    "I have taken a very, very, very anti- Episode 3 stance. The reasoning that if I expect nothing but 100% pure crap from the movie and it turns out not to be as bad as expected, then I might actually not walk away feeling raped like the millions whom had their love of Star Wars destroyed by Episode 2".

    Oh dear. :rolleyes:
    Millions? Tell me, where do you bashers get all this **** information from.

    I saw this here.

    Once every three years, the first trailer for yet another crappy George Lucas Star Wars movie is released somewhere to great fanfare. And each time, I watch said trailer and get all excited. It looks great, I'll say. Maybe it'll actually be good. My hopes start to rise. And then the movie comes out, Natalie Portman is transformed by Lucas' awful direction into the worst actress ever, and I leave the theatre disappointed that a cherished childhood institution has been handled in such a piss-poor manner. With the impending release of Episode III and the trailer during last night's episode of The OC, I have vowed not to get my hopes up. Never again, George Lucas, will you disappoint me.

    However.

    OMFG THE TRAILER FOR THE NEW STAR WARS MOVIE IS SOOO GREAT AND EXCITING AND THIS MOVIE IS GOING TO KICK SO MUCH ***!!!

    Yes it is... I went and bought a ticket to Robots just to see the trailer...

    Seeing it on the web... free
    Talking about it here...free
    Seing it in the theater...priceless!

    Amazing...

    It gave me goosebumps... Sidious against the Jedi posse might just cause heartfailure...


    The drumbeats rocked the theater...all the kids cheered when it was over... Then I stood pulled up my hood ...I turned on my master replica Vader saber and strode from the theater...I had to do what must be done.


    Some kid right behind me:
    " Look mom... did you see that? There was a Jedi with a red light saber here! " "It was a real one too!" "Cooooool! I want one of those..."

    made my day...

    I can't stop watching. May 19 can't come soon enough. Anakin marching with the stormtroopers was an incrediable moment. This film imo will put the pt over the ot for me. It will be that damn good. ( I admit Aotc is my favorite already, so 2 of my top 3 wil be pt films)


    This is going to surpass any of the lotr films for my money's worth anyways.

    I had to work when the trailer came on during the OC but my friend taped it for me. She called me after she saw the trailer and left me a voicemail.

    She said that she's not really big into Sw or movie previews but the one she just saw was ******* amazing.

    I was pleased to hear this from her.

    Then I proceded to go home and dirty up my underwear when I watched it.

    You know what's a really fun activity? Seeing what songs synch up with the trailers. So far the Orchestral version of the Kingdom Hearts theme synchs up perfectly with both the Teaser and Full trailer.

    Over zealous mod closed the 'favourite and least favourite part of trailer' so here goes :

    Best (by an absolute mile) - Mace/Palpatine. 'Are you threatening me MAster Jedi'. Saber appears. Screams and charges the posse.

    Spine chilling.

    2nd The shot of Anakin and stormtroopers.
    3rd Seeing Padme breaking down into tears was a powerful shot.

    Worst - Suited Vader. Obviously have to show him to 'the masses', but what a lazy shot to use. No dialogue or anything.

    For anyone in the UK they just showed the trailer on Sky Movies, on the show "Movie News" right at the end. Its normally repeated throughout the week so they'll probably be a few chances to catch it if anyone hasn't seen it yet.

    The shot of Anakin marching to the Separatist's chambers is so intense. After the Jedi Temple slaughter, the man looks like he's on a roll....headed straight towards disaster.

    I hate to ask this as I'm sure others have already done so, but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. When will the theactrical trailer be available online for non-hyperspace members?

    Ahh! My hopes are soaring and the trailer is great! however the trailer for the Phantom Menace was really really great and the movie absolutely horrible :( I agree that the CORNHOLIO "Are you threatening me Master Jedi?" was the best part along with Anakin marching with the stormtroopers. So they ARE going to show much of the jedi purge? If the movie is just half as good as the trailer it will be awesome. Here's hoping,
    Valkor

    ps. are you threatening me?? TP for my bunghole!

    Although I already have the trailer, I went to watch Hitch today at Odeon Leicester Square (home of the UK Premier) and the trailer was shown.

    Even before anything came up on screen I said to my GF that this is gonna be the trailer then I heard people saying to each other as the music started.

    On the big big screen there it was awsome and alot of girls screemed when the Hayden sceen without shirt was shown, after the trailer finished, the cinema was just totally silent.

    I had goose bumps running through me, it was like watching the OT again on the big screen.

    I think that this film is gonna shut alot of PT Bashers up!

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    I went to see Robots just so could see the trailer on the big screen. it was better than when i first saw it. and when it was over a bunch of people(including me) bursted into applause and cheered.
    This is one of the coolest(if not the coolest) movie Trailers I've ever seen

    Just saw Robots, the Trailer is fantastic on the big screen. Reaction was silent until Vadar was shown, than I heard 2 different people say, "cool!" and "sweet!".

    That is why the public will embrace ROTS more than I and II. One word...Vadar.

    WOW. This trailer is awesome. I cant stop watching it. Did anyone notice that if you freeze-frame the first few seconds (the part where we see the theta class shutlle being escorted by what appear to resemble tie-fighters) that the escorts also appear to resemble the sith infiltrator? Kinda cool.

    I must have watched it 15 times in the past 4 hours. I like it a lot now. I am not going to spend 12$ to watch it on the big screen when I can wait 68 days and pay less to see the whole film.

    Unluckily, I got banned for a week. Let's just say I disagree about it [face_plain]

    Unfortunately, I had to spend the week lurking on these forums...

    It's very sad I could not participate with you all on this major event, but I am pretty informed on what's going on.

    This trailer is Jaw Dropping in every way.

    My favorite shot? Anakin leading the Clones to destory Jedi Temple. That's SO powerful!!!

    My only disappoint are lack of Padme and Grievous. I wish they had lines or more action scenes, for Grievous. That is NOT to say I am disappointed with this trailer, so Please don't get me wrong.

    I showed the trailer to some co-workers, they were also like "Woah I can't wait"

    The new Insider magazine has the best pictures ever (I mean, it's the last one prior to the movie, right?)

    And, I can't wait to 60 minutes, this got to have new footages, and ROTS score sneak peak as well.


    One more day to that!!!

    Saw it before Robots last night. I resisted the urge to watch it online, and even taped it off of television but did not watch it. I did read the descriptions and everyone's comments, but had no idea how powerfully McDiarmid questioned Windu with the "threatening" line.
    Also, the shots of Anakin storming the temple were great. No disappointing shots at all.
