Suppose you’re not the usual Star Wars fan. Suppose that it’s not just your intention to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, it’s not just your intention to see it opening weekend, or even opening night. Suppose that you might consider seeing it not just once or twice, but 10, maybe even 20 times. If this sounds like you, then Regal Cinemas may have a deal that’s worth your interest. For $100 you can get an all access pass to Rogue One for 12 weeks at a Regal Cinema near you. Any format, any time! All you need is a Regal Ultimate Ticket.  (more…)

JJ Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens began being tracked by distributors today, and estimates have it grossing anywhere from $170 million to $300 million in its opening weekend. The current highest December weekend opening belongs to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, coming in at $85 million, meaning that that the highly anticipated Star Wars sequel is expected to double the record. However, that doesn’t come close to the highest grossing weekend of all time, which is Jurassic World with $208.8 million. Of course, that film premiered during the summer blockbuster season, when the empty classrooms generally mean more money in studio pockets. (more…)

Heads up, tickets for the early IMAX 3D screenings of Star Trek Into Darkness are already on sale, and hopefully we won’t experience the site crashing issues the U.K. had yesterday when their ticketing went live. Multiple tweets went out yesterday from BFI and ODEON Cinemas confirming the issue with booking tickets, and Paramount eventually tweeted a phone number frustrated fans could call to order their tickets. Wow, IMAX hasn’t experienced site crashes like this since The Dark Knight Rises. Could Into Darkness be on its way to busting some box office records?

The buzz around this next Star Trek flick is unlike anything I’ve seen for Star Trek before, so who knows! They sure a promoting the crap out of it, and this latest poster is a weird one. Moving images, or GIFs, are all the rage right now and clearly the hope is to capitalize on this, but I’ve seen this “cinemoasic” thing done better by fans on Tumblr.
