During a recent interview segment with Sean O’Connell at Cinema Blend, Adam Driver delivered his thoughts on the subject of trailers and director Rian Johnson’s upcoming Episode VIII. When asked how he would feel if Episode VIII made it’s theatrical debut around the world without Lucasfilm releasing any trailers for it ahead of time, Driver responded:
I think that’d be bold. I’d love it, yeah! Then no one would know anything. The less people know, I feel like, the more exciting… the more of an event it is.
Kudos to Driver for adopting this “radical” mindset, but here’s a news flash for ya bro – it ain’t gonna happen. There’s a better chance of the NY Jets winning the Super Bowl next season than there is for an Episode VIII trailer-less 2017.
