Nerd News | Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer

Tuesday, October 20

In case you missed it, a new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released last night.

Full disclosure: I haven't watched it yet. I spent much of last night trying to get tickets for the actual movie—long story short, we ended up driving down to the theater to buy them there—and missed the TV premiere. That doesn't really explain me not watching it the second I got home, though ...

I used to love watching movie trailers. And, to a certain extent, I still do. What I don't love is the recent movement toward having teasers for teasers, and teasers, and teasers for trailers, and trailers, and TV spots, and special reveals ... the list goes on. I go to the movies to be surprised and delighted, and I really don't want to see everything there is to see before I am actually there.

Maybe I'm just getting crotchety in my old age? Regardless, I had to blog about it. If I didn't, I'd feel like I was letting myself (and the few of you who might not have seen it and want to watch it) down. I mean, this is a pretty momentous event in Nerd History.

Also of note:

1 Thanks, Colt!
