^ Gareth Edwards and someone else mentioned seeing them off the cuff or something. Got us all excited.

This almost makes me miss working at a theater way back in the day. Free posters. I have a bunch of RotS ones, including one of Darth Vader that says "Who's Your Daddy?" on it because of a Father's Day promotion

I didn't realize what an upheaval moving the scar on Kylo's face would cause... I guess I just don't see the big deal. Figured most SW fans would be use to adjustments at this point. Dealt with worse.

It's not so much we haven't dealt with worse before, it's more so "why do we have to keep dealing with this sort of thing time and time again?"

I personally thought it looked cooler where it was. But it's not like I really care about where the scar is.

Rian Johnson may have also tweaked the designs for Snoke and the Knights of Ren if certain rumors are to be believed.

I'm surprised Force Awakens didn't get a 4K release.

Disney still aren't doing them for some reason, which is great as most of the recent films I want to rewatch multiple times are Disney ones at the moment.

but Disney releases its current MCU films in 4K, don't they?

I seem to recall seeing Avengers 2 4K blu-rays at the store.

They've been around for years. A lot of people with anonymous sources. Making Star Wars kept hope alive that they'd be announced for the 40th anniversay. Nupe.

You were partially right. Concorde Video has released the Iron Man Trilogy in 4K in Germany. But those are the only ones and Disney wasn't involved. Based on reviews it's a pretty underwhelming 4k release. An upscale of an old 2K DI with some very questionable HDR presentation. I imported them out of curiosity but they haven't been delivered yet.

I must have mistaken what I thought were the MCU films in 4K for other films.

hope you get your imported DVDs.....lol.

I've been importing blu-rays for years from all over Europe and so far none have gotten lost. Usually takes between 1 -3 weeks depending on the country of origin. The biggest issue I've encountered is my bank flagging the international transactions, thinking my bank card has been stolen, and locking my bank card. That's a real PIA. Have to call the bank's 1-800 number and go through automated rerouting then have to verify it's me that made the purchase before they will unlock my card and allow the transactions.

It does suck and even if they did one for FA now I would most likely not even bother and just wait in till we get a episode 7-9 4k set or something. That brings up a question I was wondering. Do you think the Last jedi could be the first Disney movie to get a 4k bluray?

Yeah I'm thinking May/June more will be popping up. Mine should be to me in the next few weeks. I did not plan on getting another teaser poster. I planned on just having the teaser poster with the logo and the theatrical but it seems I'll be getting three for this film.The framing shop should really give me a deal for how many times I come in there.

4K only matters if you have the right hardware to show it in 4K.

I keep on seeing reports of Carrie doing some script doctoring on TLJ. I wonder if they will try to give her a script credit just as another way to honor her.

So, this happened--

Tweeter: They're just going to copy Empire. Nothing new here.
Rian: Greg is right actually, I've spent the last three years just copying Empire.
Tweeter: Nothing against Johnson. Its disney thats controlling everything
Rian: Hi Greg, this is Rian. I've actually had as much creative ownership as on any film I've done. Don't know if you'll like it, but it's me.
