[Updated] Here’s Where to See the Star Wars Episode VII Trailer That’s Definitely Coming Out This Week
Just like Luke's shot, it's one in a million.
UPDATE: More theater chains are confirming the teaser—scroll down to read on!
After a weekend full of speculation that the world premiere of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer would drop just in time for Thanksgiving, Regal Cinemas confirmed the rumors (and then quickly deleted the tweet for some reason, but their website appears to still be up); if you live near one of their (very) select theaters, you might get the chance to see the trailer before anyone else does.
Here’s the full list from the Regal Cinemas website:
- Edwards Irvine Spectrum 22 & IMAX, Irvine CA
- Edwards Mira Mesa Stadium 18 IMAX & RPX, San Diego CA
- Regal Atlantic Station Stadium 18 IMAX & RPX, Atlanta GA
- Regal City North Stadium 14 IMAX & RPX, Chicago IL
- Regal Union Square Stadium 14, New York NY
- Regal Warrington Crossing Stadium 22 & IMAX, Warrington PA
- Regal Pinnacle Stadium 18 IMAX & RPX, Knoxville TN
- Edwards Houston Marq’E Stadium 23 IMAX & RPX, Houston TX
- Regal Thornton Place Stadium 14 & IMAX, Seattle WA
Not very many theaters, but at least you won’t have to guess which film to see it at—according to Regal, the trailer will drop before every single movie screened between November 28th and November 30th. So if you live near one of these places and were one of those fans waiting to see Mockingjay Part One later in the month, now appears to be the time.
UPDATE [11:44pm ET]: Welp, somebody at Regal Cinemas is clearly in trouble for letting the news slip early—we’re guessing that other non-Regal theaters are also showing the trailer this weekend and there was a deliberate embargo in place that Regal jumped the gun on.
Their website now no longer lists the above theaters, but at least they’re having fun with it:
Those poor Bothans. We’ll keep updating when we hear more!
UPDATE [2:16pm ET]: JJ Abrams has now confirmed!
UPDATE [2:29pm ET]: Now AMC theaters are also confirming, with theater locations to come:
