May The Force Be...Oh Forget It.
It's fortunate that, when a National Election doesn't go your way, there are a myriad of other entertaining things to get your mind off the fact that the country is going to hell in a handbasket. And today, LAist is proud to get you obessive-compulsive Bush-haters off that bandwagon and onto another obsessive-compulsively sad one.
Thanks to The Force dot Net, LAist is happy to announce that today marks the World Premiere of the Teaser Trailer for Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, which is causing at least 4.6% of the public to double-up on the Depends today. Where can you catch it?
The Official Site: Hyperspace members will have exclusive access to a high-quality Quicktime version of the teaser in "early afternoon of November 4."
AOL Users: AOL subscribers will have access to some version of the teaser at 1:00 PM EST.
Total Request Live: The MTV program will have the first televised airing at 5:00 PM EST on November 4th.
Access Hollywood: The next televised viewing will occur on the syndicated Hollywood news program during Thursday, November 4th's evening broadcast.
The Incredibles: The official teaser trailer will be showing before the Pixar film, opening tomorrow.
Really, honestly -- for those disappointed with yesterday's election outcome, there couldn't be any greater news than this. Well, except for finding out that the movie, written and directed by George Lucas (again!), was actually somewhat decent...
But for that, we're all going to have to wait through the sounds of high-pitched fan-boy screaming, long lines in front of Mann's Chinese (starting tomorrow, for next May's premiere of the movie) and continued debate about whether or not Senator Palpatine could use a little botox to smooth out those nasty Darkside wrinkles.
