We've seen a couple theater attacks already in the US, with the upcoming release of what is probably the most anticipated movie of all time how many nut jobs are already planning on using the attention and hype to draw attention and focus to themselves?

With opening showings sold out far in advance is there a risk?

Is anyone planning additional security beyond some theaters asking patrons not to attend in costume?

Scores of parents are planning to attend bringing their children along to experience Star Wars on the big screen.

Is my fear justified or unfounded?

Damn. Don't even talk like that. Too scary.

My semi-educated guess... About 2%

Attacks in the U.S. so far have been relatively minimal

Plus, nobody is allowed to wear storm trooper or darth vader masks....

I'm sticking with 2% TOPS (probably less)

I can't wait to see this movie, but I will, at least a few days to let the excitement die down.

Well that should cut down on the number of lightsaber casualties.

The odds are better than zero, but to put things into perspective your odds of being killed in a car crash on the way to the theater are far higher.

Life is risky.

I have a C&C for my Stormtrooper E11 blaster.

I apologize... I was in the middle of something when I responded...

WAY less than 2%. The odds of something happening.... in a Star Wars movie.... in the theatre you happen to be in... is somewhere VERY close to 0%.

True.

I agree, the risk is very close to 0% for each person attending Star Wars in the theater.

Does it count if they have killed my desire to see the new films through over saturation?

Good, I'm not the only one with a healthy sense of paranoia after the events in Paris. It's a good way to cause mass chaos. I doubt that anything will happen and pretty much all theaters have banned the masks and blasters of any type...so see anyone with a mask and a gun, just run.

Wish my $350 a piece custom sabers would block bullets...

I'd say that an honest terrorist attack v. a loony theatre shooter are extremely low.

If the terrorists were going to hit a target it needs to be big a visible, I'd say the Black Friday crush has a better chance than a Star Wars opening night.

With big sporting events and major cities and landmarks the most desirable.

A really good bludgeoning device, the blade heavy duty plastic and aluminum hilt. Really bright too so it's a good way to distract and blind them at night. The LEDs are so bright that you really should have the blade plugs they sell to use it as a colored flashlight.

My bet is on the Lions Thanksgiving game in Detroit.
My mom is going and I am kinda nervous about it.
All of America will be watching

Probably about as high as any other blockbuster movie release

one thing is for sure

The terrorists will not stop me going to see that movie!

Absolutely nothing. Say it again. WAR. I just had to say it.
Being as it's a 100% sure that all the viewers are rooting for the rebels I'd keep my eye open for anyone that might support the Empire. Other than that, stop being a wuss and go and see the film if you want.
