UPDATE - 3:35 PM ET:  Various other theater chains (Cinemark, Carmike, etc.) have confirmed that they'll be showing the trailer. Current tallies put the number of nationwide theaters confirmed to be showing the trailer in the 20-30 range. Details are still TBA.

UPDATE - 2:28 PM ET:  @AMCTheatres tweets that "they've heard the Star Wars news" and will have more info soon, along with a meme pic of Yoda on Luke's back captioned, "Patience you must have, my young padawan." We can safely assume that the trailer premiere will NOT be a Regal exclusive -- more theaters in more locations than the original 9 posted by Regal. They later update that select AMCs will play the trailer on Friday, "locations soon."

UPDATE - 1:34 PM ET: J. J. Abrams confirmed the Friday trailer release with a handwritten note tweeted from the @bad_robot account at 1:34 PM ET. In the note, Abrams tips that the preview will be 88 seconds long. Still no official details on specific showtimes other than Abrams' confirmation of "select theaters."

UPDATE - 11:11 AM ET: At approximately 11:10 AM ET, the text on the trailer announcement page on the Regal Cinemas website was deleted. The Star Wars image was replaced with a meme-inspired pic of Mon Mothma with the caption: "Many Bothans died to bring us this information."

UPDATE - 10:22 AM ET: At approximately 10:20 AM ET, the Regal Cinemas tweet announcing the trailer debut, and a corresponding Facebook post, were deleted. The theater also briefly posted an "opening crawl"-style announcement on YouTube which was removed. The listing page on their website remains live.

ORIGINAL STORY: Word of the trailer's debut first came by way of an unexpected source on Monday morning -- the Twitter account for Regal Cinemas which posted a link to their website showing a list of only 9 theaters (at this time). These theaters will be showing the trailer in front of every film November 28-30.

The Regal announcement came just before 9AM ET, and at this time there's been no update to StarWars.com and no other official comment from Disney/Lucasfilm. There are online reports that other theaters will be announcing plans soon, and that the list will be expanding -- it's likely that the Regal release is the first in a series of announcement.
