If your local cineplex is especially quite this week, it might be because there isn’t much to see. Sure, there are still a few holdovers from previous weeks, but not a single major blockbuster hit theaters this week.
Thankfully, the trailers almost made up for it this week. The highlight of the week was actually only half a new trailer, but that’s really all it takes when it’s Star Wars. We got a new glimpse of the upcoming trilogy conclusion, The Rise of Skywalker, from Disney’s D23 event early this week, and it was just enough to get us excited. But that was just the tip of the iceberg, as you’ll see when you scroll down to watch the rest of the trailers.
