    Recent Star Wars related guests include J.J. Abrams and Adam Driver. J.J. is a friend of The Show and Driver is a nobody celeb. Star Wars doesn't need this type of promotion, the massive anticipation and hype has been building for some time now.

    This type of movie promotion usually hits The Show when the testing and reviews have been bad.

    This is just '99 all over again. Movie is going to break every record, but its going to suck. There was just as much excitement and hype for Phantom Menace, and the trailers for that looked good.

    The only way you'll like the movie is if you love lens flares and CGI that won't hold up to the test of time.

    It can't be worse than the new Point Break. Their trailer looks awful.

    It wouldn't be shocking if it sucked. The last 3 are downright awful yet the hype for this one is over the top.

    They're trying for the larest opening ever, and then largest gross ever. Not to mention building the hype for retail sales at Xmas.

    Promotion isn't solely done to tell people about your movie. Disney is all about synergy. It's one of Iger's favorite words.

    Let's be honest.... all the star wars movies were overrated. The first three were decent but not great movies.

    1) i hope the movie tanks hard. i hate Star Wars and have hated seeing all this incessant promotion the last few weeks.
    2) this thread is worthless without pix of Daisy Ridley, the girl mentioned a few posts back.

    Just looked her up...she's average at best. I'll gladly take this Star Wars star circa late 70s over her any day regardless of the fact that she is now a total seething cunt.

    I'm a huge fan and will see it in IMAX opening weekend. I doubt actual tickets sales will exceeds the first one.
