Star Wars: The Last Jedi - tributes to Carrie Fisher at LA premiere

Star Wars Battlefront 2's Free Last Jedi Season Of Content Launches

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' has been hailed as the best film in the franchise, according to some who have been lucky enough to already see it.

The actor filmed her role in the movie before her tragic death last December.

However, the finished product is now on the brink of a grand theatrical release.

Writer-director Rian Johnson opened the screening with a tribute, urging fans to "have a blast. for Carrie". They range from the greatest Star Wars movie ever (OMG!), to better than Empire Strikes back to the exceptional, but not quite as good as Empire. One specific thing that has been of note is Mark Hamill's performance as Luke Skywalker, which some have called award-worthy.

He's not wrong. Watch our full red carpet interviews with Boyega, Ridley, Christie, Hamill, and more in the clip below, and continue to get hyped for Star Wars: The Last Jedi to premiere this Friday, Dec. 15.

Grae Drake, a senior editor with movie and TV review site Rotten Tomatoes, described it as "as epic and sweeping as all the other films combined" with moments "that will make your head pop off" - in a good way.

This is incredibly gratifying for Star Wars fans and Rian Johnson fans.

Lionel Messi lobbies for Gonzalo Higuain return to Argentina side
Messi said: "Mascherano? I'm not going to tell you what he told me, but I'll understand if he leaves, he wants to play more". They moved early, as Messi would have been able to speak to City in the New Year if he had not signed a new deal.

He was joined on the red carpet by the rest of the all-star cast, including Daisy Ridley (Rey in the space saga) who arrived wearing a suitably shimmering dress decorated in stars. The evening featured dozens of "Star Wars" stormtroopers and droids marching down the carpet into Shrine Auditorium, where lucky viewers - including the star-studded cast - would later get a chance to watch the film before it hits theaters on December 15.

"It's very messy. The categorizing of good and evil is all mixed together".

Leia Organa had commissioned Poe Dameron (Oscar Issac) to find Luke as well.

"When you're trying to survive, the First Order's right on top of us, it is like war, where you've got to keep moving to try to survive".

What will success look like?

Experts are predicting an opening weekend domestic box office of around $220 million, which would push it beyond "Jurassic World" (2015) into second place behind "Awakens" ($248 million).

"But it really resonates with what it is to follow your own human, dark, narcissistic tendencies, where that will take you".
