The Idiocy of "Star Wars" Fans - 04/07/05 07:20 AM

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- "Star Wars" fans will have to find the right theater before they can leave for the dark side.

Seven weeks before its release, "Star Wars" fanatics started lining up outside Grauman's Chinese Theater for the sixth installment of the popular George Lucas movie series. The vigil began Saturday.

But there's a problem: "Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith" won't be showing at the Hollywood landmark when the movie is released May 19. The studio, 20th Century Fox, opted instead to open the film a mile away at the ArcLight theater.

Still, the resolute "Star Wars" die-hards aren't moving on. Beneath a makeshift awning, 11 people refused to relinquish their spots in line.

"We've heard all this before," fan Sarah Sprague said, noting there were plenty of rumors in 1999 and 2002 that previous "Star Wars" movies weren't opening at the Chinese Theater. The rumors were false and the films were shown there.

Fox and the ArcLight haven't completed their "Star Wars" deal, but executives on both sides told Daily Variety "Revenge of the Sith" will play at the ArcLight, not the Chinese.

Yet Sprague was adamant the line wouldn't be moving to the ArcLight.

"This is still the epicenter for 'Star Wars' fans. For the big iconic pictures of the 1970s, people lining up were here. They weren't at the Cinerama Dome (at the ArcLight)," Sprague said.

Lucas' final "Star Wars" chapter spells out the last dark steps the once goodhearted young Anakin Skywalker takes to become the villain Darth Vader.

Fucking women!!!! It is STAR WARS for christs sakes. VADER BABY!!!! Darth Mother fucking VADER. The Wookie enslavement, the fall of the jedi, the rise of the emporer. Sure these kids are miss guided, or are they?

George Lucas has been famous for keeping his secrets on all the star wars films. There was only 1 actor who knew vador was luke father in empire. It was filmed on a closed set.

I would not doubt that the movie is shown at the theater the kids are at. BTW, if it isn't to be shown there... why is there a huge A-wing there?

They're probably pissed that the kids are there so early and it's driving away business (shit a line of a few thousand nerds comeon htf do they expect people to get to the ticket booths?)... I'd be willing to bet it'll be there, why would they want to chante venues after showing the last ones there for crying out loud...

I agree though, don't these idiots have jobs? Famalies? Have to go to the bathroom? Need to eat? what do they have a lackey who shits/pisses/eats/fucks their wives for them?

Fucking men!!! Who really gives a fuck, sintax? Standing in line for anything for 7 fucking weeks is fucking retarded. Newsflash, you can wait and rent the fucking movie for 4 bucks when it comes out on video, and you'll only have to fight with the other retards in your town to get a copy. Believe it or not, you WILL live that long, besides...secret or not secret they all blow anyways.


*runs*


the truth hurts.

You girls just don't get it.

But neither do I, so it's moot.

Anyway, there's no reason to get fired up about it ("Fucking men!!! Who really gives a fuck, sintax? Standing in line for anything for 7 fucking weeks is fucking retarded. Newsflash, you can wait and rent the fucking movie for 4 bucks"). They're not doing anything wrong, not hurting anyone. Just being super weird.

Let it be

I would never wait 7 weeks for a movie. I have bills to pay, porn to look at, crak to smoke, you know... Stuff to do. However, these guys are just sitting there to say they were the first. People have done much worse to have a title. Just look at ripley's belive it or not.

As far as the movies sucking... I rather enjoy the star wars saga. It is a good verses evil world to get lost in. I do however realise when the credits roll the movie is over. Bish however will still be on her knees sucking my light saber. So what really sucks here.

/me catches bish by the hair and gives her a movie ticket. See you inside
