There may have been more hype for the 2-and-a-half minute long trailer of the upcoming “The Force Awakens” movie than there was for the four-hour long Eagles vs Giants game on Monday night. With Disney owning ESPN, Star Wars very smartly had their trailer released during the halftime of Monday Night Football with millions watching already, and boy was it glorious:

The months and months of hype have paid off for Disney and Lucasfilm this afternoon, as theater chains began offering advance ticket sales for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which hits theaters two months from today on December 18. Perhaps a little too well, however.

Experts have been predicting a record-smashing $165 worldwide opening for the film.
