‘Star Wars’ still not locked down for China release.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (NYSE:DIS) still hasn’t locked down a release in key market China, according to execs on the Imax earnings call, though they are hopeful that it can come in January. “We’re hopeful and optimistic” for a January release, says Imax Entertainment (NYSE:IMAX) President Greg Foster. “But until the date is finalized it’s only a ‘guesstimate.’ ” With heavy investment in China, Imax may need a quick China release even more than Disney. Others have speculated that a hooded figure who places a black, artificial hand on droid R2-D2 in the promo might be Obi-Wan Kenobe’s erstwhile disciple in disguise. Asked by the Associated Press at the GLSEN Respect Awards if there was a reason for Skywalker’s omission from the trailer and other marketing, Abrams admitted: “It’s no accident.” He added: “These are good questions to be asking. I can’t wait for you to find out the answers.” Skywalker’s absence has inspired such frenzied speculation not only because Hamill was the ostensible star of the original Star Wars trilogy, but also because Abrams has previously revealed the question, “Who is Luke Skywalker?” inspired him to sign on for the long-running space opera.

Advance ticket sales on both sides of the Atlantic have obliterated previous records, leading to speculation that Abrams’ film might challenge Avatar for the mantle of highest-grossing movie of all time.
