After the latest trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is aired during tomorrow's Monday Night Football game between the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings, you should expect to see hundreds of sites breaking down each frame in search of clues regarding the upcoming film. The Last Jedi writer and director Rian Johnson believes that if you want to go into the film clean, you should completely bypass viewing it.
Once word got out that a new trailer was on the horizon, one Twitter user brought up to Johnson how he previously advised people to "avoid everything" until The Last Jedi came out.
"I [am] legitimately torn. If you want to come in clean, absolutely avoid it," Johnson wrote.
Viewing trailers, in general, can be a very polarizing issue among moviegoers. Some people will typically avoid trailers because they don't want any clues presented to them while others see the trailer as a means of hyping them up for what they're going to see in the coming months. For a film like The Last Jedi, it ultimately comes down to the person's preference. Maybe you watch the very first trailer to whet your appetite, but avoid everything else from there on out.
When it comes to preventing yourself from overhearing or scrolling past what people will say about the upcoming trailer, well, that's a whole 'nother problem.
