There are some recent rumours that suggest the trailer for Episode VII: The Force Awakens is nearly upon us. With American Thanksgiving right around the corner it looks like we will finally have our first crack at the trailer. There appears to be a few ways that things can go down this weekend. The one being reported the most revolves around the trailer being shown in only 100 theatres, but it will play in front of every movie Thanksgiving weekend. Other rumours have them playing in conjunction with just the Big Hero 6 movie.
It does appear that Big Hero 6 may be the first movie to have the trailer attached to it for wide-release. It's a Disney movie, and although it's been out for a few weeks now, Thanksgiving weekend is huge for family audiences. Giving a Disney movie a little edge this weekend is probably a sound move, before having the trailer attached to non-Disney movies (like the last Hobbit film).
So, if you're planning to see a movie this weekend you may just get lucky enough to be one of the first to see the Star Wars trailer. Your best bet may be to catch Big Hero 6 as well, but I can't recommend the movie since I haven't seen it myself (although it appears to have gotten some solid reviews overall).
Some more information has been released. A movie theatre chain, Regal Cinemas, will be showing the trailer at 9 of their locations across the country. It will star Friday and play all weekend before each movie. So if you live near one of those theatres, then this weekend may be a good time to catch a movie!
