Same here. I am purposely avoiding all trailer videos. I want to go in with no idea of what it's about. I did that with Rogue One and it made it a lot more enjoyable :)

Disney is requiring theaters to show The Last Jedi in their largest auditorium for a minimum of 4 weeks, and will receive about 65% of ticket-sales revenue. Violators will face an addition 5% sales charge.

small town and independent theaters suffer the most with these kinds of stipulations:
“There’s a finite number of moviegoers in my market, and I can service all of them in a couple of weeks,” said Lee Akin, who operates a single-screen theater in Elkader, Iowa (population: 1,213).
Toward the end of a monthlong run, Mr. Akin said he would be unable to swap in more popular titles and instead have to play “Last Jedi” to near-empty auditoriums—while still giving Disney 65% of those paltry sales. The studio is applying the 65% split across all weeks of the film’s release, rather than some studios’ practice of beginning a split at a high figure and then lowering it in subsequent weeks”

I could see this being the biggest movie for 4 weeks in a row. I bet Sheldon would have left it in the biggest theater regardless. That is a good point about a single theater in a small town though, after 2 weeks everyone who wants to see it in that town is going to see it. I guess in that case it might be worth looking into breaking the deal.

I consider myself a big fanboy. I was able to walk up Thursday night and buy a ticket for the 7 o'clock show at Southridge theater. I scheduled Friday off so I could see it again. Here is my review:

I didn't see it again Friday...

Woah James! My boss is also a big SW fanboy who went into it with low expectations and they were not met either.

Wags, you're a fanboy, did you like it?

I enjoyed it but there was a lot of very gimmicky attempts at comedy, some worked, a lot didn't. I'll probably see it again to really find out how much I like it.

I will say, I really liked

I still don't know how they're going to handle Carrie Fischer's role. I read there was a tribute to her after the credits so I stuck around but they didn't have it.
