The Force Is With Egypt As Star Wars Premieres First Here

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' is out in less than a month but Egypt gets it before the dorks in both the US and UK.

Staff Writer
Living in Egypt isn’t all bad. Case in point: Egypt will be one of the first countries people can watch Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens in cinemas. Egyptians will be one with the freshly napped Force two full days before America is and 24 whole hours before the UK. 
Our faith is being rewarded, in the face of the prequels, the ewok movies, and the dreaded Holiday Special, by the J.J. Abrams directed sequel to Return Of The Jedi on December 16th. 
Like us you’ve probably been pouring over every trailer, teaser, tv spot, charity video, and bit of footage from dudes with drones flying over the set in a (mostly) vain attempt to ruin the plot for ourselves and everyone else around us.  
Now Egyptians have unlimited spoiler power to spam the internet with all sorts of information that will enrage and sent pinkies worldwide reaching for the caps lock key. This though, is the path to the dark side. That doesn’t mean you can’t just make stuff up and post it to Facebook as if it was a real spoiler. Like you could tell everyone Luke opens up a portal to an alternate timeline so they can redo the prequels, or Jar Jar was the big bad guy the whole time.
Whether you use this gift for good or evil is up to. All we know is that you better buy your IMAX tickets quick. Either dial 2121 on any Vodafone number or get to elcinema and pay with a credit card (if you can get it to work) set up to pay at any Fawry location.
We’ll see you there and May The Force Be With You
