I only know one truth: stay away from Reddit for the next week.  :D
I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me

I've been struggling with the Topps Star Wars Card Trader App over the past week too.  Lots of new cards with scenes I don't really want to see yet.  I've been opening the packs but trying not to look closely at the images.  Can't wait for Thursday.

I received a reply from the Manager from the MN zoo Imax. They don't yet have any word on the length of the "exclusive content".

I sure hope it isn't that 2 minute long garbage where the cast and director say hi to the audience. No thanks.

I've checked out some info during the production of TLJ, but based on the initial word out of the world premiere?  I'm checking out from social media for the next few days.  Especially after I heard word of some trolls on twitter who have been tweeting spoiler hashtags and saying that they were doing it for a laugh.

Same here...  it's been hard trying to find news to post on the front page because I've just tried to avoid the social media internet as much as possible the past few days. :P

It's going to be a tough couple of days....but I've seen a couple of spoiler free reviews and they are glowingly positive!

Some have said it's the best Star Wars film ever....I find that hard to believe in a universe where Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back exists.

I missed the "exclusive" content because I was in a long line to get a free popcorn/soda included with the price of my ticket. Apparently it was just a behind the scenes look at John Williams making the soundtrack. No Han Solo trailer.

More of a general interest note than anything else.  I was watching some of the BTS features on the BluRay, notably Andy Serkis's performance as Snoke.  And something about the throne was sticking out to me.  And then I realized where I had seen that throne before...

The design for Snoke's throne has the same silhouette as Ralph McQuarrie's original design for the Emporer's throne in the lava chamber.  I continue to be surprised and impressed how the new films are looking to those original designs for inspiration in the current films.
