Yesterday, Tickets to ‘Starwars: The Force Awakens’ went on sale and immediately crashed numerous websites. Yours truly managed to snag an IMAX 3D showing on opening night Dec. 18th, 2015 (2 months out)! Shortly after, the trailer hit the interwebs and hit 200k views in a matter of 20 minutes. Today, it’s been viewed close to 13 MILLION times (10 of those are my contributions). The trailer is below if you haven’t yet watched it. Be prepare to get swept up in all the feels.
2 words: David Simon. Have no idea what I’m talking about? ok, how about 4 more: Creator of the Wire.
Yeah, David Simon has delved into it again, and come out with something that looks amazing. Show me a Hero, is the story of a real life Yonkers, New York Mayor who is federally mandated to offer low-income housing in his city. Sounds boring, but just watch the trailer, you’ve never seen public policy so dramatic and riveting.
Star Wars fans at comic con were surprised with a beautiful little short that showed the behind the scenes action of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The damn thing gave me chills.
They were then given another gift from heaven with invitations to a surprise concert performed by the San Diego Symphony featuring classic Star Wars music from John Williams at the Embarcadero Marina Park South. Ohhhh man~~ can’t wait for Johnny to get back and tell us all about it~
