Friday morning, 30 theaters in North America began playing the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer in front of every single showing of every single movie on the schedule. Peter Sciretta, Russ Fischer and I all wanted to see the trailer for the first time on the big screen, as it was meant to be seen. We bought tickets to the absolute first showing in Los Angeles: a 7:00 a.m. showing at Disney’s flagship theater, the El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. We were among the first on the West Coast to see the first footage from the first new live-action Star Wars movie in almost a decade.
After years of anticipation, speculation and excitement, what did we think of finally seeing the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer? Watch our Force Awakens trailer reaction video blog below and listen to us geek out over the first 88-second teaser trailer. Read More »

Universal Pictures gave fans a nice little holiday gift Tuesday with the early release of the Jurassic World trailer. It was the first big look at what director Colin Trevorrow has in store for the iconic Steven Spielberg/Michael Crichton franchise. The answer is the fulfillment of John Hammond’s dream: a dinosaur theme park where no expense is spared. However, after years, things are getting a bit stale. So the Jurassic World scientists create a new dinosaur. And we know that’s a big no-no.
As expected, reactions to the Jurassic World trailer ran the gamut from wide-eyed wonder to eye-rollingly dumb. People in the latter camp cited some of the new ways dinosaurs are being used at the park as an argument, as well as some of the computer generated effects.
