So this is how the Star Wars empire collapses.
Some genius involved in the Minecraft movie decided the best day to release it was the same day as the final entry of the current Star Wars trilogy. It seems like none of the shot callers in the business of making movies into video games is capable of making a good decision, which is such a shame when there are genuine artists like Duncan Jones trying their best.
Without getting into too much of a rant, this decision doesn't speak much to the studio's confidence in their film. It will be interesting to see what other information comes out between now and then.
