FTN EXCLUSIVE: Star Wars: The Force Awakens running time and UK rating confirmed UPDATED: IMDB Confirm running time

October 10th, 2015 by Marc 1 Comment


Remember when we broke the news of when the Batman V Superman trailer would debut when everyone else was saying it would be attached to Max Max: Fury Road (here)? And we were spot on?

Well, the source that gave us that info has revealed the UK details on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

We are 100% certain this info is good, guys.

It’s almost as safe a bet as going to LV Bet.

So, without further ado, the movie will be rated 12A (we know it says TBC but we reckon it’s a safe bet) and will run for 136mins.

This is very cool, it means that it is still (just about) a family movie and the running time is consistent with the other Star Wars movies:

A New Hope – 121 minutes
The Empire Strikes Back – 124 minutes
Return of the Jedi – 131 minutes
The Phantom Menace – 133 minutes
Attack of the Clones – 142 minutes
Revenge of the Sith – 140 minutes


UPDATE: IMDB confirm running time at 2hrs 16mins


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
