The Force Awakens teaser will debut in ‘select theaters’ this weekend…

tfa-88secsPart of the weekend reports that The Force Awakens trailer would show up at select theaters have turned out to be true… And J.J. Abrams has confirmed that ‘select theaters’ will be involved, and that the teaser will be 88 seconds.

And now we have the list: 30 theaters in the U.S. and Canada.

The news broke this morning when Regal jumped the gun, announcing it’ll be at 9 of their theaters. Later, AMC and Cinemark said they’ll have it, too, and the full announcement had a few other chains as well.

The wording on is vague enough that they could they still surprise us with a TV or online debut… And I hope they do, because otherwise this is less ‘special’ than it is cruel.

  1. Wow, this will be just a 15 minute “T” rail ride away from my apartment in Boston and the stop will deposit me right in front of the theater… So, do I go on a frigid Friday morning or just wait for the inevitable leak and see it in the warmth and comfort of my home? Big life problems…

  2. I’m not sure what I’m more annoyed at: That it’ll only be in 30 cinemas (and only in the US and Canada) or that JJ Abrams seems able to draw a better explosion than me. Harrumph.

  3. Well, there’s still that theory that there are two versions of the trailer: A short one for online consumption and a longer one that will be screened only in theaters. I’d actually like that a lot. Would underline the whole “three reasons they build movie theaters” claim without screwing over the entire planet. ;)
