From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:

By KRISTIN DIZON
SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER REPORTER

Jeff Tweiten lives on a periwinkle blue, fold-out futon on the sidewalk in front of the Cinerama Theatre.

He is not homeless, but camping out for 139 days. Waiting.

For Godot, you wonder? An organ transplant? The end of the world?

Jeff Tweiten is already waiting in line outside the Cinerama in downtown Seattle for the next "Star Wars" film.

Tweiten is waiting for "Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith," which opens May 19.

Maybe I'd understand it if I were more of a sci-fi fan, but geez...

I saw the interview with that clown.....

anyone who will wait more than a week or two...three tops....in line for good tickets to the premiere is a complete wastoid who obviously did not see episode one, or the added/changed footage on the re-releases of the original trilogy.

Is my Pan Am ticket to the moon still good?

I'd love to see him camp out at the cinema here in Kingston (Ontario, Canada)....we have a windchill warning in effect due to it being -30 to -40C tonight!! I'm guessing it wouldn't be long before he packed up his futon!! hehe

Cheers

He supposedly is a freelance graphic designer who is working on his laptop there and is connected to the internet from his cellphone, that's according to a local TV station over here. I'll try and see if I can find and article to back it up.

I don't think I would wait a week for a kidney, much less a movie.

Seriously though, I was a youth when Star Wars, Empire & Jedi came out and don't remember waiting more than an hour or so.

This movie will be out on DVD in due time.

Learn patience young jedi, you'll live longer and watch idiots do a lot of thing you would do if you didn't practice patience.

Yeeahh....

Patience have I, padwan learner.

I also plan on seeing this film in the theaters, but I will be picking up my tickets in the will call line after I buy them online.

After the last two Lucas abortions, it's like a 139 day wait in front of the video store for Starship Troopers III

Thecoz, please be advised that I was banned for 2 weeks for posting that image. You may want to contact the 'moderating' crew for further clarification, since a moderator to remain unnamed (should be obvious who) invented the rule on the spot.

Who the hell would want to see EP 1 through 3 anyway? I'm sorry but those 'new' ones just pi$$ed so many people off here.

The editied footage on the Trilogy DVD is annoying too, but some aspects of it is good like how they have made some effects better its still not good enough.
