    I think this might be a tad misleading. I think it will screen for critics, but just not the organizations way early.

    This can't be true right? They have to show critics to review the movie. For one, is opening the 16th and 17th on some countries, spoilers would be everyone on social media before it opens here.
    If Disney is so "concerned" about spoilers, they should open the movie the same day everywhere. I think this whole secrecy thing is stupid. If critics don't get to review this, I would be worried.
    Is just a movie.

    If that's the case, the mods can change the thread title.

    I'm not concerned because this is Star Wars. The name brand alone is gonna sell tickets even if the movie sucks just as bad as I or II, so I wouldn't expect them to bar critics from seeing it because they're worried about the quality.

    Especially when Disney was fine letting critics screen stinkers like Thor 2.

    Oh, I don't know. But all I saw mentioned were the big critic meet ups that they usually do at the end of the year. JJ isn't showing many people the movie 3 weeks early.

    Yeah this is misleading. It is for the groups, and associations. So to me if I’m reading it correctly they don’t care if it does not get an Oscar.

    But regardless them waiting as long as they can does not spell doom. This is JJ he likes as much secrecy as possible. Trust me Disney is behind this film 100%.

    Someone should tell them that the plot's been online for almost a year.

    WELP we know what this means. Sounds like we've got another PLUTO NASH on our hands.

    Thanks a lot, Abrams.

    And people who would rather wait and see the movie instead of spoiling the whole thing early appreciate that the screenings will be limited so there's somewhat less of chance that some jackass will spoil the whole thing early because they saw a screening.

    Not like it really matters. Even though this is being done to prevent spoilers, Star Wars is critic proof anyway.

    This.

    Websites are notorious for putting spoilers in article headlines and on front pages. Its needlessly stupid, selfish, and mean. They do it to get more page views and clicks. So if this keeps that **** from happening then good.

    Critics won't be able to spoil, it but you can bet the people in other countries who are getting it a few days early will.

    The minute the first screening lets out every spoiler will be all over the internet - that is, if people aren't live-tweeting spoilers during the movie. By the end of the day every detail of the film will be online.

    If they're concerned about spoilers, why are they releasing the movie earlier in some countries than others?

    The day before Star Wars goes on its earliest general release date, I'll be retiring from the Internet until I get to see it for myself.

    I don't want some jackass online ruining my experience.

    Good idea. There won't be any safe place online, even in the most innocent looking, unrelated message thread. The spoiler jerks will be everywhere!

    So I read the AFI changed the deadline dates from December 7th to December 16th to allow The Force Awakens into consideration. Originally Disney wasn't going to screen it to them that early, for fear of leaking huge spoilers.
