This is it, this weekend is why we are all here. This could quite possibly be the biggest weekend in box office history or perhaps the biggest let down. A lot of us were not around for the original trilogy's box office run and some of us wish we were not around for the prequels' run. Regardless, this weekend reminds us why we are box office fans and movie fans to begin with. Star Wars has brought us together for years and I expect no different this weekend. 

 

That being said, lets have fun yet be careful. DO NOT POST SPOILERS. NOT EVEN SPOILERS UNDER SPOILER TAGS. This weekend, posting a spoiler can result in an immediate Box Office Discussion Forum ban. You will not be given a warning. This goes for all new releases usually but this is a huge weekend and we will not tolerate any spoilers what so ever for Star Wars. If you wish to discuss the movie with spoilers, feel free to use the Star Wars Force Awakens Spoiler Thread HERE .

 

We're looking forward to a great weekend and we realize the over-excitement (or meltdowns) can cause the thread to go off topic. We will be allowing everyone to post freely as long as the off topic discussions don't go overboard. I understand some of you like Pokemon, wonder about Tele's age, or hope Peyton Manning comes back this weekend vs the Steelers in what should be a top notch game considering the Denver Defense has been on point while the Steelers offense has been unstoppable, but please try your best to stick to box office numbers for the weekend. 

 

Last, but not least we are offering a HUGE HOLIDAY SALE this weekend. We are offering great discounts on annual subscriptions.

 

  • GOLD ACCOUNTS - $150 (Usually $165)
  • PREMIUM ACCOUNTS - $100 (Usually $110)
  • SILVER ACCOUNTS - $80 (Usually $88)
  • COPPER ACCOUNTS - $50 (Usually $55)

 

Please remember that having a paid account is a donation to keeping this forum around for a long time. We still have the rest of the Star Wars saga to go through folks.

 

Note: We are posting this weekend thread early to make sure everyone reads the guidelines regarding spoilers and also the international release has begun.

Rth tends to be pretty coy with preview numbers. I think we don't get anything solid until 7-8am PST. Maybe even later. Remember, shows are running all night, up to 6am.

Why not just sit in a theater and watch it 5 times?

I'm watching it in the morning, then at 7:00. Then maybe at 10:00 if my friend is up for it.
