'Star Wars: The Last Jedi': Theaters issue warning over silent scene [Spoilers]
UPI News Service, 12/30/2017
Movie theaters are issuing warnings to audiences attending screenings of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" over a scene in the film that contains no sound.
Theaters including AMC have posted signs that explain to moviegoers that the scene is intentionally silent and that no technical difficulties are taking place.
"Please note: The Last Jedi contains a sequence at approximately 1 hour and 52 minutes into the movie in which ALL sound stops for about 10 full seconds," reads a note posted by AMC that was shared on Facebook by comedian Paul Scheer.
"While the images continue to play on the screen you will hear nothing. This is intentionally done by the director for a creative effect."
The scene involves star Laura Dern as Holdo crashing her ship at light-speed directly into a First Order destroyer.
The ensuing crash and explosion are seen on-screen with no sound.
