I'm gutted that we couldn't get IMAX for midnight, We'll be going at the weekend to see it again though with the eldest though so it wont be so bad.

Our cinema was doing a Force Awakens/The Last Jedi double screening which would have been ace.

There seems to be a real lack of hype around Episode VIII. It surely can't be franchise burnout as Marvel gets away with more than yearly releases.

Is it because generally people have changed opinion on Force Awakens? It doesn't feel like an Episode 1 style shift where after 2 months everyone hated it, but I get the impression that people aren't as complimentary about TFA as they were in 2015.

I'm hyped as gooseberry fool and I still love TFA. I just generally avoid discussion, trailers etc beforehand.

I can't avoid trailers. I love them. Get me really hyped for any film that im looking forward to. Plus I have such a bad memory that I forget most of what's in them anyway.

Yeah, with stuff like Star Wars I watch it once, get hyped, but don't go back and analyse etc. I can't remember that much from the Star Wars trailer really.

What I actively try to avoid is comedy trailers as they tend to ruin all the best punchlines.

I found TFA fairly underwhelming, although by the time I watched it it was months later and I'd had the main twists spoiled for me already so that probably didn't help. Just seemed far too close to ANH, crossed the line from homage to copycat. Plus Gwendoline Christie was criminally underused.
Definitely hyped for The Last Jedi though, looks like it could go in some interesting directions and it's great to have Mark Hamill back in action.

There's a new, short trailer doing the rounds marking eight days before The Last Jedi. Absolutely DO NOT watch it. It's the first time in the marketing drive they've undoubtedly shown too much

Star Wars Sithposting spoiled it for me, but in fairness it's vague/brief enough that it could still go down a number of ways and not necessarily mean what everyone is assuming it'll mean

It's still a pretty huge moment to spoil I think.

Oh yeah definitely, it's obviously going to be a pivotal moment I just meant that since we don't have the context we don't know why it's pivotal so it's not entirely spoiled. Still would've preferred it to be left out, but I don't think it's as big a deal as certain hysterical people on Facebook are making out.

Sounds like Mads Mikkelsen kinda wants to do a pre-Rogue One Galen Erso movie:

Reflecting on the role, Rogue One actor Mads Mikkelsen told IGN Japan that he feels Galen still has unexplored depths.

“We don’t see him a lot (in Rogue One); we get a feel of him,” Mikkelsen said. “Obviously you could elaborate on a character like that for his own movie. The story (of Rogue One) is about his daughter, and for that reason he plays a sidekick in her life. If he had his own film it would be different.”

Mikkelsen, who also recently spoke about wanting to play Spider-Man and his role in Death Stranding, explained that the richness of the Star Wars universe allows scope for even more stories, and that he senses a particular interest in exploring day-to-day life for ordinary folk under the Empire.

“I think there’s an unlimited source to go back and tell those stories,” he said. “I think people are curious about the Empire as well, to see some back story on the Empire. What kind of people are they? (Galen’s) family, his wife and daughter, we were part of the Empire – and we’re not monsters. So obviously there are (regular) people in there. And why do they do what they do? What do they believe in?”

The Erso family's life looks like it was pretty well mapped out in the book Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel, but that book might make for the basis of a pretty good Average(ish) Joe family-level drama set against the backdrop of a tumultuous galactic war, regime change and hidden agendas, broken promises and family life, etc. It'd be pretty neat to see more of Krennic, as well, as his rise is also chronicled in the book.
