    I've seen the first ten or so seconds of the trailer, plus maybe two or three stills from it.
    Nothing really spoilerish for me, only one very nice revelation. I'm looking forward to it!

    No more trailers for me from now on, though.

    I predict one thing, and I won't do anything to prevent it: I may actually end up seeing the trailer during a cinema session. So far, my plans this year for the big screen include the upcoming Independence Day and Star Trek films. Given the similar subject matter, it would be very strange for the Rogue One trailer not to make an appearance. If that happens, you can bet I will not leave the cinema but instead experience the trailer for the very first time in the most optimum of conditions - the way it was meant to be seen.

    ...or, you could close your eyes, cover your ears and sing "Spoiler free, I'm spoiler free, I'm very very spoiler free" for a couple of minutes ;)

    Nah.

    I would have loved to have seen the TFA trailer for the first time in a cinema. But, to ask me to hold off on Episode VII footage is way too much.

    You've been missing a really cool scene in the trailer involving hundreds of kittens.

    Seriously, though, I'll just say that the trailer gives me quite a bit of confidence that RO will be really good.

    I'm sure RO will be amazing. I was on board for it the day it was announced because it's the side of Star Wars i've always wanted to see attempted at least once - no Jedi, all militaristic within a gritty story.

    I'm open to this if he is in the film's darkest moment. No, not talking about lighting and cinematography.

    I'm going spoiler free for Rogue One and episode 8, but I'm allowing myself to watch the trailers to calm my cravings.

    No spoilers but I will say this - you're missing out dude. The trailer is amazing.
    Also, I don't mind spoilers quite as much for Rogue One, because honestly, we all know exactly what's going to happen already.

    I find the trailers do the opposite for me.

    I get that too, honestly. But...it's just more a worthy experiment to see how I react, not to the story, but to the actual imagery and cinematography for the very first time.

    For me if I don't watch the trailers, I may break down and binge on spoilers. When I get the urge to do that I just watch the trailers.

    I easily avoid spoilers because I have a desire to not be spoiled.

    Someone commenting on AICN (yeah, I know, hardly reliable information) said s/he had a source working on the film who is claiming that reshoots were planned a year ago, but that they weren't sure as to the extent of those reshoots or when they were going to take place.

    This is how Lucas always did too it by the way. And Peter Jackson with the Middle-earth films. So I wouldn't be surprised if that's what's actually going on.

    Seeing ID4-Resurgence today. The challenge may very well be failed depending upon the previews.

    STILL have not seen the trailer or the recently released trailer. I've surprised myself. I think i'm going to make it.
