Hollywood star Jessica Chastain has revealed she's seen the trailer of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' 12 times

Jessica Chastain has seen the trailer of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' 12 times.

The 37-year-old actress, who starred in 'Interstellar' in 2014, has revealed she can't wait to see the much-anticipated movie and is disappointed that her 'A Most Violent Year' co-star Oscar Isaac - who also stars in the sci-fi film - hasn't secured her tickets to an advanced screening.

Asked how many times she'd seen the trailer, Jessica told Collider: "I love it - I probably watched it ... 12 times, maybe.

"It's like, 'Wow, what, what just happened!?' So, I've seen it a lot and I've been waiting for my invitation to go to an advanced screening."

Jessica joked her co-star has changed since being cast in the eagerly-awaited blockbuster, which is set for release on December 18 2015.

She quipped: "I used to get invited when Oscar was in a movie, we would go to our friend Scott Burns' house and go to the living room and watch on a DVD his movie before it came out. So, I'm waiting for him to extend the invitation, it's a bit rude that it's taking this long."

From the ashes of the Empire, the villainous First Order rises up to destroy Luke Skywalker (Hamill) – but where is he?
