father beeing Darth Vader
, but at some point a movie is so old that its fine to talk open about it. I always wonder how these people converse with other people, if they jump out of the room when people talk about movies that are older then theyself.

Then again, its totally cool to talk about things like the
death of Aeris
in discussions about Final Fantasy.

The best was one guy, who wanted to completly without any information about 2049 into the movie and acted like I ruined the actual movie. No idea how big Deckards part in 2049 is, if the plot revolves
around him beeing a replicant or not
and I also dont want to know it, but it was hilarious seeing that guy ranting around.


Fuck that noise. I dont care. Your loss.

The best thing was, when I once said that the spaceship in Event Horizont
opens a gate to hell
and THIS IS PRINTED ON THE FUCKING BACKSIDE OF THE DVD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and everyone freaked out.
