The Empire is finally about to rear its ugly head, and we in Hong Kong are lucky enough to get an exclusive look at it. As Star Wars fans - or those who've simply fallen hopelessly in love with Natalie Portman - are well aware, Episode III of the saga that began back in 1977 will soon hit the big screens. But this Friday, a sneak peek of what's to come, with never-before-released footage of Star Wars: Espisode III - Revenge of the Sith, will hit the small screens in the form of a 21/2-minute trailer, as opposed to the shorter teasers that are already on the Net. Episode III tells the story of how the Galactic Empire came into being and also how Anakin Skywalker turns to the dark side. It also links up with the first three movies featuring Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford, and now known as Episodes IV, V and VI TVB will air the preview on Friday night just before their 9.30pm movie on Pearl. They will also show the five other Star Wars movies, starting on May 8, in anticipation of Episode III's premiere on May 19.
