Another New Special Looks At The Rise Of Skywalker!

We have another new nostalgia-filled special look at The Rise of Skywalker, courtesy of Amazon, which contains a few new scenes and some old BTS footage of the Original Trilogy. There is one scene in there that was pretty nice to see concerning some old friends. While there are no serious spoilers beyond what has been shown in the trailers you may want to skip this one if you’ve been avoiding those. The video is actually a “secret” and you have to search #TheRiseOfSkywalker on Amazon or by telling Alexa “Alexa, The Force will be with you always, but here’s the link so you don’t have to do that. You’ve been warned, so click here to take a look!

Review: D-O/R5-2JE/R6-LE5/R2-SHP - Droid Factory

The D-O/R5-2JE/R6-LE5/R2-SHP Droid Factory four-pack concentrates on four new droids from Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker. Most of them are quite nice, and it’s the only way to secure a 3.75″ version of D-O at the moment. Check this set out in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Burger King Germany Is Teasing Star Wars Fans With Spoilers!

The following story is NOT fake news! Burger King Germany has a really weird Star Wars promotion going on (which is apparently not supported by Disney). You can get a free Whopper if you are willing to open the (German) Burger King app, click a button to get a spoiler for The Rise of Skywalker and then read it out loud. Actually, the app has voice recognition and will give you a coupon if you read it out loud at home so you don’t really have to read it out loud to a BK employee behind the counter as the video suggests.
Burger King Germany even has a video on their official YouTube channel that explains it all. However, the restaurant you see, with the extremely spoilery menu names, was specifically made to look like that for the video. So it’s only that one restaurant that had the spoilery menu names. Even the food had spoilers, the fries, the straws, the packaging, the shirts worn by employees. All the normal Burger King restaurants still look the same, however! And it’s apparent that Burger King got all their leaks from JediPaxis on Reddit. What a weird world we live in! You can watch the extremely spoilery (if you can read German!) Burger King video here! Don’t click it if you can read German and want to know nothing! Has anything like that ever happened anywhere before? Is this peak spoiler culture? To quote McDonald’s: “I’m lovin’ it”.

Burger King Star Wars menu names

The menus were renamed just in one restaurant for the video. This is the blurred version.

The Rise Of Skywalker - How Much Money Will It Make?

Estimating box office has become very important in Hollywood. They usually know a few weeks or even months in advance how a movie is going to perform. Various sources are used, social media, trend data and trailer views, to name the most common sources. JTA regular 80sRobot posted a few estimates of his own in the comments recently, based solely on YouTube trailer views. A recent study by a tracking company has found that YouTube trailer views are a predictor for box office success, to a certain degree, so this seems like a valid approach. Based on this I thought it might be fun to see if we here on JTA can make our own estimates about the success of The Rise of Skywalker at the box office and took a closer look at YouTube trailer views and box office success. Spoiler: The Rise of Skywalker will most likely perform worse than The Last Jedi. Why? Click through to find out!

One Last Potential The Rise Of Skywalker Spoiler

We’re only a few days away from The Rise of Skywalker. I will actually see the movie next week on Wednesday, the movie opens in Europe on December 18th, only two days after the world premiere in Hollywood. Expect more leaks to come and confirmation of whether or not they are actually true very soon. And I want to discuss one such leak, even if not technically speaking a leak, today.

Dan Mindel, director of photography for The Rise of Skywalker, posted a photo on his Instagram, which was deleted a short time later. And this photo may contain some very crucial information. And the fact that the photo was deleted a short time later may actually confirm that the photo was never supposed to be posted, because it’s very spoilery. Anyone who wants to see it and discuss leaks in general, please click through! Anyone else should avoid this article! You will be spoiled if you click through!

Deadline reports some early box office tracking numbers for The Rise of Skywalker. This is what they have to say about the opening weekend:

We’ve been hearing for quite some time from exhibitors and distribution sources that advance ticket sales are strong, but not overly robust for Disney/Lucasfilm’s finale Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, meaning in the way that they were for 2015’s Force Awakens ($247.9M) and 2017’s Last Jedi ($220M). Hence, early AM estimates for the J.J. Abrams movie hitting tracking, when averaged are at $205M given the comparative titles provided.
