Be among the fortunate few to see “Star Wars: Force Awakens” trailer this Friday

Emperor PalpatineTalk about Black Friday…

In a move that only Emperor Palpatine would condone, of the hundreds of movie theaters around the country, just nine Regal theaters get to show the long, long, long-awaited trailer for “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.” Those theaters are…

Star Wars - The Force AwakensIrvine, CA – Edwards Irvine Spectrum 22 & IMAX

San Diego, CA – Edwards Mira Mesa Stadium 18 IMAX & Rpx

Atlanta, Ga – Regal Atlantic Station Stadium 18 IMAX & Rpx

Chicago, Ill – Regal City North Stadium 14 IMAX & Rpx

New York, NY – Regal Union Square Stadium 14

Warrington, Pa – Regal Warrington Crossing Stadium 22 & IMAX

Knoxville, Tn – Regal Pinnacle Stadium 18 IMAX & Rpx

Houston, TX – Edwards Houston Marq’E Stadium 23 IMAX & Rpx

Seattle, Wa – Regal Thornton Place Stadium 14 & IMAX

Googling how far Warrington, Pa. is from me…. and placing odds on how long it’ll take some heroic rebel to get this trailer on line for the rest of the world to see.

Princess Leia hologram you're my only hopeThis is kind of a lame move here and again, reiterates why Marvel Studios is the top company in the fan’s eyes now. When “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” trailer leaked days before the scheduled Oct. 28 release, Marvel wasted little time getting an HD version up for everyone, but this goofy approach is silly considering our viral world these days. Hopefully, everyone will get to see it before the end of the weekend.

Help me trailer bootleggers, you’re our only hope.
