The world premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi (video below) recently fell upon Los Angeles, with the movie screening for the US press on Monday, 11th December and the European premiere being held London's Royal Albert Hall the following day, ahead of the movies worldwide release next Friday, the 15th December. The movie's marketing has reached a fever pitch with a plethora of TV spots overwhelming general audiences across virtually all forms of media, with many fans now subjecting themselves to a self-imposed media blackout until the movies release to avoid any possible spoilers. According to Deadline Star Wars: The Last Jedi is tracking towards a possible $200 million opening weekend in the US alone, beating 2016's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's opening weekend of $176 million, but falling short of Star Wars: The Force Awakens' record-breaking opening weekend of $247 million.

Although the review embargo does not lift until Tuesday, the initial responses to the movie's premiere that are being shared across social media could see predictions or the movies opening weekend earnings rise or fall before it's release. If Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy's faith in director Rian Johnson is affirmed with an overwhelmingly positive response to the movie from those attending the Premieres and press screenings there is a chance that Star Wars: The Last Jedi could well end up challenging the commercial success of 2015's The Force Awakens by the end of its theatrical run.

From John Campea's recent YouTube video (above) it seems that many of those that were in attendance at the world premiere have high praise for the movie, with a few critics even comparing The Last Jedi to The Empire Strikes Back, claiming The Last Jedi to be as good as, or better than The Empire Strikes Back and reportedly not repeating the themes of The Empire Strikes Back, as many fans had feared. When the review embargo lifts on Tuesday we will hopefully get a more detailed, though non-spoilerific opinion from those who have been fortunate enough to see The Last Jedi early than us mere mortals.
