I believe that if movies only released artfully made teaser trailers, instead of the official two-and-a-half minute ones that give up important plot points and twists, audiences would turn up to the cinema again in droves.

As for me, I’m happy knowing as little as possible about The Force Awakens plot before its release and will be perfectly content to busy myself studying every little detail I can within these precious few frames. I’ll worry about the story details once I’m sitting in the cinema with my children the way my dad did with me so many years ago.
