Many are tuning in for Monday Night Football, but quite a few more are tuning in for the debut of the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ trailer.

The intergalactic, out of this world Odell Beckham, Jr., a game-time decision with a hamstring injury suffered in last Sunday night’s victory over the San Francisco 49ers, opened Monday night’s scoring for the New York Giants, down 17-7 to the Philadelphia Eagles heading into the half.
To the delight of countless movie buffs and sci-fi fanatics everywhere is yet another intergalactic occurrence: the international debut of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens full-length trailer, airing during halftime of ESPN’s Monday Night Football broadcast.[su_youtube url=”https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=erLk59H86ww”]
Disney and Lucasfilm already released two teaser trailers on Thanksgiving weekend last year and this past May, both of which aired via YouTube to much fanfare.[su_youtube url=”https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ngElkyQ6Rhs”]
Monday night’s trailer is releasing almost two months to the day that Episode VII is ultimately released in theaters on December 18, a day after director JJ Abrams’s studio leaked the film’s final theatrical movie poster, on the same day that Fandango is selling pre-ordered tickets to the general public.[su_button url=”https://elitesportsny.com/2015/10/18/new-york-mets-take-game-2-of-nlcs-4-1-against-chicago-cubs/” target=”blank” background=”#000080″ size=”10″ wide=”yes” center=”yes” radius=”0″]NEXT: Murphy, Mets Take NLCS Game 2[/su_button]
