“‘5-25-77’ is like ‘Dazed and Confused’ for Star Wars geeks” – c|net
“For Star Wars fans, the date May 25, 1977 holds religious-like importance. It’s the day the original film came out. It’s also the title of the new film “5-25-77,” which is part teenage comedy and part love letter to late-’60s/’70s films like “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “Jaws” and, of course, the film that would change everything for so many, “Star Wars.”
“The film will finally be released in theaters on May 25, 2017, bringing it all full circle…” – Nerdist
“In 1977, Patrick Read Johnson was one of the first people outside of ILM employees to see Star Wars before it was finished—subsequently cementing his place as the very first Star Wars fanboy.”
