I love nights like this. Tonight, after months of waiting we have our theatrical trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The mood tonight was electric and could be felt pretty much everywhere. From the concourse of the Alamo Cinema Draft House here in Virginia to Star Wars Twitter, this glimpse into the next chapter of our saga has everyone buzzing. All that hype and pressure was blown away by the performance of Director Rian Johnson and his crew for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. A marvelous trailer for what will be an incredible film.
Director Rian Johnson took to the Twitter show “What’s Happening Now!” to showcase the last missing piece of the marketing package for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it’s poster. The poster which has Luke Skywalker predominately hovering above the main cast of characters in a red and white ensemble is nothing short of a masterpiece. The dichotomy between Rey on the left and Kylo on the right symbolizes the divide between each shade of the Force. What I love most about this poster is Leia, which given her position in the poster steals it for me. This just might be my favorite Star Wars movie poster outside those from the original trilogy.
