>Today, Disney and Lucasfilm announced that Star Wars: Episode VIII, originally scheduled for release in summer 2017, will now debut on December 15, 2017.

>The move follows the extraordinary success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was the first Star Wars movie to premiere outside the traditional summer blockbuster window and smashed numerous records, including biggest domestic and global debuts of all time as well as the biggest domestic second and third weekends, en route to becoming the highest grossing domestic release of all time with over $861.3 million and the third biggest global release ever with $1,886.7 billion.

>Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: Episode VIII is currently in preproduction and will begin principal photography in London next month. Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman will produce and J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski will executive produce. Stay tuned for exciting updates in the coming weeks.

Interesting. I wonder what the reason is. Maybe Disney has seen capeshit projections for the next few years and is worried about cannibalising GotG 2 profits?

They realized that 6 months in between movies is too short a time.

I figured the May, 2017 date was overly optimistic, given production times and whatnot. Yes, it would be nice for the 40th anniversary, but sticking with December seemed more reasonable from a logistical standpoint once they've started with it.

>>65118493

Yeah. I fear Avatar has become Cameron's white whale. I love his work, but he's sinking so much into making sequels for it that it's going to ruin him, because the film, while pretty and well done, really had no lasting appeal. He should have just moved on to Alita and let it go.

considering how more and more people are athiest or strongly agnostic, it doesn't really matter. we're not religious prudes anymore. we're secularist and social. deal with it.

you can have christmas without religious overtones.
>>
>>65120268
Probably not too much more. It will likely do better but I still wouldn't expect an enormous amount. Star Wars just plain didn't have time to marinate over there like it did here.

Maybe, but Titanic 2 is coming out about the same time as well.

I doubt Avatar 2 will even be done by then. I mean other than "Dec 2017" there has been next no news on it. Jimmy to busy diving to the bottom of the ocean to even give a fuck.

Most atheist people I know just buy themselves something on Christmas, often times not even bothering to get a tree. Atheists really don't feel a sense of generosity towards their fellow man, that's why they want the government to handle the poor, so they don't have to get out of bed and volunteer for charity work.

Or they could just be smart about it, put in a white character, and EVERYBODY would go see the movie.

Be honest folks, it's what happens.
>>
>>65122052

.implying a films release date is a part of its identity, worth or emotional impact.

>>65122156
Oh wow
How are they going to finish it so fast?
>>
Gotta need more time to put the Poe/Finn romance in the script
>>
>>65122369
If they are starting filming next month, they can film the CG heavy things first and have well over a year to get it set up. As long as they are done filming by the time Rogue One premieres, they will have a full year to polish it.
>>
>>65120286
I don't have any fedora images anymore sorry buddy


Anyways disney exposed themselves as not caring about the movies by putting out a lackluster as fuck movie so I don't see Star Wars being as big a moneymaker as the marvel movies

Oh shit. So wait. There was a new female role rumored to be a love interest for Finn. She was previously supposed to be that Mbatha black girl, but now that TFA didn't do as well in Asia, they wanna switch her to an Asian girl.

Only thing is, why would that require rewrites? Was the black girl gonna be Lando's daughter or something?
>>

4d and there are blue aliens in the theater that jerk you off while you watch the sex scenes so that it feels like you're really there

Avatar 2 will be the first film to introduce REAL GENITAL TICKLING TECHNOLOGY 4D while you watch the film.
$3 Billion foreign box office.

>>65118583
If they don't beat Titanic now with TFA, I'd be willing to bet that gets a fancy rerelease too.

Only $2 billion?

It will make 700m+ from China alone.
