I hope Rey turns a sith at the end.

Give us something different than the usual good guys always win narrative.

Except that lightsaber is dumb AF.

There's some serious nostalgia baiting going on in that trailer. I honestly doubt it'll be any good though, the characters and plots of the lase few movies were so confused and hamfisted I can't see them fixing it time, my guess is that it's gonna be another confused mess and they'll keep nostalgia baiting to convince people to go see it, none of these disney movies stand on their own merits.

I thought it was a fake trailer. 1:30 of old scenes and 30 seconds of new scenes that IMO looked pretty bad. And yes, that stupid light saber at the end really sealed my opinion to not see this.

But in other news, the Mandalorian is something that I would watch.

Whenever they play the nostalgia cards it's usually because there isn't much else..

I do trust JJ to make a good movie tho. Hopefully he can salvage whatever wasnt f*cked in the last one.

JJ makes great stand alone movies, but he didnt do well with star trek, and Star wars is mixed reviews. I personally didnt like Force awakens (it was pretty much a recycled a new hope). The last Jedi was better, but still didnt really stand out to me. Maybe this one will be better, but everyone is right so far, that preview and light saber are awful...

Wow, most of it is old footage from old Star Wars... Translation? It sucks. And seeing Kathleen Kennedy still has her job I can absolutely be 100% sure it will suck.

But the real tell is the old footage which is most of the trailer.

The new movies are so disappointing that they only way they can assure their billion dollar boondoggle is by trying to hook the new with the old, to fool folks like me who gave up on Star Wars four movies ago.

I won't give it a dime.

PS: I'm guessing the "Dark Rey" snippet is again, nothing but some stupid dream Rey has ... they cut the scene into the trailer so everyone can get worked up about and go into the film with a sense of intrigue, when like the rest of the movies, there is no intrigue so just make shit up... I expect the film to follow the same tropes, the same political narratives, and the same mindless "science impossible" mistakes... like Bombs dropping in space and "we can't catch up with the lead ship" BS.


However, one movie that looks interesting though is Ad Astra...

I think Ad Astra is either going to really great or really awful. It feels like another Interstellar, which was great (and in my top 10). I feel like it will be great though, as Hollywood has been doing really well with science fiction lately.

This makes absolutely no sense. Why even put out a trailer this way. I can understand a few scenes, but to make most of the trailer old scenes? Out of the 2:11 trailer, 44 seconds was new footage.

Maybe the new movie is sooooo good that they can't afford to show you any of the other scenes!

I'd love to see this flop so hard. They made excuses when Solo flopped because it was a stand-alone movie. Let's see what they say about this one.

Yes, it's been generally regarded as one of the worst endings to a series... that is before GOT came along.

"The last time a TV finale spawned backlash this strong, in volume and sheer force of opinion, was nine years ago when Lost ended. There are a lot of similarities between the two shows in terms of what’s driving the complaints, specifically frustrations with holes in logic and/or unanswered questions. "

I didnt watch GOT, but I was fairly Happy with Lost. They even brought back the original cast. I would say the worst ending ever was Dexter. I was actually angry...

Still, don't know what the new trilogy is all about... Started off good with The Force Awakens, but completely shat the bed with The Last Jedi.. and from the trailers, this last movie looks even worse.

Personally think all of the new movies suck. So much wrong with the force awakens. I dont care about any of the things that happen or get emotionally invested in any of the characters. Its all blah

The only thing I'm looking forward to is Red letter media review and commentary lol.

Everything else is just a bit sad. Especially the sheep that actually eat this stuff up.

I enjoyed the last Jedi far more than the Force awakens, but both were still good overall. I think peoples expectations were too high. You couldnt possibly duplicate the original trilogy. There is so much emotion attached to it. Not even George Lucas could do it with the prequel series.

I totally agree with you. I enjoyed Episodes 7 and 8. And can't wait for 9.

I just don't have the high expectations that others seem to have.

It's like the Matrix. I loved 1. Enjoyed 2. And tolerated 3.

But, I still can't wait to see #4.

I'm looking forward to what the Wachowski siblings come up with.

But, at the same time, I'm not expecting Matrix 4 to be anywhere near as good as #1.

I'm not even expecting #4 to be anywhere near as good as any of the three John Wick movies.
