A LESS LONG TIME AGO, IN A GALAXY FAR, FAR, AWAY: Want to see the first trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens? Rather than attaching it to a specific movie, it'll make its debut before all movies starting next Friday at 8 Regal theatres spread throughout the US. Of course, I fully expect this'll be little more than a teaser with a hint of new footage. Related--the Pitch Perfect 2 trailer is actually much more impressive in a big theatre with a multi-track sound system, where you can hear the effort that's gone into the arrangement and mixing of "Cups."
ETA: The trailer is apparently 88 seconds, per an adorable handwritten note from JJ Abrams posted on Twitter. As noted, it'll be attached to everything at those theatres, so you don't have to go see The Penguins of Madagascar unless you really want to.
