I was thinking that I might skip the trailer but then I thought, what's the point? It's gonna be unavoidable on social media and YouTube thumbnails, and play in front of other movies at the cinema.

It didn't feel like it spoiled much. Gives more of idea on what the story's about compared to the other one, and the only real potential spoilery material looks deliberately misleading.

Thanks for the analysis, UrL! It makes me a lot less concerned about the few seconds of video I'll unavoidably see here and there or the odd semi-spoiler comment I'll come across in the runup to the madness. smile I managed to avoid all but a few glimpses of the Rogue One trailers.

Just how insane do you expect opening week to be in Adelaide? Do you enjoy being part of the insanity or do you plan to let things cool down a couple of weeks before seeing it?

Avoiding the trailer? Talk about hating happiness and joy. frown

hahaha tongue

I prefer to rein in my desires and pass on immediate gratification, the better to experience and savor a much more intense joy and happiness later smile

Just join past you with future you or something.  Whatever you're trying to do, just alter time I guess, or alter time in you, or alter you in time.  Something.

Well, I almost always watch a new movie on its opening weekend, but normally I'll go around noon where its less popular. I believe I did that for Rogue One, however I don't think I did for TFA.

My local cinema isn't particularly massive so there's not much of a worry for seats running out.

And I do love being part of the insanity. I didn't think TFA was fantastic (though I certainly enjoyed it quite a lot) but the hype and atmosphere building up to it was magical. I doubt TLJ will match that

A book was published earlier this month titled Star Wars: From A Certain Point of View. It's a collection of 40 short stories, all written by different authors & all set during/around the time of A New Hope (40 years since the film was released, hence 40 stories)

Have to say, I'm really enjoying it. Not sure if it's canon or not, but there's some real interesting tales in it. I have 10 stories left to read, but so far the best one has to be "The Kloo Horn Cantina Caper" by Kelly Sue DeConnick & Matt Fraction, which basically tells the tale leading up to how all of these characters:



end up in that spot in the film. Entertaining as hell! Highly recommend.

Rian Johnson, Writer-Director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, to Create All-New Star Wars Trilogy

Quote
As writer-director of The Last Jedi, Johnson conceived and realized a powerful film of which Lucasfilm and Disney are immensely proud. In shepherding this new trilogy, which is separate from the episodic Skywalker saga, Johnson will introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored.

The angle I read in Danish media was that Disney has had some bad years - financially - and apparently Star Wars is now their only major source of income.  So expect Star Wars movies from hereon until we're all dead.

Live long and prosper, my ass.
