“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” Opens at 7pm Tonight With Great Reviews and A Couple of Huge Spoilers That Will Shock Audience


“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” will open tonight (Thursday) at 7pm in hundreds of locations. It contains a couple of spoilers that fans will have to restrain themselves from revealing. One of them is HUGE. and may disturb old fans. Another is pretty big, but it’s the nice kind.

The Rian Johnson directed episode 8 of the 40 year old series has a 94 on Rotten Tomatoes. There are only 11 negative reviews, and those people have been sent to Alabama to work for Dou Jones as unpaid interns.

Will “The Last Jedi” clear $200 million this weekend? I do think it’s possible as it is an ending as much as it is a continuation. Lots of fans will see it twice, including yours truly. And here’s a mini spoiler: Justin Theroux is in the movie. You find him, pay close attention.
