Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens ★★★

"When confirming RSVPs for the one and only Episode VII press screening in NYC, Disney’s email included some more-severe-than-usual boilerplate about spoilers and embargoes: 'In order to give audiences around the world the opportunity to enjoy Star Wars: The Force Awakens to its fullest and allow them to discover its surprises and plot twists in the cinema, we respectfully ask that you as press continue to be our partners on this journey, and we ask that you refrain from revealing spoilers and detailed story points in your coverage, including on social media.' This is a little corporate-slimy (I’m a partner now? Do I get revenue points?), but then I realized I hate writing synopses, so I’m perfectly fine with not explaining anything that happens in this movie at all."
