‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’: Everything You Need to Know About Tickets, Trailers, & Marathons

By October 18, 2015
  0

Things are about to get really, really crazy for Star Wars fans in the coming days. With final confirmation coming recently that tomorrow, Monday, October 19th will feature the release of the final Force Awakens trailer and when tickets will finally go on sale, it’s clear that fans don’t really know what to expect by the time tomorrow night ends. My predictions? A lot of sold out movie theatre auditoriums around the world, and the equal amount of money spent on those tickets. Wallets will be emptied, and John Williams music will be played.

So following the reveal of the film’s final official poster earlier today – we here at GeekNation decided to put together a little guide so that all of you know when and where you can find the newest trailer tomorrow, the movie theatre chains that will be playing the marathon of all six previous Star Wars films and how you can buy tickets for all the days following December 18th.

But before all of that, check out these official new teases for tomorrow’s trailer that feature some new footage from the film (H/T Joblo)

Yup, in case you weren’t already looking forward to the trailer – these teases should have made you.

So when does the full trailer actually premiere though? I know that’s what we’re all wondering, so here’s the best time frame I can give you. The trailer will debut Monday night during the NFL game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants, and will air during halftime. The game begins at 5:15PM PDT/8:15PM EDT.

Tickets will go on sale immediately after the trailer debuts through any outlet that sells movie tickets, so it’d probably be smart to keep refreshing the website that you buy your tickets from immediately after the trailer drops. Then once you’re done buying as many seats as possible, you can go ahead and watch the trailer again a million times – I know I will.

That’s not all though because a number of well-known theatre chains throughout the country will be selling exclusive Force Awakens merchandise during specific times throughout the weeks that follow. Here’s a list of each chain and what they’ll be including with some of their screenings (courtesy of StarWars.com):

Alamo Drafthouse
Included with the advanced ticketing promotion going on at participating Alamo Drafthouse locations throughout the country, fans will be able to gtrab two exclusive, limited edition Star Wars: The Force Awakens collectible items. They include an official Mondo-designed pint glass and a double-sized collector’s issue of the Alamo Drafthouse magazine, BIRTH. MOVIES. DEATH., which will be celebrating 40 years of the Star Wars saga.

Regal Cinemas
Star Wars Saturdays: Each Saturday, from December 19 to January 9, at Regal theatres the first 500 guests who experience Star Wars: The Force Awakens in IMAX will receive a collectable ticket featuring unique Star Wars: The Force Awakens art. New art will be revealed each week.

AMC Theatres
Star Wars Sundays: Each Sunday, from December 20 to January 10, guests who purchase a ticket to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens in IMAX 3D will receive an AMC-exclusive Star Wars print from artist Dan Mumford. A new poster will be revealed each week.

Also, join the celebration at Walt Disney World as AMC Theatres and Disney Parks celebrate the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Opening Night Event will take place on December 17, where participants will be among the first to see the new film at AMC Disney Springs 24 and then celebrate together at a private after-hours party at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Tickets are available online only at AMCtheatres.com/StarWarsWDW

Fandango
On Fandango, Star Wars: The Force Awakens ticket buyers will be automatically entered into a sweepstakes for the chance to win a trip to the film’s world premiere. Moviegoers who purchase tickets within the first 24 hours can increase their chances to win. Additionally, ten runners-up can win a collectible “Dark Side” or “Light Side” prize pack.

Cinemark
Cinemark is giving fans the opportunity to receive a pair of exclusive RealD 3D Star Wars glasses. There are three ways guests can get these collectable glasses: By attending the Star Wars Marathon Event on December 17. By attending the first show of Star Wars: The Force Awakens Thursday 12/17 in Cinemark XD, or with the purchase of a Star Wars concession combo, coming in November.

So depending on the experience you want to have, it looks like you can choose what Force Awakens exclusive you might want the most, and choose from any of the outlets listed above.

Finally, Disney and Lucasfilm have officially confirmed that a number of movie theatres throughout the world will be airing an official Star Wars Marathon that will begin on December 17th and show all six of the previous Star Wars films leading up to the late-night premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
