Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer 3 released in 4K and Music editions

The original "3rd" Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer (otherwise known as the first full-length trailer) has already garnered many millions of views in just over a day. Now Lucasfilm has decided to bestow upon us two new versions of the trailer - one without words, the other in full Ultra HD, aka glorious 4K resolution. These trailers show the same content as before - they're just better for one reason (far higher-definition) or the other (time to bask in the greatness of John Williams' score alone).

According to Alamo Drafthouse theater chain CEO Tim League, Star Wars The Force Awakens has created "the single biggest simultaneous surge for movie tickets our industry has ever seen."

"The Alamo Drafthouse has been preparing for this hugely important day for the past nine months," said League, "and we thought we were ready."

Is Boba Fett in Star Wars The Force Awakens? [UPDATE 2]

One of MANY Easter Eggs found in the new Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer released this week was a pair of banners bearing familiar imagery. One banner features the "Boba Fett Symbol" as some like to call it, another bears the "Boba Fett Wheat". These banners appear above the heads of Finn, Rey, BB-8, and Han Solo as they enter what we can only assume is the headquarters of some nefarious criminal organization. We might have already seen this organization's insides, too.

The first full trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been released to the public - not just a teaser, but a full, real-deal trailer this time. This trailer was released during a football game on ESPN during half-time - just about as strange a place as a Star Wars trailer has ever premiered.

Star Wars The Force Awakens pictures galore: rarities and big graphics

This week we've been provided with a new cache of Star Wars: The Force Awakens images, some of which we've never seen before, others which we've never seen this big before. What we're looking at here is what we understand to be a set of photos and designs designed at Lucasfilm and distributed through licensing channels for placement on officially licensed Star Wars products. You'll find some of these images on t-shirts in the near future, others on lunch boxes. Some you'll find in posters, others will appear on trading cards produced by Topps!

Star Wars 7 trailer coming on Monday night, right here

The first big Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer will be released on Monday night at right around 8PM EST says a number of anonymous sources. Multiple sources, that is to say, adding up to a rumor that's nearly as good as the real deal. In addition to the first big trailer for the movie appearing on Monday, there'll be an "official one sheet" - that's the main movie poster - for The Force Awakens on Sunday morning. These bits and pieces will be different from previous releases which, in turn, were teaser posters and teaser trailers - they don't count!
