    Looks like you have to have an 02 phone to qualify. My work phone is 02 but not sure I should use it. I strongly suspect the locations are going to be a few hours drive for me… I think I’ll wait the extra 3 days- I’ve booked the day off and if I’m as lucky as when I saw VII the first time, I’ll get a lunchtime screening in a theatre with only about 20 other viewers. I dislike packed cinemas. It’s impossible to not sit near some jabba-esque git nosily eating an extra massive tub of popcorn and noisily slurping on a coke which of course being the cinema, is mostly ice.

    Any word on the actual production? Is the edit finished? Is the score/FX coming along?

    • November 16, 2016 at 3:20 pm

      It will be finished by release date.

      • November 16, 2016 at 5:19 pm

        I’m sure it will. I was just curious as to how things were going. It seems they’ve patched most or all of the info leaks.

        • November 16, 2016 at 6:43 pm

          I know, it’s just, if they had that kind of information, there would be a post about it.

          I for one am glad they clogged the leaks.

          • November 16, 2016 at 8:31 pm

            I’m glad and not glad. 🙂

    and the tickets?

    December 14 midnight hre in Czech and Slovakia. But I´m not sure if I go this time, it starts after 30 minutes and I am getting old and pretty tired. And not that excited as I would be with the episodes…

    That they’re allowing advanced screenings may indicate they’re confident & happy with the movie. Studios don’t like early word getting out if they think they have a dud on their hands.

  • November 16, 2016 at 6:02 pm

    For anyone wondering, the screenings are in; Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, London, Manchester and Sheffield.

    Episode 7 looked so retro that it looked like a Matrix 3 film, no beautiful scenery, no cities, no futuristic customes, no futuristics droids. I mean they looked all dirty and scenes from a backyard of Florida. I am 100% sure, that this movie will be the same thing!!! It seems that Disney dont want to put money on scenery and production!!!!

      Well, except for “Might-as-Well-Be-Coruscant-But-Totally-Isn’t-Coruscant”. I think you’ve missed something though – TFA wasn’t made on the cheap by any means, that’s not why it looks like that. It seems pretty obvious that the approach was more about trying to evoke the used, dirty universe of the OT, and steer the ship away from the more polished look of the PT. You can argue that decision all you want, but given the film’s budget, “not wanting to put money on scenery and production” isn’t a real complaint.

      “no beautiful scenery, no cities, no futuristic customes, no futuristics droids. I mean they looked all dirty and scenes from a backyard of Florida”

      You just described the entire Original Trilogy perfectly.

        We are not in the 1970s anymore!!!! The job of an artist like George Lucas was to create a different painting in every episode with a line connection! What Disney is doing is just recycling what George Lucas did in the past! What is the whole point of doing this?MONEY!!!!!

        • November 17, 2016 at 4:02 am

          In fact, yes it is. If Star Wars didn’t make money, there wouldn’t be new Star Wars films. Or merchandise. Books. Comics. Animated series.

          Crazy, I know. But if an artist doesn’t make money, they starve.

        • November 17, 2016 at 4:09 am

          The whole point of any movie is money. Your point?

        • November 17, 2016 at 8:01 am

          Have you seen any of the ILM FX reels for TFA?

    This…this is a GOOD thing isn’t it? I mean, I would think if the studio wasn’t feeling confident about the film we wouldn’t be seeing advance screenings that close to release. Hoping for a quick boost to opening week numbers from WoM here?

    • November 17, 2016 at 4:01 am

      Far be it for you to point out something positive coming from Lucas Film.
