A Nine-Movie Star Wars Marathon

The final film in the Skywalker saga, Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker opens nationwide on Friday, December 20th, with previews beginning at at 6PM on Thursday the 19th. There's a way you can see the new movie at 5PM if you like, but there's a catch. AMC Theaters is offering a 27-hour Star Wars marathon beginning on Wednesday the 18th, where you can see all three trilogies on the big screen, ending with The Rise of Skywalker beginning at 5PM on Thursday. The run time is listed at 27 hours and 21 minutes. However, the total run time of the eight movies already released doesn't add up to 5PM Friday, so we assume there will be breaks between films. Which makes you wonder, if you have the marathon ticket, where does it say you have to watch all those movies instead of, say, going home to sleep during the prequels? Or is the thrill of seeing The Rise of Skywalker one hour early enough to limit the audience to hardcore fans who would sit through all of them? Maybe the ticket price for the marathon will tell us, but that has not been released.

In other news, the final trailer for The Rise of Skywalker will air during this week's Monday Night Football, and then will go online soon after. -via io9
