The Argument for Skipping the New ‘Star Wars’ Trailer
Consider this a trailer for the teaser for the trailer
Important: tickets for Star Wars: The Last Jedi go on sale right after the full trailer debuts Monday night during the Bears/Vikings game on ESPN.
The latest sequel, directed by Rian Johnson (Looper), opens on December 15th. Cool.
Somewhat important: Johnson doesn’t necessarily want you to see that trailer, claiming it gives away too much — which movie studios claim the people want. We don’t.
I a legitimately torn. If you want to come in clean, absolutely avoid it.
But it’s gooooood….. https://t.co/Y29K5yz8i4

Not important: there’s also a teaser trailer — well, actually teaser trailers, plural — for the trailer out now (“Breathe … just breathe.”), which shows you nothing.
Unlike the actual trailer, which apparently shows everything.

Advice: Put down your phone, go outside. And breathe.
Use The Force if necessary.
