Some ‘Star Wars’ Fans Are Refusing To Watch This Trailer, Others Can’t Hold In Their Excitement About It

“We are the spark that will light the fire that will burn the First Order down.”

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is set to premiere in theaters on Friday, December 15th and fans are freaking out about the details that were revealed in the just-released official trailer. The latest addition to the “Star Wars” sequel trilogy will be very “unexpected but right,” according to Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey. 

The trailer opens with a scene of Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) before transitioning to a quick shot of Rey training with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). This short interaction between Rey and Luke Skywalker ends with Luke Skywalker saying, “I’ve seen this raw strength only once before. It didn’t scare me enough then. It does now.” By the look on his face, you can tell Skywalker is very frightened by Rey’s force powers. A quick array of action-packed scenes follow, with a voiceover of Kylo Ren saying, “Let the past die. Kill it if you have to. That’s the only way to become what you’re meant to be.” The line is then followed by dialogue from Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), the X-wing pilot who is mentored and trusted by General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher). Dameron says, “We are the spark that will light the fire that will burn the first order down.”

The trailer concludes with a scene that gives you a glimpse of Rey and Kylo Ren. Rey says, “I need someone to show me my place in all of this.” Ren reaches out, but is he reaching out his hand towards Rey? You can’t tell for sure and this is what is making so many fans go nuts.

With so many details revealed in the trailer, some “Star Wars” fans have decided to keep their eyes shut until December 15.


Others can’t control their excitement.


The anticipation for this next episode of “Star Wars” is way too real.


But all we can do is wait… just like this little fella.

The United States And Chile Will Miss The 2018 World Cup, Here Are The Memes (And Goals)

Whew. Where do we begin. The final match day of 2018 World Cup qualifying in CONCACAF (North America, Central America & Caribbean) and CONMEBOL (South America) was intense. With the fate of several teams, including Argentina, Chile, Peru and the United States, all being decided in one day, this match day was not for the faint of heart.

Before the matches began, all eyes were on perennial World Cup favorite Argentina. Despite boasting the top player in the world, Lionel Messi, Argentina was in danger of elimination with a loss. Would Messi lead his team to victory and a trip to Russia?

Next was Peru. With a victory, “La Blanquirroja” had a chance to book a ticket to the World Cup for the first time since 1982.

The United States, despite its earlier struggles during qualification, looked to be in a good position to qualify. All the U.S. needed to advance was a win or draw against Trinidad & Tobago, a team that was already eliminated from World Cup qualification.

As the day progressed, there were lots of goals and several unexpected plot twists. Here’s how it all went down.

Less than a minute after Argentina vs. Ecuador kicked off, Ecuador scored a goal. If the result held, Argentina would have been eliminated.

But sure enough, Lionel Messi put the team on his back, scoring a hat trick to seal a victory and a trip to the World Cup.

Messi’s clutch performance made it look like this was Argentina’s starting lineup:

Messi quieted those who said he could only perform at a high level for his club team, Barcelona.

Once again, Messi became more than a hero.

Colombia vs. Peru was a nail-biter, with Colombia striking first and Peru leveling the score in the second half. The game ended in a 1-1 draw…

… which meant Chile was out of the World Cup after its 0-3 loss to Brazil.

The CONMEBOL teams that qualified for the World Cup were Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Colombia. Peru kept its World Cup hopes alive and will have a two-match playoff versus New Zealand.

Chile, the reigning Copa America champs, will experience the World Cup like many of us:

Like Argentina, the United States gave up an early goal. Unfortunately for the Stars & Stripes, they gave up a second goal to Trinidad & Tobago.

Despite being down 0-2, the U.S. was still on track to make the World Cup. Why? By halftime, Panama and Honduras, the two teams that could leapfrog the U.S. in the standings, were also losing.

Christian Pulisic gave the USMNT a lifeline with an early second half goal.

All the U.S. needed was another goal to tie the match.

But as the clock ticked, Honduras tied things up with Mexico AND Panama tied things up with Costa Rica.

Both Mexico and Costa Rica had already booked their tickets to Russia.

Then Honduras took a 3-2 lead over Mexico…

… Panama took a 2-1 lead over Costa Rica…

And the United States, which failed to score another goal, was eliminated.

The CONCACAF teams that qualified for the World Cup were Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama. Honduras will face off Australia in a two-game playoff.

Naturally, USMNT fans were devastated.

U.S. soccer journalist Grant Wahl summed up it this way:

Of course, rival fans were ready with the memes.

Even U.S. fans were roasting their team…

… and themselves.

It seemed like Pulisic was the only player to escape criticism.

Just how unlikely was the result? Here are some numbers for you:

With the U.S., Chile and Netherlands all eliminated from the World Cup, some Mexico fans rejoiced.

The U.S. eliminated Mexico from the World Cup in 2002, Argentina eliminated Mexico in back-to-back World Cups (2006 and 2010), and Netherlands eliminated Mexico in 2014 (the infamous “No Era Penal” match).

But the biggest party will happen today in Panama…

… where President Juan Carlos Varela declared a public holiday so the country can celebrate its first appearance in a World Cup.

¡Felicidades, Panama!
