I'm a lot more in the dark about this film too. Not by choice tho. It just seems like leaks haven't been as informative this time around. And with TFA we knew there was a superweapon so we all could easily guess what the climax would be. This film's third act is a big fat mystery. Much of the film is a big fat mystery for that matter.

Yeah I don't have much idea of where they'll go with TLJ.

Yep, right there with you Marv. There is one thing I really want to know. Wish they'd spoil that.

How do you know they won't? Marvel shows its films to audiences. But they are secret.

Marvel isn't Star Wars. They showed TFA internally. Was there test for it?

To be honest, the less I know about TLJ, the better. I want to be completely surprised when I go to the cinema.

At the same time, I am very afraid of purposely look into spoilers before going to see the film (knowing myself)

Is it bad I'm hoping to be pleasantly surprised by TLJ, but I'm worried it'll be worse than TFA?

Just read Star Wars#36 on Kindle or Die Hard with R2D2

Why can't I have more Star Wars as good as that?

Same boat here. I'll try to stay away from everything but the next trailer and a couple of interviews, but... SW is too hard to stay away from. We'll see.

The only thing I'd wish they'd tell us ahead of time is if Luke lights up ol' green. But they won't tell us that, understandably.

Darth,

You do realise that we haven't got a 2nd trailer yet and the marketing for the film is very worrying? LF clearly aren't confident with the film.

I mean, look at Rian's recent tweet. The film was just recently completely finished despite having started shooting in February 2016! Clearly a rushed production, spanning JUST 19 months.....

Yeah I think TFA was only screened for a group of friends, family, and people inside the movie business. No online bloggers or random people off the street.

I'm kind of in the same boat. When I got home from seeing TFA I was excited to see where the story went and I hoped and thought that the trilogy would only go up in terms of quality. Unfortunately two years later nothing I've seen in relation to TLJ has really thrilled me, it actually looks like a step down in my opinion.

Grootster given a chance to tell us he doesn't like TFA and thinks TLJ looks like trash? Who can pass on that.

I don't believe that for a second. Since when are studios incapable of lying about this?

I don't think that they screened TFA to general audiences. Sounds like J.J. to me, he loves the secrecy.

You don't believe what, they didn't test it? Which Star Wars films have been tested for audiences?

Yeah, they didn't test TFA. I remember some bloggers worrying about it because of no early test or press screenings. Nolan doesn't do test screenings either.

Oh damn. I'm worried about TDK now.

Keep in mind that you have to take stuff that these filmmakers and especially the studios say with a grain of salt. I'm sure they tested TFA with audiences whether they admit to it or not. Also keep in mind that JJ Abrams is known to straight up lie to his fans.

Yeah, I don't take anything they say too seriously.

If they tested with general audiences it would have gotten out. General audience test screenings aren't above top secret affairs. Sometimes audiences arent told which film they will watching but they are allowed to say they went to a test screening for the film. Someone would have told someone and it would have gotten around. Especially by now. And Disney didnt hide their internal screenings so why would they hide general audience screenings? And no you don't have to take stuff like this with a grain of salt. Studios and crew are vague and misdirect when they are asked story questions or cast questions or anything that might reveal major story details. They have zero reason to lie about whether they did general audience test screenings. Saying they did general audience test screenings reveals **** all about the film. And JJ Abrams lies to avoid spoiling a story. He has no reason to lie about whether his film had general audience test screenings.

Oh Marv, that doesn't fit the narrative. You know that. Grootster also knows everything when it comes to the release of these movies, which is why he brings fake rumors about trailers here, while some of us can simply guess and somehow know when things are going to come out.

Also, what did JJ lie about with TFA?

I don't think he had to outright lie about anything in TFA. The most egregious lie he has ever told was the Harrison nonsense before STID was released but he didnt do anything like that for TFA.

I'm sure they did ones so top secret we haven't heard about a single one in two films. Not one person went on reddit and leaked details or just mentioned they did months after release. Everyone just kept it to themselves. Makes perfect sense.

Yep. Which he clearly learned from. It is why no one could say anything about TFA. Not lying, just not saying anything.
