Disney releases `Star Wars: The Force Awakens` trailer on Insta.

A video has been released on Instagram to promote the newest film in the Star Wars saga. Disney has recently released the trailer of J.J Abrams’s directorial ‘Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens,’ which features John Boyega and Daisy Ridley, on social networking site for the fans.Star Wars: The Force Awakens is predicted to smash the world record for biggest global box-office opening this December with a haul in the region of $615m (Dh2.2 billion), according to Hollywood trade bible Deadline. The 10-second clip was simply captioned: “There has been an awakening…” and features a vast army of Stormtroopers and close-ups of new characters, including Finn, played by John Boyega, holding a lightsaber.

The clip opens with a scene where Daisy Ridley’s character Rey is looking up into the sky and previously seen image of the new baddie Kylo Ren carrying a lightsabre and ends on the John Boyega’s character Finn. The site claims a combination of Star Wars’ enduring multigenerational popularity, a lack of competition around the film’s December 18 opening and the increasing ability of digital projection to add screens in rapid time to meet demand will power JJ Abrams’s film way beyond the $524.4m mark reached by Jurassic World in June . Deadline also believes increases in the number of Imax screens (from 800 to 920 worldwide by December), which draw a higher premium, will benefit the film. The second, released on YouTube in April, was confirmed by Guinness World Records as officially the most viewed film trailer in a 24-hour period after being watched 30 million times. Such is the confidence in the new Star Wars film that a record US opening weekend haul in excess of $300m is predicted, almost $100m ahead of Jurassic World’s $208.8m.

The only obstacle would be China, which is closed to Hollywood films during the month of December, when only Chinese productions are given permission to screen at the world’s second largest box office. AskAJedi.com — as reliable a source as you’ll find for the answers to such questions — says that a non-Jedi can technically wield a lightsaber, but that it’s not a very good idea; without the power of the Force to guide you, you can’t use a lightsaber to deflect blaster shots, which means a single well-placed laser blaster shot from many yards away could take you down. Deadline’s anonymous source also believes Disney, which bought the rights to Star Wars in October 2012, is playing all the right cards ahead of the movie’s release. The story to me is that Disney and Lucasfilm are acting rationally, confidently and not cocky.” Poor critical reactions to the film may even end up being irrelevant to its opening figures, though Abrams’s flawless track record suggests the film is likely to be well-reviewed. If the film does receive a negative reaction from fans on social media the day after a viewing, however, its long-term chances of vying with Avatar for the mantle of highest-grossing film of all time could torpedo.
