Everybody loves getting to watch the latest movies before anybody else. It’s one of the joys of being a ‘film critic’, but even film critics sometimes have to wait until the very last minute to get to see a film, and that’s always the case with these new Star Wars movies, and it will be the case when Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker comes out later this year.
Disney is so paranoid about spoilers coming out before the movie is released that they wait until the very last second possible to let critics watch their latest Star Wars movies, and it means that we are left frantically writing up our thoughts on these movies very very late at night, or early in the morning…
However, this year, there is a way to get to watch Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker before anybody else, but you have to be prepared to sit through a 27 hour-long Star Wars movie marathon beforehand, which sounds incredibly tiring if you ask me.
Watch Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker before anybody else, but it comes at a price
This means that people attending this epic Star Wars movie marathon will get to watch Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker a whole hour before anybody else in the United States of America.
The lengths people will go to to get to watch a movie before anybody else.
That said, the lucky people (or unlucky, depends on your outlook on life) will get to watch what happens to Rey, Finn, Po, BB8, Kylo Rey and the rest in Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker a full hour before it’s released to the general public.
Is it really worth it? I don’t think so
This means you’ll be able to spoil everything for people on Twitter. I mean, don’t do that. That’s just not cool. But, you could do it if you felt like it. But that would be bad.
Would you sit through a 27 hour-long Star Wars movie marathon in order to watch Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker before anybody else? That’s eight movies! That’s a lot. That said, there are some very good films in there, but there are also some pretty naf ones too.
Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker hits UK cinemas on 19th December 2019, so we get to see it a full day before our American cousins. Maybe you could travel to the UK to watch it before your American friends.
