In case you missed the news over the weekend, the official poster for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was revealed along with news that the new trailer will drop tonight during Monday Night Football with tickets going on sale right after the launch.
Don’t care about sportsball? The trailer will drop at halftime. But I encourage you to stick around and experience what it’s like for me (a huge fan) to watch the Giants. Will they find a way to screw things up in the fourth quarter? Probably!
About that poster: Is that a new Death Star-esque superweapon? Where the hell is Luke? I’m sure we’ll find out more tonight.
But that’s not all!
Fandango just set up their official landing page for an epic movie marathon in select theaters that will feature all seven movies in the Star Wars series.
The 15.5 hours of space drama (not including intermissions) appears to start on December 17th. StarWars.com has unveiled the participating theaters along with a series of exclusives that will be available at additional theaters around the country.
Check out the full poster after the break along with a press release that includes additional details. UPDATE: Now with
two three teasers for the teaser!
