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…
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.
This 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.
