Many Bothans died to bring you this information, but...It's Official! The very first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released on Black Friday.
However, not everyone will get a chance to see it.
The trailer for the latest Star Wars film will definitely hit theaters the day after Thanksgiving (coincidentally the first trailer for Jurassic World will also hit), but ONLY at nine preselected Regal Theaters around the United States and only during that weekend of November 28 to November 30.
Here are the nine theaters that will be showing the trailer:
Irvine, CA - Edwards Irvine Spectrum 22 & IMAX
San Diego, CA - Edwards Mira Mesa Stadium 18 IMAX & RPX
Atlanta, GA - Regal Atlantic Station Stadium 18 IMAX & RPX
Chicago, IL - 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
The good news is the trailer will be playing before every single movie showing that weekend. Unlike select movies when the first trailer for The Phantom Menace was released. Info has already been pulled from Regal's site. Luckily, sites like your friendly neighborhood Batcave Toy Room have the lowdown.
Still no word on when the trailer will get a full run at theaters every where, but we'll definitely be sharing soon as we hear.
How does everyone feel about this being in limited release? Anyone willing to make a trek to the closet theater to see it?
