    The Loews Astor Plaza was awesome. Saw Empire there on opening Day. Ditto Titanic, on which John Jacob Astor, the theaters namesake, perished.

    I'm of the opposite opinion. I also liked the new characters very much but I was more interested in seeing the classic characters back. That's what I wanted more than anything as I felt there was still plenty of story to be told with them. I think TFA succeeded brilliantly in melding the two.

    DUH. That's the goal of virtually every film isn't it? That's why it's called show BUSINESS. [emoji38]

    Just more brand dilution. Imo a Star Wars film every 2-3 years is sufficient. No spinoffs, no prequels, no tv series. Nuthin. [emoji52]

    It may have been considered at one point but there was no way it was gonna open TFA. It would have been laughed off the screen. Thank God JJ nixed that stupid idea.

    As usual the headline is WRONG. Cameron never said The Force Awakens lacked visual imagination. He said Lucas' first six films had more. Big difference. Here is the relevant quote from the article: "Cameron begins with the caveat that Star Wars creator George Lucas “is a friend of mine,” and...

    From Deadline: "In regards to 20th Century Fox’s Avatar sequels, which Rupert Murdoch said would be released in December 2016, 2017 and 2018; nothing official was ever put on the release date calendar, and one insider says there aren’t any planned dates as of yet."

    I agree Chuck. If TFA couldn't unseat Avatar (and I thought it would), Avatar 2 is gonna spank Episode VIII. But like Travis I'll see them both.
