‘Star Wars’ Spoiled For Crowd When Movie In Theatre Skips Ahead

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ fans go crazy after faulty projector spoils ending – watch.

University Of California student Erik Melendez recently uploaded a video of cinema-goers booing and screaming “no!” after the film froze and then skipped to the end, giving away the movie’s big twist, during one screening.Disney and JJ Abrmas went out of their way to prevent any Star Wars: The Force Awakening spoilers leaking onto the internet early, refusing to put the film forward for awards in order to avoid handing out sampler film DVDs to judges. Melendez wrote on Facebook: “Projector at Star Wars midnight 3D show at the Arclight ruined, stopped, then started again towards the end of the movie.

While attending a midnight screening, likely in the hope of avoiding any spoilers in the coming days, some fans’ experiences were ruined after a malfunctioning projector skipped a huge segment of the film, revealing the ultimate twist prematurely. The movie was spoiled and everyone in the theater went crazy.” Meanwhile, analysts have put the decimation of web traffic over the last week down to Star Wars fans avoiding spoilers for The Force Awakens, which was released on Thursday (December 17). Fans were able to watch the film from midnight on Thursday, and since the first public screenings average traffic in the UK has tumbled by 5.5%, and by 10.9% in France. That smashes the previous opening day record of $91.1 million, set by 2011’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. (Studios count Thursday night grosses as part of opening day.) Disney is projecting a domestic weekend total of around $220 million, which would surpass the record $208.8 million of Jurassic World. It’s a type of release never before seen in December, where the previous top opening was 2012’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey with $84.6 million.

Speaking to The Guardian, a digital strategist at cyber-monitoring firm Imperva said, “In the 12 hours after the first screenings of Star Wars in UK we noticed that traffic levels remained relatively low. In brighter news, an Atlanta father and son made some great memories by sitting through an entire “Star Wars” marathon, taking in the first six films before a screening of “Force Awakens.”
