    Okay, so I was bagging LF for not releasing more than one teaser (I'd prefer a couple of teasers rather than the stupid amount of stupid merchandise) but what do you guys think of the new trailer? Of course this topic won't become active until it's actually released, but I thought I'd get in and start it first. Yeah I'm cheeky.

    Is it being released with any specific movies in SA? I ask cos I'm going to the movies next week (or Sunday night), so it may help sway me ;).

    Only a few more days until it becomes officially released, ahem...

    I read this somewhere too....apparently it 'debuts' during the OC this week and then in cinemas the week after. Not sure if that's US or here though.

    Apparently (read the Episode III section of theforce.net) it was accidentally screened in Peru cinemas a few times. Apparently someone filmed it. Apparently you can download a really crappy version. Apparently some people reckon it's not worth downloading as you can't see much. It's caused a bit of a s**tstorm in the 3SA forums.

    Only a few days to go I guess.

    The official poster has been released however: http://theforce.net/episode3/newspics/e3poster.jpg for the small version. http://www.theforce.net/episode3/newspics/e3poster-big.jpg for the big one.

    Kindof cool I suppose. Will look good on my wall with the other 5. Less characters, more emphasis on action, which bodes well for the film. ObiWan and Palpatine look silly to me - not quite right. And Vader's helmet is stupidly off centre. Perhaps the weakest of the prequel trilogy posters so far, moreso given the powerful subject matter of the final film. Still looks quite good. I guess I'm a tad undecided ;) . How long until it appears in shops I wonder?

    Hmmm, I'm not sure that I like the poster, but then I never really liked the others either, they were just okay. Palpatine looks like an old woman...

    So what do you think of the trailer guys?

    Quite good. Very dark. Very evil. Huge scope of the big changes in the Star Wars universe is conveyed nicely, along with some of the characters' personal upheavals. And even though it shows 'a lot', many things such as Padme's pregnancy, the machinations in the Senate (although it's aluded to), Grievous, the final lightsabre battle are barely touched on, or if they are, in a very brief fashion.

    There is so much in this film, yet it's going to be relatively short - 2 hours and 8 minutes I've heard. I still don't konw how it'll all be packed in. Hopefully without lots of stupid dialogue (ie You're not sandy. I love you. You can't. Why. It'll destroy us. Okay. No wait - I love you.....bleurgh!!!!).

    BTW - Palpatine is so much more evil than Darth Vader. He is going to rule this film. Oh yes.

    yes, don't we all hope it's not full of mush like the memorable fireplace scene?

    I haven't seen it yet, but I will now!

    Where ?
    When ?
    What did I miss ?
    As for Palpy being more evil than Vader.... Really ???
    Vader is only the puppet, Palpy hand his hand up Vader's butt for two decades.

    When and where you ask EI? If you really were evil, you would have had the trailer several days ago before it was released.

    I don't think I can tell you lest I get banned (as some people have) but if you go to the 3SA forum you should be able to figure it out. I could bring a decent hires version on my lappy by next week to show people at the laser shootemupthing.

    Alternatively, search carefully for relevant stuff with any file sharing program and it should turn up.

    I bet the Today Show has it on Monday or at some point next week.

    I'm not going to ban people for first offences, you guys just aren't allowed to link to the trailer. I'll only be editing them out unless you insist on being a repeat offender. :p

    Not at all arguing with the mods here, or arguing with the owners (who pay for bandwidth and have to deal with LFL) one bit. They are trying to do the right thing, as am I by not posting any direct or even indirect links to the trailer.

    But I must ask the following question anyway....

    Shouldn't LFL be happy that people are posting links to the trailer which advertises their own film??? For free over the internet - it doesn't cost them a cent to drum up this amount of publicity. I mean, it's just a trailer.

    Unless they are doing it to drive up demand for Hyperspace (a year ago I would've joined had I had ADSL, now why bother, we find out anything quickly enough anyway).

    Just wondering is all...

    Don't worry. I'll wait until the 14th when I can see it legitimately online. I don't have file-sharing anywho. No need for theatrics.

    I agree completely, oz_skipp. It's an issue that's been debated by the mods, but in the end the last thing we need is to be taken down for distributing copyrighted material.

    I remember waiting three years ago for the AOTC trailers to come out, refreshing the SW.com page every couple of minutes to try and get it to load, it was so crowded. Those were the days...

    I saw the trailer tonight and it was freaking awesome :D

    I guess I hadn't thought too much about what rots will be like, so it was rather interesting for me to see.

    It looks like it will be great, and even if the story itself is a disappointment, it looks like we'll get to see at least a couple of really cool lightsaber fights :D

    I had the bootleg version about a week ago.

    But I must say, the HDTV version I now have is freakin amasing.

    ---SPOILERS---
    I love Palpy's line:

    Are you threatening me Master Jedi?

    It's so evil

    This is Palpatine's film. not Vader's.
    Broken down, old has been......
    Why don't I have it yet ?
    Simple, I have patience. I'll wait till its given to me by a loyal friend, whom shall be rewarded greatly.
    Any loyal friends willing ...???
