It was rumoured over the weekend that the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens would debut over this coming Friday, one day after fellow 2015 blockbuster Jurassic World shows off its first look. Well, it has now been confirmed – your first chance to get a glimpse at J.J Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be this Friday in select IMAX cinemas in the US. No word yet on showings outside of the land of the free or the Internet. But, no doubt there will be some bootleg copies available…
