To watch, or not to watch, the question is.
There are trailers, and there are Star Wars Trailers. Not only do they draw hundred of millions of plays within 24 hours, are #1 in trending video, but: do they give away too much?
You can divide the majority of Star Wars fans into those who want to know everything, and the kind that wants to go in clean as possible. For The Force Awakens, a very tight ship was run, and trailers just gave the vaguest of hints. But for The Last Jedi, Lucasfilm is relaxing just a tad more, releasing more visuals, and more revealing trailers.A fact that even director Rian Johnson knows himself. He took onto Twitter to give a more nuanced view than shouty headlines.
I a legitimately torn. If you want to come in clean, absolutely avoid it.— Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) October 8, 2017

FWIW: I love that there are folks who want to come into a movie clean, I think that’s awesome. Me, I’m a weak man. I watch ALL THE TRAILERS— Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) October 9, 2017
FORGET EVERYTHING I SAID AND WATCH IT WATCH IT WATCH IT https://t.co/itreyIVN8A— Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) October 10, 2017
