"Force Awakens" Reviews Begin Dec 16th

1 Comment

Disney and Lucasfilm's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" opens around much of the world on Thursday December 17th and Friday December 18th. So far there's been no early press screenings beyond a nine minute IMAX reel played for select press over the past few weeks.

This means the first screening outside the studio will be the Los Angeles world premiere on the night of Monday December 14th. Press in attendance at both this and the scant few other early media screenings there are around the world before release are under a global embargo on reviews. Said embargo is reportedly scheduled to lift at midnight US-PST on December 16th.

For those hoping to avoid any spoilers in regards to the film, you won't have to worry about the lure of reviews until Wednesday this coming week. That said, this coming Tuesday the 15th may prove a hazard as non-press in attendance at the L.A. premiere are perfectly free to talk about their reaction to the film on social media following its wrap at around 9:45pm US-PST on Monday the 14th.

Beyond the Bricks… the best video you’ll watch all week

Just in case you weren’t already stoked to see The Lego Movie (and if you aren’t… what’s wrong with you?), Lego went and released a trailer that should just make your Friday. My personal highlight was “Ha! First Try” after a batarang throw… what was yours?

With pre-production in full-swing, a confirmed release date of December 18, 2015, has been set for Lucasfilm's highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII.

"We're very excited to share the official 2015 release date for Star Wars: Episode VII, where it will not only anchor the popular holiday filmgoing season but also ensure our extraordinary filmmaking team has the time needed to deliver a sensational picture," said Alan Horn, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios.

Star Wars: Episode VII will be directed by J.J. Abrams (Super 8, Mission: Impossible III, Star Trek) and is being scripted by Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan (Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi). Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, with Tommy Harper (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Jack Ryan, Star Trek Into Darkness) and Jason McGatlin (Tintin, War of the Worlds) serving as executive producers. John Williams is returning to score Star Wars: Episode VII.

Shooting is scheduled to begin spring 2014 at Pinewood Studios.
