Adam Driver Wants No Trailers For ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’

Trailers: they’re a staple of the movie industry. To get a glimpse of an upcoming movie as opposed to walking in blind is a big help for the audiences. In the comic book movie industry, trailers are a way for fans to gauge their interest in a specific movie and to make an assessment about the upcoming hero onscreen. A movie without a trailer is basically a test without studying. Without prior knowledge of what the movie is about and no visual aid, how would one enjoy the movie? Sure, audiences can find out what the movie is about when they step into theaters but would that be enough to make them want to buy a ticket beforehand? Adam Driver wants to test that experiment out for the next installment of the Star Wars franchise, Episode VIII:

“I think that’d be bold. I’d love it, yeah! Then no one would know anything. The less people know, I feel like, the more exciting… the more of an event it is.”

Not much is known about the eight installment of the saga and ninth movie overall with Rogue One set to debut this week. If it was up to Adam Driver, who plays Kylo Ren in the saga. Ren is the child of Han Solo and Leia Skywalker making him Darth Vader’s grandson. Star Wars: Episode VIII is set to release sometime next year.
