UPDATE 5! J.J. Abrams Confirms 88 Second The Force Awakens Trailer for Friday, November 28!!! Complete List of All 30 Theaters Showing the Teaser.
According to the Regal Entertainment Group’s official website The Force Awakens trailer is being exclusively released this Friday!
This Friday, the world premiere of Star Wars Episode VII trailer will be revealed at select North America theatres.
Be one of the first to experience the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens at the following Regal locations. The trailer will debut before all movies starting November 28 – November 30.
This is legit as it comes from an official source and corroborates some rumors we’ve been hearing lately. This is the first time in this Blogger’s life that an official announcement has come from a theater ABOUT A TEASER TRAILER! Amazing! This is just a small symbol of the power of Star Wars.
Here’s where you can see it.
State City Theatre Name
CA Irvine Edwards Irvine Spectrum 22 & IMAX
CA San Diego Edwards Mira Mesa Stadium 18 IMAX & RPX
GA Atlanta Regal Atlantic Station Stadium 18 IMAX & RPX
IL Chicago Regal City North Stadium 14 IMAX & RPX
NY New York Regal Union Square Stadium 14
PA Warrington Regal Warrington Crossing Stadium 22 & IMAX
TN Knoxville Regal Pinnacle Stadium 18 IMAX & RPX
TX Houston Edwards Houston Marq’E Stadium 23 IMAX & RPX
WA Seattle Regal Thornton Place Stadium 14 & IMAX
It’s a little confounding that the teaser will only be available to people living in 9 regions, but the trailer is set to appear before ALL movies shown for two days. One has to presume that there are more releases of the trailer coming up to reach a more massive audience. Stay tuned as we discover more details.
A very BIG thanks goes out to our Cantina member TIDMADT for the heads-up!
Well it looks Regal jumped the gun. They removed the posts on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and their main page. Still their report can be found via the direct url. I guess this could mean an official Disney announcement is imminent?
Regal have now removed their tweet and Facebook post about the Star Wars trailer. Someone jumped the gun! (it’s obviously happening though)

And now a post by J.J. Abrams himself confirming that the trailer will be 88 seconds.
ILM has also posted a tweet regarding the new teaser trailer. At least they gave a hint that there are more “details to come”.
This Friday in select theaters – A tiny peek at what we’re working on for “#StarWars The Force Awakens” – Details to come.

Releasing the most anticipated trailer of the last decade in only 100 US theaters doesn’t make much sense. There has to be an official online worldwide release posted at the same time on Friday or on Thursday night on Thanksgiving Day. Otherwise the internet will be flooded with bootleg versions of the trailer first thing in the morning. And that’s surely something that Disney is trying to avoid. They still have the bitter taste from the Age of Ultron trailer, so I hope they won’t repeat the same mistake.
AMC & Cinemark Theaters joined the party. (via /Film)
