Check Out The Star Wars: The Force Awakens Newest Trailer!

SW-E7-TFA

Last night during ESPN’s Monday Night Football showcase between the Philadelphia Eagles and The New York Giants, the long-awaited full-length trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens found its way onto viewers televisions. If you haven’t already seen it by now then I don’t know what you’ve been doing, but if you want to see it now check it out right here!

It seems as though this will be the final trailer for the upcoming film and like the previous trailers (and hopefully the actual movie) it does not disappoint. Anyone who is a fan is waiting with bated breath and with less than two months before its release it’s getting harder and harder to stay patient. Fans have already shown support by breaking ticket sales records in grand fashion. Hopefully the movie ends another great year of films on a high note and reinvigorate a fan base that is ready to see the epic space opera back in the lime light again.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters December 18, 2015.

Batman v SupermanSan Diego Comic Con attendees and now the entire world has a chance to see the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight duke it out a bit in the brand new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice!
