Now In Theaters: “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” (12/20/2019)

It almost feels like forever ago when I posted the FINAL TRAILER for “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” and while it was only in October, we’ve surely had a bevy of content related to the film to share with you all. Since then there have been Featurettes, TV Spots and Promotional Posters that you can examine at your leisure by clicking HERE. Now its time for the moment that you have all been waiting for since “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” opens today in theaters everywhere. As you know this was a journey that began some forty plus years ago in 1977 with “Star Wars: A New Hope” (before it even had a Roman numeral and chapter name). Today that film opens in theaters everywhere and I’d say to check your listings but you will likely be able to find a showing at every turn especially if you live in a big metropolis like we do. Below you’ll find the Official Theatrical Poster, premise and casting. Let’s review.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Needless to say I am super excited for this film but I didn’t manage to get myself tickets to any of the night-before screenings or day of showings since I will be finishing off my holiday preparation AND seeing the mighty Trans-Siberian Orchestra this weekend. My plan is to try to catch this film early on Christmas Day when I am hoping that most people will be traveling to see relatives. I won’t be doing anything until later on in the day unless something changes between now and then and I’ve done that before and enjoyed myself greatly. To those seeing it at some point this weekend or did so last night please NO SPOILERS since that really sucks and no one likes that stuff. You can chime in down below on whether you liked it or not and maybe say what film you enjoyed more. When I get around to the inevitable movie review, you are most welcome to chime in since by then all the ardent fans will have seen it. That’s all I have for now and as always I must close a post like this with “May The Force Be With You”…
