Midweek Movie Mouth Off: all aboard the hype train!

2 min read


Move over Kim K, something legitimately awesome broke the internet last week. After months of rumours, speculation, and leaks, the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released… and the crowd went wild!

Already we’ve over-analysed the trailer frame by frame, had a flood of trailer parodies and fan art, and, because it’s apparently never too soon, someone has gone and gotten a tattoo.

Now, I’m not saying that I’m not a Star Wars fan, but I’ve only watched the trailer once. Feel free to gasp in shock and outrage! Seriously though, when I’m excited about a movie I tend to shy away from getting too much information about it. I’m not afraid of spoilers as such, but I like to go into a cinema with fewer expectations.

Judging by what’s been happening on the internet since Friday, it looks like I might be alone in this opinion. So, everyone that’s on the hype train, I want to know why you decided to board. If you’ve watched the trailer on loop for the past couple of days, let me know your thoughts! And if you haven’t watched it all, and you’re brave enough to admit that, tell us why you’re keeping yourself in the dark.
