    Yes, a lot of people are seemingly forgetting this. It’s been confirmed that it was originally wanted for summer 2015. They've already pushed it back half a year. It doesn't need to be pushed back a whole year.

    There does seem to be a lot of "doomsayers" just for the sake of it, I'm sorry to say. A lot seem to be quite relentless. You just know that if the film ends up being universally panned they will be the first ones to come out and say "Told ya". There's no need for it. Episode 7 is following an incredibly standard time-frame. It is being no more "rushed" than any other film coming out in 2015. Also, might I remind people, that it’s actually coming out at the very end of 2015. Plenty of time.

    True dat. People with their alternate opinions stinking up the place. Good job there are those here to do their thinking for them.

    I don't think anyone here has said people aren't allowed their opinions just that there's not much pointing to them trying to rush the film. Disney was accommodating when the filmmakers needed more time and that seems to indicate that they do care about the quality of the film.

    I recall from my lurking days a post saying it could only count down from 100 weeks and would flip over or something anyway it just seems like more of the same "tradition" nonsense how dare it come out on a month other than may i for one embrace the fact that the final trilogy is coming at long last and would rather embrace this new xmas tradition (as the hobbit completes this dec) then wait an extra year just cause it has to come out at the same time its like when they moved there and back again to december just to keep"tradition" we could have had it 5 months sooner but no dont make WBs mistake disney

    The countdown clocks only allow two digits to be used so they couldn't make it 102 weeks as it should be. Once the two weeks are gone they'll change it to 99 weeks. We're supposed to use our imaginations and pretend we see a 1 until then. :p

    Quick question (mainly because I kept bringing it up and nobody really responded directly):

    If December 18 has been announced, does that mean they have reserved the weekend but still have the option of releasing it on Wednesday, December 16?

    I'm thinking they'd be foolish not to do so. SW is the kind of movie that will bring TONS of people on Wednesday and Thursday despite it being a school night.

    I'm guessing the date is the date. It did seem odd to me that it would be on a Friday, but I really can't imagine that they would make such a big to-do about the 18th only to later say "Well actually no it's really being released on the 16th. Same diff right?"

    But at this point wouldn't they simply want to reserve the weekend slot and they can still have time to ponder a Wednesday release? Nobody else can take December 18 (and they were probably hoping nobody would take Christmas week either but MI5 producers foolishly think they can succeed by being released on Christmas).

    I don't think so. The actual date for a movie like this is important. I think if they had wanted a Wednesday release they would have announced it from the start, like they did with the other ones.

    I wonder if they'll keep December as the new Star Wars release date from now on?
