Early praise for 'The Last Jedi' after elaborate premiere

Early praise for 'The Last Jedi' after elaborate premiere

Lourd hasn't opened up on social media about her latest, subtle style tribute to Fisher at the "Last Jedi" premiere, but then again, her Leia-inspired hairdo speaks for itself. They made their way into the site as Star Wars music played.

The premiere is being held at the Shrine Auditorium near downtown Los Angeles.

For veterans to the Star Wars franchise, the feeling never gets old.

Formal reviews won't be out for a few days, but journalists and others at the screening who shared their initial reactions online said "The Last Jedi" packed the adventure expected in a Star Wars film, but took it into new territory.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is released in United Kingdom cinemas on December 14.

Attendees at Saturday's premiere were the first people outside the cast, filmmakers and top executives at Walt Disney Co. and Lucasfilm who had seen "The Last Jedi".

His publicist told The Associated Press that his flight was able to leave Saturday morning, and Boyega calmed fans after his arrival with an update, saying he'd safely landed but his luggage didn't make it.

Boyega started the day by tweeting from Atlanta: "Looks like no one's leaving!" and "I actually NEED a pilot". Ford, a licensed pilot, co-starred with Boyega in 2015's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

She told the Press Association: "It can be hard only because the expectation is".

The actor, who plays Finn in the forthcoming movie, had previously tweeted about the extreme Atlanta weather conditions.

The red carpet was definitely a Star Wars extravaganza with replica decorations from the film as well as a team of Stormtroopers and Elite Praetorian Guards parading about in all their glory.

Laura Dern grew up with movies, in movies, and loves movies - from small independent film to super-blockbusters, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi has aspects of both. A giant assault vehicle and gun turrets towered over the carpet where guests will make their way into the venue. Luke Skywalker looked like he had a rough couple of decades since he lost his hand in 1983's Return of the Jedi.

"The Last Jedi", which arrives in theaters on December 15, is one of the year's biggest releases. Early box office projections are for the film to debut in the $200 million range on its first weekend.
