When Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released, did you feel like you'd seen a lot of the big moments already in the trailers — and if so, did that bother you?
Many fans comment that the proliferation of teasers and trailers — sometimes more than five or six per movie if you count "featurettes" and TV spots — takes away the element of surprise from a movie, and reduces fan enjoyment.
Speaking to Cinema Blend, Star Wars's own Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) said that he'd be up for a trailer-free release for #StarWars8:
"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."
If there's any movie that already has the hype going, it's this one!

This approach would mean no teasers, no trailer drops, no fan reaction videos...no articles breaking down the significance of every tiny element of the Star Wars 8 trailer. There'd be nothing but — silence. Star Wars 8 would be released untouched, a total mystery.
It's extreme, but would you up for that approach? It'd be kinda cool, right?
How should they release 'Star Wars 8'?
