Much water-cooler talk yesterday as this latest “Star Wars” tease went viral. I watched all the Twitter hyperventilation and grown men soil themselves over it. But, to be honest, I give this sneak peek a C+ overall–and they can thank Han Solo and Chewbacca for the passing grade, with their token cameos at the end. A lot of hype for this Christmas release. We just had Tax Day. We’re still two weeks from Derby. This film is over 8 months away. It feels like Target running Christmas commercials in April. I’m concerned when movies pitch this much hype, this far out, that the studio is over-compensating for something. But, I’ll let you decide if this is the greatest thing since the remote control was invented….
